Meet Judith Ré
Judith Ré is the founder and president of the Judith Ré Academie for Instruction in the Social Graces, a company she founded in 1986 to teach good manners to children and adults attending her weekend classes at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston.   

She is a recognized author and expert on etiquette, and has directed programs in many major cities across the nation. An accomplished speaker and lecturer, she has conducted seminars for thousands of participants over the past 24 years.  

Ms. Ré is the originator of the trademarked "Social Savvy" ®, a term describing her unique teaching and writing techniques that emphasize interacting with the world using grace and style. The Social Savvy® approach to etiquette for children and adults involves a simple approach involving role-playing, repetition, and "hands on" vivid examples of good manners.  

She is also the author of Social Savvy®: A Teenager's Guide to Feeling Confident in Any Situation, published by Simon & Schuster, which went through 14 printings over the course of more than a decade. The book was excerpted for newspapers nationwide by The New York Times Syndicate and Ms. Ré cooperated with her publisher in an active  7 cities nationwide media tour for that book.

Ms. Ré attended private schools in New England. She is a great believer in using etiquette as a tool for social responsibility, and participated in a national conference at the University of North Carolina on "Civility in the Workplace." 

Judith Ré is an engaging media subject with considerable interview experience.  Ms. Ré and her trademarked Social Savvy® program have been the subject of numerous print and broadcast features in the U.S. and abroad.

Manners, etiquette and the trademarked SOCIAL SAVVY® instructional technique

" Boston's Ritz-Carlton is the sort of place where you instinctively want to trot out your best manners, the ones you save for occasions...The point of Social Savvy is to become the sort of person who feels at home in places like The Ritz-Carlton."
