Meet the Author

Patsy Rowe is a woman of extraordinary talent who has achieved enormous success, much of which can be attributed to her positive attitude, wicked sense of humour and her impeccable manners. Patsy has written more than 10 books covering self help, women's issues, management, business and travel, but she is most widely known for her expertise in business and personal etiquette. She can be heard regularly giving etiquette advice on radio although nowadays she combines being a best selling author with coaching in business etiquette and conducting nationwide seminars that are as much fun as they are informative.
