“Manners are the sensitive awareness of the feelings of others” – Emily Post
As William Shakespeare wrote, “What’s in a name?”. We’ve all experienced going up to greet someone only to realise that we’ve forgotten their name; but, if this person has a title, in which situations are we expected to use it?
Join Jodie as we ask Lady Mayoress, Nina Schrinner, all things respect, kindness and etiquette when it comes to talking to people of importance and how she teaches manners and etiquette to her children whilst still having time to do everything else.

About your Guest, Lady Mayoress Nina Shrinner
Nina is a mother of four, a lawyer and former special advisor to the Federal Attorney General.
She was born in Queensland and has spent most of her life living in Brisbane’s eastern suburbs. Nina has a real passion for people and loves the opportunity to provide encouragement and support for the fantastic work being done by charities across Brisbane. Like her husband Adrian, she believes that the sign of a strong, healthy city is a city with a big heart.
As the Chair of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust, Nina is devoted to ensuring the Trust not only continues supporting grassroots charities that are having such a big impact on our community but also enhancing Brisbane’s reputation as a friendly and compassionate city that will host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
