Our July Children’s Etiquette Certification class was an exciting one. Eleven fabulous women came to Atlanta seeking certification to teach etiquette to children. They left The American School of Protocol® with tons of information and ideas for their new businesses. We can’t wait to see what they do next!
Our newest etiquette “sisters” are:
- Candace Smith – Orange, CA
- Charlene Bleakley – Marina Del Rey, CA
- Carmen E. Rivera – Staten Island, NY
- Robin Bulatao – Southlake, TX
- Candis Duecker – Platte City, MO
- Patricia Rossel – League City, TX
- Barbara Flowers – St. Joseph, MI
- Karla Redditte – Huntsville, AL
- Lisa Lutz – Camarillo, CA
- Ruth Richardson – Columbia, TN

We wish each of them much success. As we know, teaching this important information is so rewarding. For we are not just teaching, we are making a difference in a child’s life.
The American School of Protocol®’s June 8 – 10 weekend Children’s Etiquette Certification workshop in Atlanta, GA was a huge success. During this training we focus on relationship-building with a parent and child. As a teacher, mentor and role model, our responsibilities to our students are enormous and every small detail is included. If you are a motivated self-starter this certification option may be for you.
Our Next 3-Day Children’s Etiquette Certification Training workshop is November 16 – 18, 2012 in Atlanta, GA. To learn more about this program click here!
AWe suggest that when placing your food order, ask the waiter if the shrimp dish is prepared with or without the tails attached. You can then tell the waiter what your preference is.
If the tails were not removed, you can gently remove the tails with your hands before eating the pasta.
During our Etiquette Certification Courses, we devote a whole section of our training manual to Correspondence. We instruct our trainees not only how to communicate with their clients, but also on how to choose correspondence stationery that correlates with their business.
We have to give a big thank you to Paces Paper, located in Atlanta, GA for allowing The American School of Protocol® to have a truly hands on learning experience. Jackie Garson Howard, owner of Paces Paper, educated the participants on stationery and captivated everyone with the beautiful styles of crane paper that are available.
Deciding on paper texture, size, color and fonts that will represent an individual and their business can often be challenging. At Paces Paper, Jackie gave her expert advice. She laid the ground work for where to begin and what to stay away from.
Correspondence cards and stationery can leave a lasting impression. Taking the time to invest and find a stand out stationery is 100% worth it!!
“It has been a tremendous honor to study under Peggy Newfield. She is a perfectionist in all that she does, providing her students with excellent, current, precise and thorough information. Ms. Newfield’s delivery is truly incredible. A role model for every professional.”
“Having completed both the Children’s Train the Trainer Certification and the Corporate Etiquette Certification programs, I feel prepared to teach any and all types of clients. The material is very thorough and Ms. Newfield’s experiences and wealth of knowledge is invaluable.”
“I highly enjoyed the week long Corporate Training program. I have no regrets for the amount of time spent with Peggy and the cost for attending the Corporate Etiquette Training. The information provided in the manuals is useful and will be a great asset for me while I am developing my business.”
“I am just in awe of the class content and ‘hands on’ training that I received. There aren’t enough words to express this wonderful training.”
“Having been through both the Children’s Training Program and Corporate Etiquette Certification, I have nothing but kudos for both! The information and the process for both was well thought out and well taught.”
It was beneficial to see all the “trends” as well as the foundational basics. We were sent out into the store to put together a male and female business outfit using the information and styles that were presented during Rebecca’s session. It inspired me to think of my existing clients and select wardrobe items that would be helpful when the sales team is on the road.
The Corporate Dress session that took place at Neiman Marcus is an exceptional opportunity. The format was informative, interactive and entertaining. I gained invaluable information and exposure.
The time at Neiman Marcus was very educational as well as enjoyable. It was great to have genuine “hands on instructions”. Rebecca wowed us with fashion trends, tips and plenty of information to share with our clients.
Being updated on clothing and having to select various outfits was essential. In addition to the information we gained at Neiman Marcus, the presentations and the critiques we received were so significant to the learning process.
In today’s world, there are many different business industries. Each industry has a different clothing standard. It was great to see how to not only look professional with corporate attire, but in casual wear as well.
The American School of Protocol® is an extraordinary Etiquette Training Company. During the 5-Day Train the Trainer program, each trainee is provided the unique opportunity to watch Peggy teach and mesmerize the children as well as gain an actual experience through teaching children etiquette daily.
This valuable training technique not only affords the Trainees a chance to use their new found knowledge immediately, it also creates an excitement and confidence within them. Trainees realized that their dreams of owning their own business are not just a possibility, but a reality.
Thank you so much for the valuable information I received during the Children’s Train the Trainer Program. I participated in the Corporate class first under the assumption I did not need the children’s Training. Boy was I wrong.
The children’s course was so informative as to business start-up procedures, interacting with young people, how to form classes and what to teach.
I cannot say enough about the manuals. I was amazed that every topic is covered! The individual Break-out Sessions were fantastic. There were areas where more one-on-one attention took place and even more instruction was given. The session with Mary Donne, ASP’s Corporate Attorney answered my questions pertaining to the business side of forming my company.
I am very glad I took both classes and I have no regrets in the order in which I took them.
Corporate Training taught me how to be Professional, The Children’s Training taught me how to teach.
