After speaking to Peggy Newfield, who called me immediately, I knew I had to look no further for a school.  I loved watching her teach the children each day. Our 800 page manuals are more information that I could have imagined; literally every detail is done for us to begin our business. Besides the wealth of knowledge, I made friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Upon requesting information, Peggy called me immediately; I believe all the business in this arena should do that.  I thought I was going to get an e-mail response and certainly not the same day.  I was impressed with Peggy and how she ran her business.

Having children come in each day was the bonus that made the class better than I could have imagined when I selected ASP.

The table scape design class was incredible.  I never thought I could make flower arrangements like we did.  We received exciting ideas about how to make the tables beautiful for the children.  Cheap, effective, very live and so easy.

I went online to look for an Etiquette School.  

Peggy’s personal call answered my prayer about what etiquette school to choose.  I loved the idea that I would get “one on one” training time with the children.  Dolores was so helpful in our class on dining when each trainee had to present in “teaching format,” a portion of how we would instruct our students.

I have learned so much this week at ASP. For me, dining has always been a pleasure. Through my husband's business, we have so many receptions and dinners to attend. I now feel confident after participating in The American School of Protocol's Corporate Trainer Certification Program, and that I will be able to teach my airline colleagues proper etiquette.

Peggy, your kind and gracious style is what I will always strive to become.

As a graduate of The American School of Protocol Children's Etiquette Certification Program, I started my own children's etiquette business and have had great success. The question I am most often asked is, "Do you also teach adults?" To most effectively prepare for this, I knew the Corporate Etiquette Certification class would prepare me to branch out to teaching adults.

Once again, I feel ready to hit the ground running!

What a fabulous week all of us had in Atlanta.

What a delight to finally meet you and your staff. I couldn't wait to get to Atlanta to begin my training. As you know, I had attended another certification program before knowing about you. My experience at The American School of Protocol will stay with me forever. The training at The Buckhead Club, the time spent in the Neiman Marcus store studying professional dress, and all the participants in our class will always remain in my memory.

Thank you, Peggy, for your patience and for being so gracious to all of us. Your staff is extremely polished. I look forward to seeing you again in October at the Children's Certification Training.

After attending the Children's Training Certification three months ago, I knew I wanted to come back to have your Corporate Training Certification. I am so happy I made it back from China in time. I am learning so much from you.

As you know, Mandarin is my first language. All of my time with you and your staff has truly encouraged me to start my own etiquette business.

Peggy, saying "thank you" is not enough to describe my appreciation to you. But still, thank you very much. I hope the best for you.

"I participated in The American School of Protocol’s® July 2011 children’s Train The Trainer five day etiquette program.  This training has changed my life.  After being  in the corporate world for close to twenty years, I knew it was time to take that leap of faith and go out on my own. The training I received at ASP, has given me not only the knowledge about etiquette and incredible lessons plans, but also the confidence to start my own business."

“Having the opportunity to work with the children each day was helpful.  The children soaked up the information and Peggy Newfield made it look so effortless.  She engaged the children the entire time. Now I see  why there are no discipline problems with the children, using our outstanding training manual."

“Thank you, Peggy, for sharing all of your stories, successes and mistakes along the way.  You have made this training so easy and enjoyable.  There is so much more to learn and although all of us were exhausted at the end of the day, we still wanted to learn more. You and your staff, have such a gentle way of motivating all of us to do our best and teach  children what is so needed in our society today.  After attending The American School of Protocol®, I know I will be successful in spreading your words in hopes of making my community a better place."

"Now that the class is over, I miss my fellow trainees. We are keeping in touch and holding each other accountable for getting things started.  What a great group of women! I don't feel alone in this journey knowing them, the awesome staff at ASP and of course knowing Peggy."

Peggy,

When I signed up for your Children's and Corporate certification, I had no idea how wonderful my training experience would be. The elegant Buckhead Club where we studied each day, our clothing training in Atlanta's premier store, Neiman Marcus, and the comradery, sharing time with other classmates, was invaluable. I loved the stories, the socializing and the education. Thank you for this opportunity.

As a graduate of the Children's Etiquette Training, I could not imagine how you could possibly get any better, but you have!

The Corporate training was more than I ever dreamed. I have learned about clothing and speaking skills that will serve me well in the future. The trip to Neiman's was a valuable learning experience. I promise to give up catalog shopping and visit the store to train my eye. Who knew my eye needed training?!?!

Thank you for a fabulous week.

One of our classes during our certification was with our speech coach, Toria Tolley from CNN.

Toria gave us so much information on how to omit filler words which, I admit, I really did not know I was using. We also received great tips on verbal and non-verbal communication. I will always remember Toria's quote, 'It is not the message, It's the messenger."

Thank you, American School of Protocol, for being all I was looking for and much, much more. Our hotel, meals, and instructors were superior. Having been in the military for 29 years, I was not sure the classes would be fast paced enough for me.

Well, they were! I recommend this company to anyone looking for serious knowledge in etiquette and protocol.

Thank you, Peggy, for sharing your wisdom with such passion and strength.

The American School of Protocol® was exactly what we expected.  An extensive curriculum was presented in a logical, organized manner.  However, I was not certain as to what type of person and instructor owner and founder, Peggy Newfield, would be. From my limited interaction with her, I expected a very prim and proper impersonal individual. To my surprise and delight, she was quite different. She is a friendly, kind, caring, warm, witty, savvy businesswoman. My field is accounting and I consider myself a "knowledge snob" that will only listen to someone who knows their subject area.

Ms. Newfield is not just someone who knows her subject area, she is an "expert".
