Good manners aren’t just for children. If you are interested in brushing up on business etiquette and international protocol skills, sign up for my evening class at the Rhodes College Meeman Center for Adult Learning. I’m teaching three, two-hour sessions from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. starting Wednesday, Oct. 29 and ending Nov. 12. Until then, behave yourself!
Although "school is out" for all of us right now, during non-pandemic times, seminars are facilitated by Penny Aviotti, also known as “Ms. Corporate Manners,” a certified Intercultural Etiquette and Protocol Trainer by The Protocol School of Washington, the only-accredited protocol and etiquette school in the nation that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Aviotti also is a certified Bridges Out of Poverty trainer specializing in “Hidden Rules at Work,” a workshop that examines the correlation between an individual's resources and his or her promotion and success in the workplace. Her seminars garnered the 2019 Best of Memphis Award in the category of Etiquette and Training Services.
