Johnson's leadership The Protocol School of Washington® established a
tradition of excellence by providing the most comprehensive protocol
and etiquette training and certification programs available. The
school developed a market presence recognized worldwide as the best in
the industry. Dorothea Johnson was the first etiquette expert to
recognize a need for professionally trained etiquette and protocol
instructors. She had the foresight in 1986 to conduct research that
revealed a basic lack of polish in relatively seasoned professionals
and executives. Additionally, there was an expanding global economy
that required social skills as a cornerstone of international
business. Armed with more than three decades of firsthand experience
teaching etiquette and protocol, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a
vision, she shaped the growth of the industry. The Protocol School of
Washington® is the standard by which others in the industry are
judged. Today, Pamela Eyring, the school’s owner and director,
continues to build upon the founder’s high quality principles and
performance by providing continuous research and educational
development for protocol and etiquette professionals worldwide.
Leveraging more than two decades of protocol, education and training
skills, she blends the two career fields to advance education
standards for the rapidly expanding protocol and etiquette industry.
Ms. Eyring continues a strong presence on the speaker’s circuit where
she shares her expertise with professionals who desire to promote a
higher level of business intelligence. What is The Protocol School of
Washington®’s formula for success? A commitment to quality. The
mission of The Protocol School of Washington® is to provide
contemporary, universally accepted protocol and etiquette trainings in
the highest professional manner.
The Etiquette and
Leadership Institute continues The Protocol School of Washington®’s
youth curriculum, “Train To Be A Children’s Etiquette Consultant.” The
owners, Debra Lassiter, Cindy Haygood, and April McLean have added
