According to a poll by the Center for Professional Excellence at York College of Pennsylvania, "appearance" ranked second only to "communication skills" when respondents named qualities most often associated with professionalism.

She was the Chief of Protocol at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. I was a consultant in a high-end designer clothing store at the time. Pamela stepped into my life as a client. How lucky was I? For years she would tell me about these wonderful etiquette and protocol seminars that she would present all over the world. To say the least, I was intrigued. When Ms. Eyring bought the business, the Protocol School of Washington, I knew I wanted to make a huge life change! It was time — I needed a career that was challenging, interesting, that would help others and, yes, pay more!  Read more
