To learn more about Dorothea Johnson, please visit the official website.

Ms. Johnson was the first etiquette expert to recognize a need for professionally trained and certified etiquette and protocol instructors. She had the foresight in 1986 to conduct research which revealed a basic lack of polish in relatively seasoned professionals and executives. There was also an expanding global economy that required social skills as a cornerstone of international business. 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 through The Protocol School of Washington.
