The British Protocol Academy was born out of my upbringing from a humble home, like they say, “charity begins at home”, my late mother, “Lady Joanna”, was an influence in my life and she instilled this mantra into myself and my siblings, a simple basic manner like saying thank you or no thank you, please, pardon, these basic principles mould you to who you become as a person.
The sense of etiquette came back to reality and thus The British Protocol Academy was born. It is my heartful delight and the joy to see that we can practice just a basic manner every day in our lives.
