Adrienne Barker    

International Etiquette and Protocol Educator along with Presenter of Soft Skills business topics. Business English Instructor. Customer Service Training. Custom programs available

I have grown up in my family business and appreciate all the lessons I learned from my parents, coworkers, our clients, and our vendors. I have had the privilege of working in every department and making sure I understood all parts of the company. In the past few years, I have realized that my passion is not just in sales, but in sharing the knowledge, I have acquired with other salespeople. I was equally intrigued with etiquette and how little I knew about this subject. I decided to become an educator/facilitator/presenter for business. I attended the Protocol School of Washington, where I became certified as an International Etiquette and Protocol Consultant. I have invested time and money into having 99% of most soft skills business topic presentations. I have a variety of content, and each program includes workbooks, worksheets, and an interactive formula to make learning fun, and remembering easy.

I have attended three different yearlong leadership academy and programs. I have served on a variety of boards and have served on many committees. I have acted as Cubmaster to 75 boys and Chairwoman of the Celebration Area Council, bringing businesses together. My lessons of life are stories of strength. I am a Proud Certified SCORE Mentor
