Etiquette is a must, particularly while traveling. Certified etiquette consultant Lisa Grotts tells us what's proper and what's not in her new book, A Traveler's Passport to Etiquette.
To celebrate Ms. Grotts' first published book a soiree was held in her honor on October 15 at Montblanc in downtown San Francisco. Attendees had the opportunity to visit with the author, purchase advanced copies of the book and have their copy signed by Ms. Grotts. Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown made an appearance commenting that he never knew so much about packing for a trip until he read this book. Intended for the well-traveled and novice alike, A Traveler's Passport to Etiquette emphasizes the golden rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Ms. Grotts conducts seminars in the areas of business and social etiquette and is the founder and director of The AML Group, a certified protocol and etiquette consultancy. She believes the world is separated by two kinds of people - those who exhibit good manners and those who don't. By expanding her expertise into a book, Ms. Grotts hopes to teach good manners to travelers around the world. And we all thank her for that!
