Get Paid to Give Etiquette Advice

Imagine having a rewarding high-paying job that lets you share your love of good manners with adults, children and companies. Welcome to the world of etiquette consulting!

The New York Times recently reported that etiquette consulting is a booming industry. From the corporate world to the school classroom, etiquette training programs are in tremendous demand.

As an etiquette consultant, you can teach people the etiquette skills they need to succeed in business and in life. They will  know the right thing to say or do courtesy of you

Etiquette consultants have many career options. You could specialize in coaching adults or children on proper etiquette. For example, with your help, the sloppy eater who used to offend people could be transformed into the charming gentleman who everyone wants to invite to dinner. 

While many individuals hire etiquette consultants, you might also be hired by corporate clients. For example, a company might hire you to help a young manager learn proper business etiquette or teach a senior executive to make a good impression meeting with clients from different countries. 

Etiquette consultants are also paid up to thousands of dollars a day to present training programs (seminars or workshops) on topics related to etiquette. For example you might teach telephone etiquette to customer service staff.

As an etiquette consultant you might offer coaching or training programs in all areas of etiquette or you could choose to specialize in an area such as:

  • Business etiquette (or corporate etiquette)
  • Communication etiquette
  • Dining etiquette
  • International etiquette (or international protocol)
  • Social etiquette
  • Wedding etiquette
  • Children's etiquette (or etiquette for young people)
As long as you have the desire, you can become an etiquette consultant. No special education or experience is necessary to break into this career and succeed.

Business Etiquette
As a business etiquette consultant you will teach people how to behave in business settings. Business etiquette covers a variety of areas such as meetings, email, introductions, handshakes, business cards, and corporate gift giving. You might offer training in one specific topic such as telephone etiquette or you may design an entire program to build a corporate image. (Also known as corporate etiquette.)

Children's Etiquette
As an etiquette consultant you can share your love of good manners with children. Your subject matter and style of teaching must be geared towards the age of the children you are working with, which may range from pre-schoolers to high school seniors. Topics might include addressing adults, introducing friends, table manners, thank you notes and talking on the telephone. (Also known as etiquette for young people.)

Communication Etiquette
This area of etiquette covers communication in business and social settings. If you choose to specialize in communication etiquette, you may teach people about conversation skills, telephone etiquette, email etiquette, thank you notes, making introductions, and other aspects of interpersonal communication.

Dining Etiquette
Which fork goes with the salad and why do I have so many spoons? Which glass is for water and which one is for wine? These are some of the questions you'll hear about dining etiquette. This type of training is often done "hands-on" in a dining environment, so clients can learn by doing. With your help, the sloppy eater who offended those around him can be transformed into the charming gentleman who everyone wants to invite to dinner.

International Protocol
This etiquette area covers how to interact with people from foreign countries. According to Wordnet, protocol means "forms of ceremony and etiquette observed by diplomats and heads of state." However, protocol is used by all kinds of people doing business overseas or hosting a guest from another country. If you decide to teach international protocol, you may cover status and forms of address, proper attire, making introductions, gift giving, dining customs, and other aspects of doing business or interacting with people from other cultures. (Also known as international etiquette.)

Social Etiquette
Social etiquette involves etiquette in social situations. As an etiquette consultant specializing in social etiquette you could advise people how to behave at social gatherings, such as dinners and parties. Topics may include being a good host, being a polite guest, making toasts, and invitations. You might also give advice about wedding etiquette including: who pays for what, seating arrangements, asking for gifts, and thank yous.
