Etiquette Expert Diane Gottsman travels nationally teaching corporations and universities in the finer points of etiquette. Diane is the owner of The Protocol School of Texas and has written a book titled Pearls of Polish: Graceful Solutions to Everyday Etiquette Dilemmas, which is now in its second printing. Diane also recently launched her own line of stationery, “Sincerely Yours.”
Diane is the resident etiquette expert on SA Living, an NBC television affiliate. She is routinely quoted in national media outlets such as Real Simple, HGTV Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, the New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post, Bloomberg Business Week, U.S. News & World Report, CBS Money Watch, Kiplinger’s and Forbes. The latter publication named her blog one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women.”

She enjoys teaching one of her favorite sessions, “Dining Etiquette,” on university campuses including Rice, Southwestern, The University of Texas, Texas A&M, Georgetown, University of St. Thomas and Concordia. Diane has taught everyone from kindergarten students to rocket scientists.
Along with fellow etiquette expert Thomas Farley (a.k.a. “Mister Manners”), she also created Thanksgiving Unplugged–a nationwide awareness campaign that encourages Americans to disconnect from their electronics on Thanksgiving as a means of reconnecting with family, friends and, of course, food!
