A merge of world cultures, Bonnie spent her childhood learning the meaning of etiquette in Taiwan, the United States and Singapore. From the start, she knew the importance of integrating yourself with new cultures and customs. Her multicultural experience reveals how practicing etiquette is beyond being a gracious host — it’s also empowering yourself with knowledge and skills that inspire a genuine connection with others.
Rather than following a set of rules, Bonnie wants to illustrate that etiquette is about being a more sophisticated version of yourself. With her background and experience in cross-cultural communications, Bonnie provides a unique and modern approach to traditional etiquette.
Bonnie is a consultant specializing in social and business etiquette and protocol. She attended the esteemed Institut Villa Pierrefeu finishing school in Glion, Switzerland and Institute Sarita finishing school in Beijing, China. She has been formally trained in Continental European, British, American, and Chinese etiquette.
Bonnie resides between Los Angeles and San Francisco with her partner and their rescued husky. She is available to travel nationally and internationally for consulting and speaking engagements.
