- (1888PressRelease) April 21, 2011 - Dallas, TX - Author, speaker and passionate about teaching others to project their most positive image, Deborah King is a certified image professional and active in the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI), where she serves on their high-profile Civility Counts Project. She is president of Final Touch Finishing School, Inc. which she founded in Seattle and is co-founder of Global Protocol, Etiquette and Civility Academy in Dallas.
In The Power of Civility--Top Experts Reveal the Secrets of Social Capital, she is one of 18 expert authors being featured. The book's release coincides with May as International Civility Awareness Month. This designation officially appears in Chase's Calendar of Events--The Ultimate Go-to-Guide for Special Days, Weeks and Months.
"My chapter focus is on Civility Begins at Home," states King. "Manners begin in the home. It is responsibility of the parents, not only to make their children the best academically or athletically, but also every parent needs to raise children to be healthy, productive members of society." She cites basketball phenomenon Michael Jordan's great athletic abilities. "He was great because he practiced and internalized the game to the point that he knew instinctively what to do in any situation on the court. For manners and civility to become truly useful, they must be first learned, then practiced and finally become automatic."
As a member of AICI's Civility Counts Project, King heads up a global effort to obtain Civility Proclamations from private business and professional organizations to leading members of government. "This is a grassroots movement to raise awareness of civility one city, county, state and nation at a time. In its second year, the proclamations obtained in 2011 will be on display at the AICI Annual Conference being held in Orlando, FL. from Thursday, May 19 to Sunday, May 22."
