Lisa Gaché, Founder & CEO
Lisa Gaché, Founder and CEO of Beverly Hills Manners, is a nationally recognized etiquette coach and lifestyle expert. She provides practical solutions for modern day living and helps clients improve social skills and enhance lives, both personally and professionally.
Based in Los Angeles, she has become the credible "go-to" resource for the media and entertainment community, advising on the “how-to’s” of good manners – from dining with decorum and red carpet etiquette to managing one’s digital footprint and executing a world class handshake. Lisa’s ability to communicate key messages and valuable insights make her a desirable voice for corporate partnerships, spokesperson opportunities, and as a consultant for brands. With gentle humor and a refreshing no-nonsense delivery, she teaches that manners are not about achieving perfection, but maintaining respect, and delivers tips, tools and guidance for every person in every situation.
Ms. Gaché has presented her etiquette programming and expertise for a variety of high profile brands including Mattel, Tiffany & Co., Burberry, TJX Companies, American Girl, Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic, Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, and the Hotel Bel-Air, as well as Oscar®-winning celebrities.
Featured on national television (The Today Show, Access Hollywood, Dr. Phil) and print media (USA Today, New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter, The Telegraph), Ms. Gaché received her certification as a Corporate Etiquette and International Protocol Consultant from The Protocol School of Washington in 2009. The school is the first and only nationally accredited school to meet the high standards set by the ACCET and the US Department of Education.
In between work engagements, Gaché is an active member of the National Charity League Los Angeles Founder Chapter. She provides etiquette training to countless non-profit organizations including HYPE Los Angeles, P.S. Arts, and Aviva Child & Family Services and is a sought after speaker dispensing practical tools to such organizations as the International Nanny Association and the Epilepsy Foundation. Her expertise led to an opportunity to create an eight-week pilot etiquette program for the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles providing life skills to talented low-income students.
Lisa was featured in the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue 2013 for the release of her hardcover book, 24 Karat Etiquette (Skyhorse Publishing).
