The Protocol School of the Midwest
Projecting personal power and leadership ability.
Demonstrating elegant ease in social situations.
Building productive, success-focused relationships.
It all comes back to proper etiquette – a lost art and a powerful commodity.
The Protocol School of the Midwest is dedicated to helping you understand it, apply it and harness its potential to showcase your best self and achieve your business and life goals.
Founder Kelly Thedinger is double certified by the prestigious American School of Protocol in Atlanta, GA, to provide both corporate and children’s etiquette education. She thrives on helping her clients increase their competitive edge – with grace.
Deeply involved in the Omaha community, Kelly Thedinger has parlayed a passion for service and the success of others into her dream endeavor, The Protocol School of the Midwest. Her training in etiquette consulting was obtained at the prestigious American School of Protocol in Atlanta, GA. She is double certified to provide both corporate and children’s etiquette education.
Kelly was raised to respect and practice the principles of protocol. She used them to accelerate her career at AT&T and, after moving to Omaha in 1990, a new career in philanthropy. Backed by the poise, confidence and communication skills that an education in protocol provides, Kelly assumed a number of leadership positions, including president of the Joslyn Art Museum Association, chair of the Ak-Sar-Ben Women’s Ball Committee and gala chair of the Omaha Symphony. She continues to serve on the Joslyn Art Museum Board of Governors (a position she has held since 2012) and its Executive and Governance committees.
Kelly’s many other board and chair positions include: Heartland Family Service, Children’s Respite Care Center, Omaha Community Playhouse, CUES/Sacred Heart School, Child Saving Institute and Opera Omaha.
Kelly founded The Protocol School of the Midwest in 2016. She and husband Britt have three children: Britt Jr., Ainsley and William.
