Diddy Hires Etiquette Coach for Bad Boy Staffers

Diddy minds his Ps and Qs. He thanked fans after his Diddy-Dirty Money album ‘Last Train to Paris’ debuted at No. 7, and uses the word “please” whenever soliciting a favor. Now, the Bad Boy Entertainment CEO is making sure his fellow workers follow suit.

Page Six reported that Diddy hired etiquette coach Dawn Bryan to polish new staffers’ manners, especially when it comes to their interactions at business dinners and conduct overseas. Bryan is the author of ‘The Art and Etiquette of Gift Giving’ and specializes in business protocol. Bad Boy staffers were instructed on the right way to hold chopsticks and how to present a business card in Japan, as well as how to select a wine, hold a wine glass and eat caviar. Also addressed was proper gift giving in the business environment.

A source told the paper that the training was “a protocol for new hires.” But we’re thinking Diddy just wants to take that ol’ Grey Poupon tagline into the 21st century: ‘Pardon me, do you have any Ciroc?”
