WHO IS LYNDA RODRIGUEZ?

Dominican. Creator of modern workshops about Etiquette, Protocol, and Leadership taught in the United States, Spain and Latin America. Founder of "Taller de Lynda Rodríguez Internacional: Etiquette, Protocol and Personal Development".

Desde pequeña se inclinó por conocer nuevas culturas y viajar a distintos países. Amante del protocolo internacional y las buenas formas, estudió Protocolo y Educación Social porque le apasiona el tema, pero no para dedicarse a ello.

For as long as she can remember, she has been attracted to hospitality, tourism and communication. Her family owns a chain of television channels and radio stations in the northern region of the Dominican Republic, which led her to venture into media at an early age to learn about the industry and to complement her training and to acquire professional skills.

Es licenciada en Publicidad, y estudió Comunicación en España. Cuando regresó a su país, luego de estudiar en Estados Unidos, Europa y Asia, quiso transmitirle a su hermanita menor, Paloma y a sus amigas (de 15 años en ese momento), sus conocimientos y experiencias personales internacionales para que puedan adaptarse culturalmente a distintos ambientes y países.

Así inició "El Taller". Por recomendación de los propios padres del primer curso, decidió impartir un segundo. Para su sorpresa, por las buenas referencias del primer taller, se inscribieron 55 estudiantes en el segundo curso. Lo que inició, en principio, como un hobbie, se convirtió rápidamente en una empresa personal.

To date, more than 5,000 students have attended her classes and she has taught workshops internationally from the United States, Guatemala, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Spain and Mexico. Today, the workshops are targeted for women, men, children and companies.

Además, realiza trabajos de voluntariado y talleres comunitarios dándole inclusión a hogares de niños huérfanos y fundaciones.
