Lessons in Etiquette w/ Duchess of Decorum Pattie Ehsaei
October 5, 2021
Hosted by Chris Meek
Pattie Ehsaei provides her more than 400,000 followers on TikTok (“thesifactor”) with tips and tricks for social and workplace etiquette, along with financial literacy, and now she’s providing a crash course on her lessons in etiquette to the Next Steps Forward audience. Having established herself as an expert of “P’s and Q’s,” her followers look to her to help answer their questions on topics ranging from how to make and keep a budget to guidance on what the little fork is used for. Program host Chris Meek sits down with the modern day Emily Post to discuss her etiquette tips, including proper table manners, job and workplace etiquette, financial success, and relationship tips. Pattie is also a fierce advocate for empowering women and grounds her advice in wanting all women to succeed on their respective paths. Women of all ages, backgrounds and experiences will take to Pattie’s unique manner of imparting the rules of social conventions and etiquette. Having come to the United States as a young girl without speaking English and growing up less than affluent, Pattie will provide an inside look into how she cultivated her knowledge despite her background and honed her skills and passion to inspire other women to cultivate the same knowledge and empowerment to ultimately be their best selves.

Chris Meek believes in the American spirit of individual empowerment and service to others, especially those who have sacrificed for our freedoms. As someone who lived through the horrors of Ground Zero on 9/11, Chris had no way home but to join others as they put one foot in front of the other to make their way forward. Since that day, Chris has committed himself to empowering and motivating fellow Americans to keep taking steps forward, no matter what life throws their way.
Chris has spent the last decade serving as the co-founder and chairman of the national nonprofit SoldierStrong, which is dedicated to helping military veterans take their next steps forward. SoldierStrong carries out its mission by providing revolutionary medical technology to VA medical centers, including exoskeleton suits to help paralyzed veterans walk again and virtual reality equipment to help treat post-traumatic stress.
He also serves as an advisor on the President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End a National Tragedy of Suicide (PREVENTS) task force. In this role, he shares a responsibility to raise awareness about mental health, facilitate research and define a plan to prevent suicide. In 2020, Chris launched ReachStrong, a nonprofit aimed at empowering all Americans to care for their overall well-being. Chris is also a financial services executive at S and P Global, Inc, in New York City. He and his wife, Christine, have three children.
