First impressions are often made within seven seconds of a meeting and are difficult if not impossible to change. This course helps you leave a great first impression. The course addresses how to deal with others in a business setting, taking into account differences in culture and region. Since business is often conducted over lunch or dinner, dining skills can also impact someone’s opinion of you as a potential business partner.

This course will give you tips on how to apply proper manners and business etiquette in many different settings. Many diplomatic 'incidents' occur due to the personnel's lack of understanding of various protocol standards. In this course, we introduce the international rules of protocol that need to be implemented during formal occasions and visits.

Course Methodology

The workshop is designed to be interactive and participatory and includes various pedagogical tools to enable the participants to operate effectively and efficiently in a multifunctional environment. The course is built on four pedagogical pillars: concept learning (lectures and presentations), role-playing (group exercises), experience sharing (roundtable discussions) and exposure to real-world problems and policy choices confronting delegates.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how to behave correctly in both business and social situations
