Sensible Strategies to Broaden Your Global Awareness

By now it’s no secret that competition in today’s international business arena has grown by leaps and bounds, making it imperative that the protocol skills required to compete effectively be developed and employed. Protocol is no longer relegated to the international diplomatic community alone. A knowledge of business protocol is necessary for anyone engaged in global business and exchange. We must be an envoy for the firm we represent, equipped with a knowledge and understanding of the business and social customs of the persons with whom we are negotiating. It is this know-how that will bring success.
