“Embracing the mission of Diplomacy and Protocol”

Globalization is changing the world in every aspect. Traditional industrial economies are transforming into entrepreneurial economies.

There is a need for leaders, entrepreneurs, directors, managers, government officials, consultants, and executives with global mindset skills.

Local companies are becoming international and must deal, directly or indirectly, with foreign business partners. They must cooperate with international clients, colleagues, stakeholders, agents, employees, etc. There is a need for knowledge of protocol and soft diplomacy skills.

In the entrepreneurial economy, companies are becoming smaller, international, less hierarchical, and are driven by the abilities of executives to communicate, collaborate, and abilities for co-creation.
