In today’s global arena, an understanding of proper protocol is in high-demand. Diplomacy, etiquette and protocol knowledge is a form of business intelligence that has created an unprecedented demand for expert training and guidance. Protocol is an important part of diplomatic practice linked with history, royalty, religion, culture and language.
Business in the 21st century is global and working people of all nationalities and cultures are brought into contact with one another. Different countries, states and institutions have different rules about acceptable behavior and ignorance of these rules leads to unnecessary misunderstandings and conflicts.
Protocol involves etiquette on a local and international scale, and the practice of good manners on a daily basis. It evolved as a result of old traditions, when in the early days of civilisation hospitality was extended to an arriving guest. Today it is particularly important because it not only covers the ceremonial rules that are followed during official functions and how to behave on these special occasions, but it also provides a set of established rules of courteousness that are to be respected in society.
