Expat Club would like to invite you for a professional workshop on protocol. Learn from Protocolbureau, Europe’s leading protocol expert, how to use modern protocol management. This workshop will focus on important stakeholders and other VIP’s. In this workshop protocol is used to manage an important visit; the development of a suitable programme and guest list, the choice of the right gifts, the duties of the host(ess), greeting procedures, the speech, flags, signing ceremonies and seating arrangements.
The first part of the workshop will be a recap of the workshop of 20 November; the basics of protocol. In the second part, we will ask you to use modern protocol management to develop the outlines of the important visit. Please contact us if you joined the earlier workshop, so you will receive a discount of €15.
This workshop will give you an insight in how high-level visits of dignitaries and other VIP’s are managed by government organisations as well as in the corporate world. You will be able to practice your insights in a real-life business case. This workshop is from the ‘Three-day Masterclass in Modern Protocol’, Protocolbureau’s training programme in Brussels that is followed by professionals from all over the world. The tutor of the workshop is Jean Paul Wijers, the founder of Protocolbureau who has over 25 years of experience with the management of high-level visits among others at the Royal Wedding of the Dutch King and Queen, the World Press Photo Awards Show and 100 Years Peace Palace.
You must pre-book a ticket for this event. Until 1 week before tickets are €35 in the early-bird offer. After that the tickets are €45. If you cannot come anymore, you can cancel up to 24 hours in advance for a full refund. Tickets at the door cost €50.
