Workshop on Business Protocol & Etiquette

Etiquette and Protocol are the basis for every person behaviour and image. In today’s world, more than ever, we require skills that will prepare us for all situations and allow us to maintain our grace and respect even in the most trying of times. Etiquette is not just good manners. It’s the right manners at the right time. It’s about making others feel comfortable and giving us the tools to be viewed as trustworthy (yes!) and dignified.

Etiquette and protocol include not just speaking well but dressing appropriately for the occasion. Using communication skills that correctly convey what you want to say, in a polite professional manner is another skill we all need.

In this workshop we will look at the following topics:
  • Etiquette and Basic manners for all occasions:
    • Corporate and personal
    • Greetings and handshakes
    • Introduction
  • The business of the business card
  • Written and Spoken Etiquette- emails, letters and communications
  • Cultural Etiquette- focus on etiquette across cultures and customs
  • Elocution- speaking correctly, clearly and with confidence, presentation skills
  • Image and Grooming: dressing for success and how to create an image and corporate dressing for executives and leaders.
