  10. Protocol is around us and evolving all the time as the global world becomes a village.  In certain situations it is essential to master certain local traditions and customs so to know what to do, but more importantly what not to do.  You need to avoid sensitive issues or making blunders that could cause disastrous diplomatic incidents.

  11. Protocol means being meticulous with details and using discipline to adhere to planning schedules.  But at the same time, it entails a need to anticipate Plan B and C in the case of last minute changes and allowing for a grand dose of flexibility.

Mastering precedence issues along with official table and seating plans, preparing official introductions and even positioning flags, are things that our experts manage on a daily basis.  Whether it be around international conferences, summits, official visits, economic missions or any other top level event, it requires specialist wisdom and understanding of the protocol golden rules. The GDC team proposes a concise methodology that follows procedures precisely but allows for flexibility and adaptability when and where it is considered inevitable.  This know-how is at your disposal to use as you deem necessary.
