Diplomacy and Business Etiquette

The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean rolled out its first Summer Executive Programme for Young Professionals, “Protocol, Diplomacy and Business Etiquette 101,” in two consecutive sessions in early June 2017. In total, 63 professionals were trained from varying backgrounds, including participants from State agencies and the private sector. Participants also came from Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda. The Programme was facilitated by Gail Guy, a retired diplomat and protocol consultant who took participants through lectures and practical exercises on the fundamentals and elements of diplomatic protocol, state protocol, business etiquette, event planning, international law and national identity guidelines among other pertinent themes.
