    The 15th iteration of the DAOC online training module on Protocol and Diplomacy: A Guide for the Modern Professional

    “Protocol and Diplomacy: A Guide for the Modern Professional' provided me an opportunity to refine my skills in Protocol and become more efficient and professional in the execution of my duties. I enjoyed being in the company of other protocol professionals and I valued the shared experiences and lessons. I especially appreciated the career lessons and generous advice shared by the round table guests and the facilitators- the 'veterans'.”

    The 16th iteration of the DAOC Online training module Protocol and Diplomacy: A Guide for the Modern Professional

    “The training module was an invaluable learning experience for me as it further enhanced my knowledge and skills as a Foreign Service Officer. The comprehensive approach to protocol and diplomacy reaffirmed existing principles of the Foreign Service, and challenged my thinking on what being a modern professional in foreign affairs entails. The course exceeded my expectations, in particular because the facilitators had a wealth of knowledge that was willingly shared from their personal experiences in international relations. I truly enjoyed my time with DAOC, and I recommend this course for any individual who is interested in expanding their knowledge on protocol and diplomacy.”
