This (seminar) was a summary of practical strategies that every business professional should know.
Trainee (or Participant) feedback is critical to the success of any program. It tells us where the training is strong, what areas need to be enhanced, and how we can further develop the training to meet the needs of an ever-changing business community.
Global Protocol Academy Facilitator Training Program was a worthy and valuable investment, both professionally and personally. Gloria Petersen is energy personified; she is a guru of professional protocol and dining etiquette! Training sessions are packed with the most current information and newly accepted trends, as well as their historical evolution. From learning how to properly and confidently “work” a room at networking events and planning successful business and social events, to how to recognize table settings and choose the right utensils for each course, Gloria covers it all and makes it easy for her trainees to take it all with them by providing easy-to-follow guidebooks, slideshows, and handout materials. In this environment of increasingly individualistic societies, this training is a must for those who wish to bring a higher level of consideration and decorum to our world.
This training is not just about principles; nor is it just about rules. The training takes a principles with rules approach combined with a “town hall” attitude.
This training will help me develop a stronger sense of confidence in my personal social life and my professional career as a medical professional.
