Overview
In today’s business environment, it is vitally important to be aware of business
protocol, corporate courtesy and good business etiquette, whilst keeping the need
to understand and appreciate cultural differences in mind. A lack of awareness or
appreciation for social protocols and etiquette can undermine effective working
relationships, as it may be construed as rudeness, disrespect or an intolerance of
people of different cultures and persuasions.
This two-day interactive and dynamic course introduces candidates to the features of
social protocols and etiquette in the workplace, giving them an advantage in every
business encounter.
