A word from the founder

For over 50 years I have been studying the field of protocol, both in the governmental and private sectors. Protocol International arise from this study and aims to serve as a cornerstone, to educate and inspire generations to come with professional protocol and etiquette.

Although the roots of protocol are traditional, it is an evolving practice and we strive to adapt and grow with the clients we serve.

I am convinced that anyone seeking professional advice or  training in protocol can find their solutions within our services and publications.
