DIPLOMACY AND PROTOCOL - HOW TO HANDLE VIPS
PR practitioners and event organisers are sometimes at a loss on what to do with VIPs, including government ministers and officials, and foreign guests. The greatest fear is over little things such as where the VIP should sit, what he eats, and how we should address the VIP.

Protocol guides how an activity should be performed, especially in the field of diplomacy.  Protocols are often unwritten guidelines. Protocols specify the proper and generally-accepted behavior in matters of state and diplomacy, such as showing appropriate respect to a VIP.  Protocol will vary from one society to another. It changes as times change. The fanfare of bygone years has yielded to pragmatism. However, there are some fundamental principles which have not changed. This workshop is aimed at giving PR practitioners and event organisers an opportunity to learn about handling VIPs, special guests, and foreign guests, and organising various official events. It will be an interactive session with group discussions, role plays and group exercises.
