International protocol seminar scheduled
Northern Crops Institute will sponsor a daylong seminar, “Protocol: Your Vital Tool in International Business,” on Monday, Feb. 9, at the Fargo Holiday Inn.
The seminar is designed for business people who communicate, negotiate and socialize in the global marketplace. Topics include many areas of international protocol, such as how to present a business card, make introductions, present gifts and appreciate cultural differences. Electronic communications and practical travel tips also will be discussed. During a four-course noon luncheon, participants will practice appropriate table etiquette for a formal meal. A panel of regional international business leaders also will share their experiences about doing business in different regions of the world.
Pat Berglund, the institute’s former director and a corporate etiquette and international protocol consultant, will lead the seminar. Certified by The Protocol School of Washington, Berglund has international experience in Asia, Central America, South America, Africa and Europe.
The deadline for registration is Feb. 2. The $100 tuition includes an illustrated workbook and the luncheon. Cancellations received after the deadline will be assessed a 10 percent service fee.
