Modern protocol requires more than just common sense and concentration. It demands knowledge and skills in order to get to grips with the complexity of the challenge. If an event is to be successful, professional hosting skills are required. The correct application of protocol is essential in this respect.

The Institute of Protocol The Hague trains course participants and students to be protocol professionals. After completing the course you will be equipped to meet the challenges of complex protocol management.

Protocol is often regarded as a form of tiresome or pretentious frippery, whereas in reality it is all about finding an internationally accepted method for regulating all kinds of situations that occur in practice. For example:
How should you conduct yourself correctly abroad, taking account of cultural differences?
How should you organise a farewell reception?
How should you avoid sensitivities in placing guests?
What is the right order of precedence and which guests rank most highly?
How are ushers used to receive and place guests?
To what type of meeting is protocol applicable and how are these meetings organised?
