Today started with the principles of protocol: préséance (rank) and the applications. Gilbert Monod de Froideville gave a lecture about seating arrangements, flag protocol and greeting procedures. This was continued by Isabel Amaral who talked about international protocol.
The fourth teacher today was stage manager Rebecca Rebecca Anna van Leeuwen, an expert in personal presentation and non-verbal communication. Tomorrow Rebecca will coach the participants in giving a speech.
