Protocol to Manage Relationships Today

Our vision on protocol is described in this book about
the management of relationships

Protocol to Manage Relationships Today: Modern Relationship Management Based Upon Traditional Values (Amsterdam University Press, 2020) explains the value of protocol, not only for Monarchies or diplomatic institutes but for every non-profit or for-profit organisation. The book presents protocol as a method to build strong authentic networks of reciprocal relationships.

A tailor-made training programme by one of the Protocolbureau experts

Our in-house training programmes are tailored to achieve the desired effect and prepared and coordinated by one of our educational experts. Your goals are translated into a tailor-made proposal.

To bring about a change of attitude or behaviour, these on-site courses may be repeated or organised in modular form. But for a simple transfer of knowledge a one-off talk or session may be sufficient. Training can also be provided ‘on the job’.

We work with the best protocol and relationship management experts from home and abroad. They teach interactively through real-life case studies, role plays, individual and group exercises, discussions and photo/ DVD material. Our courses include class materials, hand-outs, binders and/or literature.

“Protocol is a great tool to manage this exclusive personal attention.”
