Etiquette Protocol

Advanced Protocol: Outclass the Competition Etiquette Seminar I

The Advanced Protocol: Outclass the Competition workshop and luncheon is led by Kay Leonard, Chief of Protocol, Joint Special Operations University (JSOU).

Sometimes students find themselves in unfamiliar or challenging social situations, juggling demands of making conversation, facilitating introductions, or managing many pieces of flatware during a meal. In her workshop, Ms. Leonard provides the same training received by general officers in all branches of the military to help participants develop confidence and poise in navigating professional and social environments, including meals and receptions. The experiential workshop portion focuses on protocol and business etiquette. After the workshop, a full-course luncheon provides students an opportunity to practice formal dining etiquette.

Students who have interviewed for major national fellowship competitions, exciting professional positions, and challenging graduate opportunities believe this training is invaluable.

This workshop is offered annually at the end of January and is open to undergraduates, graduates, and staff/faculty across NC State University. Invitations are offered through each college and unit across campus. If you wish to attend, please contact Dr. Debbie Acker (dlreno@ncsu.edu). Registration is required.

We had a packed last day in London! Half of us visited the @zsllondonzoo and got a behind the scenes tour from alumna Dr. Guthrie. Others visited @RCT Windsor Castle and then we wrapped at @TheLondonEye with gorgeous views. It has been a life changing and transformative week! pic.twitter.com/w5gVwIkHJx

Today we had the incredible opportunity to visit @UKParliament and meet Lord Chris Smith, MP for 22 yrs and the person responsible for making museums free for all. He was the first MP to come out as gay in 1984. It was a privilege and honor to spend time with him. #SheltonAbroad pic.twitter.com/gz3HAdZV9s
