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.

“Everybody can be great ... because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. #MLKDay
