Intercultural Protocol Training

Intercultural Protocol Training

Global relationships start here.

Fort Worth Sister Cities International provides an invaluable service through our protocol training workshops. While other organizations may only focus on a single need (business etiquette, for example), our holistic approach to international relations allows for a more comprehensive approach that situates protocol training in the context of cultural competency.

This training program covers a variety of topics, including:

  • Language challenges (speaking, listening, writing)
  • Greeting foreign customers / forms of address
  • Virtual communication
  • Conversation topics to avoid
  • Gift giving around the world
  • Gesturing
  • Dining etiquette and dining styles
  • Women doing business abroad
  • Business etiquette and protocol
  • Societal norms
  • Foods to avoid for religious or cultural reasons
  • How religion affects culture / business dealings

To book FWSCI for a protocol need, contact Mae Ferguson.
