Diplo Lecturer Olaph Terribile assisted by Mary Murphy gave a four-day workshop to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of the Republic of Moldova focusing on Diplomatic Protocol and Etiquette.
Covering everything from the Order of Precedence to the proper handling of business cards, the workshop also highlighted important cultural differences that are equally applicable to both the business and the diplomatic world. Correct table settings, the organisation of press conferences and state visits, and the sending of diplomatic communications were all discussed at length.
The workshop was very interactive with plenty of opportunity for participants to role play and to ask specific questions about topics of interest to them. The information offered during the four days focused on best practices from which the ministry can choose what will work best in Moldova. Diplo was contracted by the UNDP to develop and deliver this workshop.
