Protocol Partners-Washington Center for Protocol Selected by The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean to Launch New Seminar

Seminar Titled: Protocol and Diplomatic Law: Rules and Procedures

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - August 21, 2014) - Protocol Partners-Washington Center for Protocol (Washington, D.C.) was invited to join a collaboration with The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean, The University of the West Indies (UWI), and The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the development and delivery of a training module entitled "Protocol and Diplomatic Law: Rules and Procedures." Focusing on diplomatic protocol as a means to establish, maintain, and enhance relationships, the goal of the training was to educate current and prospective diplomats and others engaged in international relations and international business in the essentials of protocol, the basics of diplomatic law, relevant codes of conduct and business etiquette, and internationally accepted "best practices" in the field.

Launched in July 2014, The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean, a global academy for Caribbean Diplomacy and the first of its kind in the region, seeks to provide learning and training to a cross-section of target groups and beneficiaries involved in international cooperation negotiations and transactions within the CARICOM region and beyond. It is a joint initiative of UWI and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.

"We understand that hearts and minds are won by how we shake hands, bow, or otherwise show respect to our international guests. Knowing the right way to communicate our respect matters, and that is why we engaged the respected leaders in the field of protocol education, Protocol Partners-Washington Center for Protocol, to launch this important initiative," stated Debra Coryat-Patton, Coordinator, The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean. "Our Academy was founded on the belief that the future generation of diplomats in this region can compete with any other diplomats from any part of the globe."

During the period 23 June to 4 July, founding partner, Gary Biggs, and senior associate, Lawrence Dunham, delivered two, one-week training modules at the Academy's St. Augustine campus to over 120 attendees representing a cross-section from both the public and private sectors. Senior government and international officials were present to support and participate in a number of the module's sessions.

The course examined principles, traditions and best practices of protocol and global business etiquette and how they relate to the conduct of diplomacy, international business and other transactions involving international participants. The course provided participants with an understanding of protocol fundamentals such as order of precedence, titles and forms of address, position of honor, as well as knowledge to avoid professional and diplomatic pitfalls. Plans are underway to offer the course again at the St. Augustine campus in Port of Spain and at other UWI campuses throughout the Caribbean.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
