“Dixie Duffey offers a unique perspective on how to make a lasting impression in a faceless business workplace often with an invisible customer. The business world today has changed immensely with fewer face-to-face meetings and a breakneck pace allowed by technology, a critical factor that will never change is business professionalism. Her ability to bring a fresh approach to age-old, but important business protocol, (whether in this country or on a global stage) is not only practical, but imperative. Business acumen coupled with professional conduct is a winning combination in my book.”
“I utilized Protocol International to prepare for a business trip to multiple
Eastern countries. It was easy to complete and fit into my busy schedule.
Dixie’s attention to detail and information was spot-on. I felt more confident, seeing the cues from my hosts and knowing that I was representing myself and my company well. The result has been lasting international friendships and profitable business ventures. Dixie truly knows her craft and has perfected the art!”
