Testimonials

Career Advancement 

"I am very grateful for the assistance given to me by Julie, CEO and Founder of the Sydney School of Protocol. Not having completed a Resume or Supporting Statements for a number of years due to the length of time in my current position, I needed these documents to be modernised and revamped. I was very surprised at how quickly Julie turned the provided information around so that it looked very professional, easy to read yet hit the target for getting the right message across to the reader. Julie also suggested an update on my LinkedIn account and this was completed just as speedily. I have no hesitation in promoting Julie and the Sydney School of Protocol for the quality and professionalism of their service".

Dine like a Diplomat  

"My favourite part of the Dine like a Diplomat Mastery program was setting the tables, knowing how to be seated and tips on the finishing and resting positions. Also the correct etiquette and protocol for seating guests, host/guest duties and the correct way to eat bread. The practical setting of the tables, organising seating arrangements and dining at the table allowed all of us to practice in our dining room. It also gave us the opportunity to ask questions throughout the Mastery session."

Becoming a Corporate Global Citizen

"My training program "Becoming a Corporate Global Citizen" was an absolute paradigm shifting experience. The lessons learned have allowed me to improve and optimize my etiquette skills. It will certainly be an invaluable and competitive edge for me as I promote my personal brand within a professional and casual environment. The professionalism shown by Julie and Simone was a catalyst in my transformation over this supercharged session. The feedback received was immediate and they were on point to correct any discrepancies in my performance. Such feedback will prove valuable as I bring forth the life skills that I have learned into the corporate world."

Global Corporate Citizenship - Sydney Study Tour Program with the University of Adelaide

Sessions with the Sydney School of Protocol gave students a new confidence in their ability to effectively navigate a variety of business situations and relationships. They learned about what it means to be a global corporate citizen, interacting with authenticity and integrity.

“This study tour provides students with knowledge and skills to prepare them for their professional lives and to be competitive in a global corporate environment”. “It undoubtedly helps students stand out with experience and knowledge other students would not have”.
“The study tour has helped in opening my mind up to learning and developing myself, to think about my career as a journey that I am in control of”.
“The program has heightened my self-awareness. My personal presentation has improved enormously after this experience”.
“The biggest skills I’ve developed through this study tour were the transferable skills, communication, teamwork, and networking. Skills we would need in any industry we end up working in”.


“Within a week, I gained a new perspective on my career pathways and learned how I could succeed in the corporate world. I, therefore, feel this tour is valuable for students who want to gain a ‘kick-start’ in their corporate career and learn skills that cannot be taught in a classroom setting.”

- Olivia Mittiga

"On the fifth day of the study tour, we were amazed at how far we had come in such a short period of time. In particular, it was a highlight to see how we all had improved our gravitas and entrance into a room!"
- Tina Tran and Anita Bryant

"By refining our dining etiquette, we open up the opportunity for ourselves to impress potential employers or clients we might find ourselves acquainted with during these occasions. As future business leaders, we want to make sure we use the right tools to make the world our 'oyster'."

I believe this will make social and business situations more enjoyable in the future, and also serve me well from a professional perspective when I re-enter the workforce.

Career Development and Advancement

"Favourite part of the program: 'delving into my leadership style and working on strategies to improve myself both professionally and personally'
Aspects I learned and didn't know before I started the program: 'perception is everything, how to enter a room, introductions the right way and concentrating on behaviours not the person when providing feedback'. 
I feel I got what I needed and more than I expected."
- School Principal


Dine Like a Diplomat

“Thank you, Julie and team, for your expert advice and instruction during our team’s completion of your Dine Like a Diplomat masterclass.  We took away a refinement of critical etiquette skills which are invaluable in working in today’s multicultural business landscape.  A worthwhile investment to ensure the team puts their best foot forward in both business and social contexts.”
- Informatics Sales Manager

Dine Like a Diplomat Family Master Class

"I liked the practical nature of the course. It was not lecturing style but rather question and answer and conversational. Three things I learnt that I didn't know before are: leave the table from the right, enter from the right, don't start bread until entree is served. Now that I have completed the course with my family I feel that my family has a new respect for table manners and etiquette. I would recommend this course to everyone. It should be taught in schools as part of basic social skills. Thank you again for a wonderful experience."
