International Protocol Certification Programs


Providing business solutions via the Web.

Business has become global. Small entrepreneurial start-ups as well as Fortune 100 companies find that their customer base is scattered around the world. Yet, less that 25% of American business ventures overseas succeed because companies don't do their homework and prepare their corporate emissaries prior to embarking on those all-important international negotiations.
