Have you ever wondered how the President of the United States avoids embarrassing cultural blunders when visiting with heads of state from around the world? How does he know the proper greeting, what gift to give, how to address the person, and where everyone should sit around the table? Well, it's thanks to the hard work of his Protocol Officers!
In this session we'll explore the world of international protocol services and the comical stories of cultural misunderstandings that happen on the job.
We'll hear from presenters Beth Huddleston, Dallas Chief of Protocol, and Julianna Allen, Manager of Protocol Services for the City of Dallas.
Beth Huddleston is the executive vice president of the World Affairs Council and serves as chief of protocol for the City of Dallas through a partnership program between the City and the World Affairs Council since March of 2003. In this capacity, she supervises Dallas Sister Cities, the International Visitor Leadership Program and the International Education Initiative.
Beth is currently on the board of the Global Ties-US, a national network of program agencies and 95 community-based organizations that offer professional programs, cultural activities and home hospitality to international leaders visiting the US through the US Department of State.
Beth earned a B.A. in Spanish and English Literature from Vanderbilt University and a M.A. in Latin American Studies from Georgetown University. She speaks Spanish and over the years she has traveled for business and pleasure to 62 countries.
Julianna Allen joined the World Affairs Council in December 2015. Most recently, she worked as an events coordinator for the National Math and Science Initiative in Dallas and in visitor services at the George W. Bush Presidential Center. She graduated from Baylor University in 2012 with dual majors of International Business and Marketing. Her studies took her to London, England as part of the Baylor Great Britain program in the summer of 2010. She has a passion for world cultures, loves to travel and enjoys reading and the arts.

Why we record sessions?
We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
