Dubai, September 23, 2012
Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC) last week hosted a new session of the Network Majlis with Patricia González Cobos, the managing director of Bonnétiquette for leading businesswomen in the UAE.
Cobos conducted a presentation on “The Art of Networking” wherein she discussed how etiquette and protocol can serve as strategic assets for business organizations.
Cobos, a widely acclaimed independent corporate etiquette and international protocol consultant, provided practical tips and advice on creating a positive first impression, understanding body language in a networking event and networking etiquette.
She explained that offering etiquette and protocol training and personal development at the highest professional level were key tools to improve both individual and corporate images.
Addressing the gathering at the Network Majlis in the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Cobos also talked about her vision to refine the world by promoting civility, diplomacy and tactfulness.
"In many ways Dubai has served as a model society in the continuing pursuit of sustainable growth and development in the Arab world. In this regard, DBWC will play a crucial role in further enhancing the reputation of Dubai and contributing to its economic growth by empowering women to be more productive and participative members of the society," he noted.
DBWC president Raja Al Gurg pointed out that top-quality training, consulting and coaching would certainly go a long way in boosting the confidence and reinforcing the competencies of businesswomen in Dubai.-TradeArabia News Service
