Training on Protocol for Leaders


PROTOCOL is the universal language of diplomacy with a set of rules of conduct for those in business, government, politics, and any social gatherings. Leaders  must learn protocol to command more respect and gain a mark of distinction as someone with education, class finesse and skills at handling different types of people and situations. This is applicable for all government officials, diplomats, business people and for all social classes.

To equip you with the right knowledge and skills on this, the Center for Global Best Practices will host a special program entitled, “Best Practices in Business and Government Protocol” on Friday, May 18, 2018 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Mandaluyong City, Philippines.

Some examples of protocol are:
   1) You never sit the president or head of state with his back behind a door for
        safety reasons.

   2) You give the seat of honor to your important guest in riding a car, airplane,
        or other mode of transport.

   3) There is protocol for addressing and meeting public officials and company
        visits.

   4) There is a protocol for spouses, protocol for subordinates, and other
        members of the team.


There is so much to learn about protocol such as protocol during conferences, product launches, ribbon-cutting, company anniversaries, annual stockholders' and board meetings, and in everyday situations such as in entering an elevator, car, airplane when you are with your boss or your subordinates and guests.

In this special training, you will learn of these including the right protocol of introduction, social graces and etiquette. When you want to rub elbows with high-ranking officials, wind and dine with the kings and queens, the royalties and other VIPs, or simply wish to learn how to handle your subordinates, bosses, or your in-laws, it comes handy that you know your protocol. It is also helpful that you have a trained protocol officer, or a protocol manual in your organization to guide you in times when protocol calls for occasion.

This special program will feature Ambassador Jose Abeto Zaide (Ret), the former chief of protocol of the Department of Foreign Affairs.  As a career diplomat, he has 40 years of solid experience in diplomacy and foreign affairs, being assigned as Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and France. 

Another distinguished speaker is Mr. Ruy Y. Moreno, who is presently vice-chairman of the Center for Global Best Practices and concurrently holds the positions of chairman of the Philippine-Myanmar Business Council, executive director of the International Chamber of Commerce Philippines, and director for operations of the private sector-National Competitiveness Council (2008 to present). He brings with him a wealth of experience having been the managing partner in Arthur Andersen Vietnam (1990-2000), the first honorary consul general of the Philippines in Ho Chi Minh City (1995-2000).

Believe it or not, mastery of protocol spells the difference between success and failure in business, in your career and in your personal life. Interested participants are encouraged to avail of the early registration savings and group discounts of 3 or more.  This is a limited-seats-only event and pre-registration is required.

Business Guide to Set Up an Internal Audit System


When do you know it’s time to set an internal audit function for your business? An internal audit group or a person is essential as soon as you start delegating key functions to other people such as finance, cash disbursements and receipts, procurement of inventories, maintenance, and even marketing. Someone has to review if the work is done right and complying with policies and procedures to ensure that no cheating, fraud or abuse is happening.

The Center for Global Best Practices is launching this special program entitled, "Best Business Practices on How to Set Up an Internal Audit System" on Thursday & Friday, May 10 & 11, 2018 at the Manila Marriott Hotel, Pasay City, Philippines.

While external auditors play a big role in business, they rely only on the truthfulness of the financial statement provided to them.  But external auditors get to check after the fact or after fraud has happened.  When you want to prevent fraud before it happens, this is where the value of an internal auditor becomes necessary and relevant.  It is the internal auditor who can police your operations to check if there are irregularities that are happening.  This provides you the need to have a well- functioning and effective internal audit system that can truly help you improve your risk management and cost control processes including monitoring and detecting fraud, provide recommendations for more sound corporate governance practices and very effective and efficient operations.

This two-day special program is to help those for profit and non-profit organizations, private and public institutions in their capacity to build, set up and maintain an internal audit department.  You can start with a person or a team of two to handle this function if you are a start-up or an SME, or a group handling internal audit activity for bigger organizations.

This special program will feature course director and lecturer, Mary Jane O. Rosales, CPA, CIA. She was the President of The Institute of Internal Auditors in the Philippines in 2008. She has helped several organizations to improve their internal audit functions and aligned those with existing ones to the current best practices in internal audit. Many of her initiatives are focused on promoting internal audit as a way to strengthen the performance of many organizations. She obtained her B.S.B.A degree, Major in Accounting from University of the Philippines (1979). While building her career handling controllership and risk management functions at Petron Corporation, she earned mastery in accounting, internal audit and risk management.


This training is open to the general public. Attend this special program and learn the best practices for better business performance. Pre-registration is required in this limited-seats-only event. Interested participants may avail of the early bird savings and group discounts for 3 or more participants.

Effective Estate and Tax Planning for Families


When death strikes a property or a business owner unexpectedly, heirs suffer. Huge estate taxes have financially wiped out many family fortunes. The best time to prepare for this is when you are still alive. And when you really plan ahead, you can outsmart the tax system legally. If you do not plan your estate, lawyers will have to settle it. Taxes and penalties will be high and there is that dreaded possibility of long drawn litigation that freezes the assets when heirs contest it.

To help and guide you and your family on this, the Center for Global Best Practices is hosting a one-day pioneering seminar entitled, “Families’ Guide to Estate and Tax Planning", scheduled on Friday, May 4, 2018 at the Manila Marriott Hotel, Pasay City, Philippines.

On this one-day seminar, learn the secrets of tax-savvy rich families who are able to save millions of avoidable taxes with the right tax exempt and tax saving strategies in the transfer and disposition of their assets to their families and the next generation. Our expert practitioner will help you align your tax strategies with the recent tax and TRAIN laws and most recent BIR regulations and rulings. We will teach you novel asset protection strategies, including solutions and remedies to unlock frozen assets due to unpaid taxes. Best of all, we will show you the correct valuation method of your property so you can deal fairly and squarely with the tax authorities who at times can be vague about how they arrived at their own valuation.

This special seminar will feature taxation and commercial law expert, Atty. Nicasio C. Cabaneiro, CPA. He has over 40 years of teaching experience and 25 years with the Bank of Philippine Islands capping his career as its Vice-President and Head of the Legal Services Division (1982 to 2007). He is a sought-after lecturer and tax consultant of various institutions across many industries as well as high net worth individuals to help them with their tax and other legal matters. He finished his accounting degree (Magna Cum Laude) and his law degree (Cum Laude) at the San Beda College of Law. Presently, he is also of general counsel and corporate secretary of the Philippine Clearing House Corporation (PCHC) and Tuloy sa Don Bosco Street Children Foundation.

This seminar is for those families who want to save on taxes and leave a lasting legacy for their loved ones. Interested participants are encouraged to avail of the early registration savings and group discounts for 3 or more participants. Seats are limited and pre-registration is required.
