Embassy Induction Seminar launches family network
The 2014 Induction Seminar broke all attendance records, not least because of the first-ever spouse & partners programme introduced by the Doyenne of the Diplomatic Corps, Mrs Dalal Al Duwaisan. The popular initiative will see the launch of London’s much-needed diplomatic families network (watch this space!).
Newly-arrived diplomats and their families got the perfect start to their posting, with a packed day of networking and specialised workshops where they were introduced to London’s many diplomatic associations and essential contacts useful to their professional and family lives.
Highlights included talks by the Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, the Marshal of the Diplomatic Corps, the Diplomatic Protection Group, veteran parliamentarian and former foreign minister Lord Howell and several senior officials from key Whitehall departments.
