Join Tisch College for a conversation with former Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall to discuss her new book, “Protocol: The Power of Diplomacy and How to Make It Work for You.”

Marshall served as White House social secretary in the Clinton Administration from 1997-2001 and United States Chief of Protocol in the Obama administration from 2009 to 2013. In her role, she enhanced traditional protocol methods with new tools to build relationships between dignitaries and industry leaders world-wide, and oversaw the diplomatic details of state visits, G20. . and G8 convenings, and summits like the Nuclear Security summit, APEC, NATO and Sunnylands summits.

She is president of Global Engagement Strategies, LLC, which advises international, public, and private clients on issues relating to the nexus of business and cultural diplomacy.

As a first-generation American, she has brought an understanding of the importance of culture to her posts and consultations. Marshall is currently Ambassador-in-Residence at the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center at . . the Atlantic Council in Washington, DC.
