Du4 provides protocol and special events support to the Director of Protocol and Special Events at USAID within the Bureau for Legislative and Public Affairs. As partof its mission to provide additional capacity to the Director, Du4 assists in producing Agency-wide events of all sizes throughout the year. We collaborated with the Agency to produce Frontiers in Development, a signature 3-day, bi-annual event attended by nearly 1,000 experts and leaders from across the development spectrum. Du4 also collaborated with USAID, in close contribution from the UK Department for International Development, in the MDG2014 event in New York City, which showcased the future of cutting-edge global development best practices and technologies as part of 2014 United Nations General Assembly gatherings. Longer term, Du4 is developing a comprehensive Protocol and Special Events training program for Agency use to create consistent internal event practices.
On a daily basis, the Du4 team successfully navigates USAID’s complex structure with grace by focusing on building strong relationships and advising Agency staff on diplomatic protocols to help them effectively manage the logistics of events of varying scales and budgets. As our relationship with USAID develops, other USAID bureaus are seeking our support and expertise for their own events and exhibits. In a relatively short period of time, Du4 has forged a reputation as a trusted and reliable federal government contractor with a keen eye for detail and flawless execution in a demanding setting.
