Diplomatic English

01 December 2011

Event description

In December 2011, Diplo lecturers Biljana Scott and Liz Galvez started a new workshop on ‘Diplomatic English’ designed to help diplomats communicate more effectively both in writing and through public speaking in a range of diplomatic contexts. The workshop was heavily slanted towards practical diplomatic tasks. Exercises were designed to offer participants the chance to practice clarity and conciseness in diplomatic writing as well as writing for new social media, and preparation of PowerPoint presentations. In addition, participants had the opportunity to practice public speaking, both impromptu and prepared, as well as media interviews, including Hard Talk scenarios.
