Effective communication is fundamental to successful diplomacy, specifically in times of crisis marked by high levels of uncertainty. Delivering one’s message is key to work together efficiently and to overcome challenges at both the individual and organisational level.

The Division for Multilateral Diplomacy of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and Conflux Center for Intercultural Mediation and Dialogue have designed and developed the virtual course “EFFECTIVE WRITING AND SPEAKING SKILLS IN MULTILATERAL DIPLOMACY: Written Reporting, Public Speaking and Speechwriting” for professionals to better structure their approach to their own professional style, build resilience, and be self-motivated during these times of ambiguity. 

The course fee is EUR 1,000 (USD 1,250). A limited amount of partial subsidies are available. Please contact Ms. Lea Köstler for more information on how to apply: lea.kostler@unitar.org

The aim of the virtual course “EFFECTIVE WRITING AND SPEAKING SKILLS FOR MULTILATERAL DIPLOMACY: Written Reporting, Public Speaking and Speechwriting” is to identify areas participants need to improve, in order to give the impression of spontaneity and confidence while delivering their message to an audience as well as how to make the content of their speeches and reports pertinent and highly engaging. Drawing on the latest modern techniques in the ancient art of rhetoric (the skill of oration and persuasion) and writing, the trainers provide the staff with feedback enabling them to make immediate adjustments and improvements during the training at a behavioural - rather than simply at a theoretical - level.

By examining the essential professional qualities needed to sustain the world of multilateral diplomacy, participants will be enabled to further improve their high-level public speaking and writing competences. The ultimate objective is to strengthen the individual’s resilience under uncertainty, and to enable them to work efficiently during these challenging times.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Apply public speaking, presentation, speechwriting, and reporting techniques, – including preparation, structure, and delivery;
  • Acquire essential principles of the art and craft of speechwriting and written reporting;
  • Identify personal strengths and weaknesses as presenters and writers;
  • Demonstrate the ability to use voice and words to effect when giving presentations: wording, diction, intonation, rhythm, and pacing;
  • Implement acquired tools for combating public speaking anxiety.

The participants will learn from experts who will cover essential principles of written reporting, speechwriting, as well as public speaking. The training will consist of lectures and facilitated discussions by senior experts and practitioners in the field, as well as simulation exercises, role play and case studies, which will comprise a significant portion of the course. A space will be provided for group discussions and best practices and experience sharing among the participants under the guidance of the senior mentors. The course will also focus on practical exercises using audio and video media.

Given its core purpose, the course will take place via the online platform Zoom. The activities will be designed to be highly interactive, characterised by a similar format to that of face-to-face courses. As a result, a similar level of engagement will be guaranteed through discussion, Q&A sessions, and hands-on exercises and assignments.

The virtual course will take place over a period of five days, from the 15th to 19th February 2021. The specified times are in accordance with CET (Central European Time) / UTC+1 (Coordinated Universal Time) time zone.

Upon completion of the course, certificates of participation comprising official logos of Conflux Center and UNITAR will be issued in PDF, and a hard copy can be sent via post upon request.

The virtual course aims at strengthening the individual capacity of growth-oriented professionals working in a multilateral diplomatic professional environment, who are or aim to be in high-level roles requiring pivotal professional skills such as written reporting, public speaking, and speechwriting.

Specifically, this course is designed for mid to senior level sta­ff in peacekeeping and political missions of the UN and regional organisations (AU, OSCE, EU, etc.), diplomats, those working in governments, non-governmental organisations, and academic institutions.
