Diplo Professional Development Workshops

Upcoming Workshops in November 2009
» Public Speaking: Prepared and Impromptu
» Time (Stress) Management and Crisis Communication

DiploFoundation's series of Professional Development Workshops is a result of many years of experience in the field of diplomatic training and knowledge sharing. They focus on an interactive, face-to-face, and hands-on approach, which enables participants to gain professional and personal skills that can be applied in the workplace and in the ever increasing global integration of cultures.

Public Speaking: Prepared and Impromptu (23-25 November 2009) will be run by Dr Biljana Scott, a University of Oxford faculty lecturer in linguistics, while Time (Stress) Management and Crisis Communication (26-28 November 2... will be run by Dr Eduardo Gelbstein, a Professor at Webster University in Geneva and an expert with over 40 years’ experience in the organisational and social impact of ICT.

These workshops will cover the necessary tools to tackle and overcome critical and crucial moments in today’s fast-paced work environments, where time and communication skills, as well as public speaking skills, are not only important but indispensable.


A two-phase approach will be adopted during each workshop. The first involves a knowledge sharing phase during which the lecturers will be imparting theoretical knowledge. The second involves the practical application of theory.

A key aspect of the workshops is the high level of expertise provided. Professional lecturers offer participants with a wealth of first-hand knowledge and experience. Participants are further engaged in active discussions and simulation exercises enriching both their knowledge and practical skills.

Who Should Apply

The workshops are aimed at professionals in the private and public sector who wish to practice and improve their skills in an environment which fosters the sharing of knowledge, good practices, and above all, practical training.
