This course is for officials working in the state or public sectors who attend international meetings. It may also suit those who work alongside such people.

This one-week intensive course includes work on giving presentations, making speeches, preparing opening statements, chairing and participating in formal and informal meetings, written communication and telephoning. Participants can also expect to be using language related to hosting visits, socialising and working in a multicultural environment. Course participants can expect the following areas to be covered in the course:

  • Presentation of one's own area of work and organisational structure
  • Simulated negotiations and meetings
  • Aspects of international relations including intercultural understanding
