Hands on simulations and theoretical consulting will introduce attendees to:

1. The digital media management/public management interface to enhance a media-led standpoint for diplomatic practise.

2. The incorporation into diplomacy of the visual and emotional qualities of contemporary communications.

3. The ability to fully utilise shifting storytelling formats and techniques for diplomatic research and practise.



This course is aimed at both junior diplomats seeking to build career progression and senior diplomats looking to broaden their portfolio. As the course is media-focused, it would be equally suited to political advisors and those who support digital communication in that sphere.

The training is tailored to meet individual need and delivered in seminar format. This allows attendees to identify key personal aims and build on their existing knowledge. Time is given to the transferable nature of elements of the course, e.g. cultural to smart and soft to economic.
