As novel global challenges destabilise and deeply affect organisations throughout the world, UNITAR seeks to continue its mission in providing quality adult education aimed at strengthening capacity building. In this context, UNITAR is therefore pleased to partner again with the Conflux Center in implementing and delivering an innovative online course on Speechwriting and Public Speaking Skills for Multilateral Diplomacy: Cases & Insights from the United Nations.

The selected online 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 highlevel roles requiring pivotal professional skills such as public speaking and speechwriting.

 

The aim of the virtual course is to guide the participants in making the content of their speeches pertinent and engaging, and in giving the impression of spontaneity and confidence while delivering the message to their audience, drawing on the latest techniques in the art of writing and rhetoric (the skill of oration and persuasion). The participants will be able to identify areas they need to improve, and the mentors will provide feedback enabling the participants to make adjustments and advances.

By examining the essential professional qualities needed to sustain the world of multilateral diplomacy, participants will acquire high-level public speaking and speechwriting 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 speechwriting and public speaking skills and techniques, including preparation, structure, and delivery in face-to-face and online formats;
  • Acquire essential principles of the art and craft of speechwriting and delivering speeches;
  • Identify personal strengths and weaknesses as speakers and writers;
  • Develop their personal writing and presentation style and tailor it to respective audiences;
  • Demonstrate the ability to use voice and words to effect when giving speeches or presentations: wording, diction, intonation, rhythm, and pacing;
  • Implement acquired tools for combating public speaking anxiety.

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 face-to-face courses. As a result, a similar level of engagement will be guaranteed through simulations, group exercises and discussions, hands-on assignments whenever possible, and Q&A sessions.

UNITAR and the Conflux Center have designed and developed an online course for professionals to better structure their approach to their own professional style, build resilience, and be self-motivated during these times of ambiguity. The ultimate objective of the online training suite is to help individuals to strengthen their resilience under uncertainty, and to work efficiently.

The aim of the UNITAR – Conflux Center Online Course on Speechwriting and Public Speaking Skills for Multilateral Diplomacy: Cases & Insights from the United Nations 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 pertinent and highly engaging. Additionally, highly experienced guest speakers from various backgrounds will share their unique experiences in public speaking and speechwriting providing participants with bestpractice examples to solving unforeseen challenges in the field of multilateral diplomacy.
