These are a series of virtual lectures and workshops based on the highly successful seminars run at the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at SOAS.
The courses focus around practical skills - making a
presentation, writing a CV, handling the media, facing
interviews, speaking in public, speechwriting and writing for
news. The aim is to teach you practical skills you can take
away for work and academic life.
Some of the workshops are dependent on you submitting a 3 minute
presentation, which you can record on a phone, tablet or
PC. There is no one correct way of doing a
presentation and we want to assess your natural style, rather
than prescribe a rigid template. We often find that
things people most worry about in presentations can be tuirned
round to their advantage - by being yourself rather than
Obama/Blair/Jobs you are much more likely to succeed.
