Workshops

Utilising the expertise our foundation has accumulated in recent years, the Academy began providing workshops to external partners in 2013. During the last two years, our workshops have been provided to organizations such as de Kleine Consultant, the Public International Law & Policy Group (PILP), the EFR Businessweek in Rotterdam and various study associations in the Netherlands.

Workshop on the Essentials of Public Speaking

Are you searching for a workshop in which your students, members or Ph.D.’s are trained in the craft of public speaking and presentation skills?

In this demanding 3 ½ hour workshop our trainers will teach your students how to convincingly bring across their message. The use of body language, voice and structure will be discussed as well other important tips and tricks to get your participants’ content sharp and to the point. Half of the workshop will be dedicated to letting the participants practice and to get them out of their comfort zone. All our workshops are in the English language and therefore suitable for international groups of around 20 participants.

Personal Leadership and Practical Diplomacy Workshop

If you are searching for a workshop format in which you are trained by highly skilled debaters that have participated at Model United Nations Simulation in Oxford and Harvard, this is the one for you.

This unique workshop format seeks to combine the theory of presenting yourself in a convincing manner with the basics of negotiation and lobbying. In 4 hours we will combine essentials of public speaking (body language, use of voice & framing) together with a theory of negotiation and lobbying toolkit. The last 2 hours of the workshop are reserved for a special case in which the participants have to apply all the skills they have previously obtained. Again, all our workshops are provided in the English language and are suitable for international groups. Given that this is a very demanding training we advise that groups be no bigger than 15 participants.
