United Netherlands Academy
For over a decade, United Netherlands has been successful in training a group of ambitious students for participation in competitive international Model United Nations conferences. The skills and knowledge regarding public speaking, negotiation, lobbying and personal skills are renowned for their level of professionalism. Since 2012, the organization seeks to expand her activities in order to enable more students to benefit from the internationally acclaimed level of skills that United Netherlands is recognized for. With this in mind, the United Netherlands Academy was created in 2012 by Walter Broersma and Bianca Buijsingh.
In October 2012, the Academy successfully launched its first program, the United Netherlands Public Speaking Program. Today, the Public Speaking Program takes place twice every year and in 9 cities throughout the country: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Leiden, Tilburg, Nijmegen, Groningen, The Hague, Wageningen and Utrecht.
The Academy has been created to develop and implement academic programs and activities for students throughout the Netherlands. These academic programs and activities help deepening students’ understanding of international affairs and social responsibility and will provide them with the tools to effectively bring their message across.
Apart from the Public Speaking Program, the Academy has expertise on many other aspects of practical diplomacy and personal leadership and is skilled in creating suiting workshops for all kinds of parties.
