Workshop 1: The truth about successful blogging

Blogging, like social media, is an online platform that can catapult your communications and advocacy efforts to the next level by connecting you with your audience like no other writing can. Yet blogging is both an art and a science – and different from other styles of writing, with its own special set of skills and rules. This workshop will unveil and equip you with these skills, whether you blog for the UN, the private sector, an NGO or yourself.

And yet, most corporate presentations are mediocre at best. In this course, you learn how to prepare, construct and deliver a presentation that people will remember. A presentation that makes an impact.
