Enhancing Presentation Skills
This module is designed to help participants learn how to improve pitching and presentation skills. Except for a short session dedicated to the theory and the tools on how to improve presentation skills, the module is based on experiential learning.
Managing Communication for Development Processes & Projects
The module delves into the relationship between communication and the world of development and cooperation.
