Tailor-made coaching for new ambassadors

So you’ve been appointed as ambassador to an African country. Be sure to visit us at the Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala before you go. We offer tailor-made individual coaching programs to newly appointed ambassadors as well as other staff working in Nordic embassies in Africa.

Our coaching program normally requires a full day, but we can also squeeze it in on half-a-day depending on your needs. The program is free of charge and includes private meetings with researchers and guided tour to the library’s resources, along with some other activities.
