On the first day of the workshop, the room was full of students from Victoria University who fully benefitted from Mr. Georgini’s presence. While presenting concepts and tools, Mr. Alexandre Georgini illustrated his lecture with practical examples taken from his personal experience. This, according to students, proved very useful when the whole class went through a case study at the end of the presentation.

On the second day, the workshop turned into a participative talk where both Ugandan and French participants were invited to talk about their experience and share best practices. This session brought together career diplomats and senior officials from the Ugandan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
