Mtolankhani House will host a series of activities before the year ends.

Essential Public Communication Skills training becomes the first training to be hosted in the recently launched MISA Malawi office and Training Centre building, Mtolankhani House in Lilongwe.

The two-day training, which has attracted eight Public Relations Officers (PROs) from the Malawi Police Service, started in the morning of Friday, November 15 and concludes on Saturday, November 16, 2019.

Essential Public Communication Skills is one of four modules that MISA Malawi developed in partnership with DW Akademie, Germany’s leading organisation for media development and Deutsche Welle’s center of excellence for education and knowledge transfer.

The module equips Public Relations Officers and communication professionals with modern knowledge and skills in public communication.

The module is designed to equip participants with effective communications skills, including how to effectively handle media interviews and successfully deliver a core message.

MISA Malawi trainers are experienced, practicing journalists and communications specialists who completed a rigorous DW Akademie ‘Train the Trainer’ course.

MISA Malawi trainers have also co-facilitated trainings with DW Akademie trainers to benefit from their expertise and international experience.

Mtolankhani House will host a series of activities before the year ends. The training on Effective Public Communication Skills is however the first formal training hosted at the Centre.
