The CPD Advantage

CPD has been the innovative leader in training public diplomats, scholars and communication professionals for over 16 years. Our training utilizes the latest social science research and cutting-edge communication tools in real-time public diplomacy challenges. It provides a setting for practitioners to re-examine and refine their skills in a group of peers and to build an international network of colleagues. These programs are highly interactive, allow for collaborations with colleagues, and feature an engaging, forward-looking curriculum.

As usual, our workshops take a deep dive into some of the most critical issues in designing effective and sophisticated public diplomacy strategies with our leading scholars and experts. Sessions are fast-paced and also allow for personalization, as participants bring real-time projects to exercise their skills and problem-solve with faculty and peer participants.

With this Winter 2023 CPD Mini-Course offering, please note the ways in which our training differs from others:

  • Discounts for USC alumni (applicants must complete that section on the application form);
  • Discounts for organizations who send 3+ or more participants to a program;
  • Additional guest speakers added for additional feedback and insights;
  • Small group learning to allow for peer-to-peer networking and collaborations.
