Speaker information

Dame Nicola Brewer, Vice Provost (International), UCL

Nicola Brewer will give a view from personal experience of what Ambassadors do all day (and most evenings). She will also talk about diplomatic practice and ‘tradecraft’, and being a policy practitioner, thousands miles away from the boss, the Foreign Secretary. And she will share some of the highlights and low points of the years, 2009 – 2013, she spent in the beautiful, complicated and self-critical country that South Africa is today, 20 years after apartheid.
