A TOTAL of 20 Ministry of Defence officers attended a workshop to polish up their communication skills at Sultan Hj Hassanal Bolkiah Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies yesterday.

The workshop aimed to improve the civilian officers’ public speaking skills and enhance the way of presenting to audiences.

During the workshop, each participant was also evaluated not only by the trainers, but also by their peers and a self-evaluation.

A follow-up coaching session for the same group of participants will be held sometime this month and in April.

The workshop was organised following a suggestion from Deputy Minister of Defence Dato Paduka Hj Mustappa Hj Sirat, who wanted the ministry’s officers to be able to deliver their message more effectively.

The workshop was coordinated by the Directorate of Administration and Manpower and facilitated by Toastmasters Brunei Club.
