‘Talking Foreign Affairs’ Adil Cader hosting former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
MTI Consulting will be incubating ‘Talking Foreign Affairs with Adil Cader’, an Australian-based start-up in foreign affairs and diplomacy.
“Our purpose is to empower and encourage young people to play an active role in foreign affairs and diplomacy, to combat global challenges. We enable this by engaging World Leaders to share their learnings and perspectives on foreign affairs and diplomacy,” said ‘Talking Foreign Affairs’ Founder and Host Adil Cader (https://talkingforeignaffairs.org/).
‘Talking Foreign Affairs’ seeks to educate young people on key international issues and analyse key themes of foreign policy and current global affairs. Their offerings include hosting panels, addressing conferences, carrying out research and publishing.
‘Talking Foreign Affairs’ has interviewed several World Leaders, from a UN Secretary-General to Heads of State, from Nobel Laureates to those who have led mission-critical organisations like the WTO, World Bank and NASA. It will operate as a non-partisan and non-profit initiative.
