During the online and offline sessions we held during the five months prior to WorldMUN, numerous topics were covered not only in great depth but also in a way that made it easy to apply the knowledge just gained.
For example, during our first online sessions, we had talked about concepts for good speeches and practiced formulating speeches following certain patterns. When we met for our first offline session in Heidelberg, we combined the concepts with the second very important aspect of delivering speeches, body language. Thanks to this weekend, I am now more aware of my movements and how other people might perceive them. This did not only help a great deal when standing up and speaking in front of 400 delegates in the DISEC committee in Brussels, but way beyond that. I had mentioned to Project Director and be.boosted founder Tobias during my first ‘individual development call’ that a big struggle for me was to convey messages in a short, emphasized and precise manner. As we constantly reviewed my progress regarding this issue, I am now more confident in my ability to convey messages precisely.
