A few words from Melissa Agnes
“I’m both honored and excited to have been selected by NATO to take part in such an important event – and to sit on a panel with such accomplished and admirable professionals, what a privilege!” – Melissa Agnes.
Outstanding! I hope you have the opportunity to share some lessons from the experience.
I'm positive that this conference will inspire some interesting concepts to write about. I'm really looking forward to it. Stay tuned!
As a student of fourth year of Political Science and International Relations at Sarajevo School of Science and Technology I was honored that I had chance to attend amazing conference organized by NATO. I found all panel discussions very interesting and informative, esepcially “Innovating Communications in a Crisis". It was great experinece to listen experts in this field as well as to hear some experinece from Ukraine, as we know what is ongoing there. Thank you
Thank you for your feedback, Amra! I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed our panel discussion. It was a pleasure to speak before you and the rest of the audience – and yes, Yaryna's insights were so interesting and valuable for attendees to learn from.
That is freaking awesome. Good for you. Is there a recording online anywhere?
Thank you! Nope, unfortunately, it was one of those "you had to be there to experience it" kind of (awesome) experiences. NATO in general doesn't publish recordings of their seminars, though we were featured in Bosnian news Thanks for your encouragement though!
