Brilliant Manoeuvres: How to Use Military Wisdom to Win Business…

14797 Richard Martin, Class of ’85, is founder and president of Alcera Consulting Inc. Prior to launching his consulting business, Richard attended the prestigious Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean as an officer cadet and then served for 21 years as an infantry officer in the Canadian Army.

His proudest moment in the military was successfully commanding a peacekeeping force in one of the worst flashpoints of Bosnia: the town of Drvar. At the time, this led historian David Bercuson to write in the National Post that Richard Martin and his company “can do no wrong”.

Richard is the only member of Alan Weiss’s Million Dollar Consulting Mentoring Hall of Fame with extensive military experience. He brings his business and military leadership experience to bear for organizations and executives in both the private and public sectors seeking to exploit change, maximize opportunity, and minimize risk. http://www.alcera.ca/en/book.php

THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO SEEKS ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE’S ENGINEERING ALUMNI FOR FELLOWSHIP IN GLOBAL JOURNALISM

The University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs invites you to apply for one of 15 Fellowships in Global Journalism. This pioneering program is designed for outstanding individuals with advanced knowledge of engineering, who wish to cover their own specialty as full-time or part-time reporters for media around the world.

As a Fellow, from September 2013 to April 2014, you would actually break news on your specialty for major media around the world, while being mentored by leading journalists. Upon completing the programs you can return to your professional or academic work while covering it part-time as a freelancer; or become a full time specialty reporter with contacts around the world; or launch a new media enterprise to improve the coverage of your own discipline.

JOIN OUR FELLOWS

In 2012-13, Fellows included two young professors, three PhDs, a lawyer, a former advertising executive, a former development aid professional, an architectural designer, and a Middle East specialist. They are spending the year reporting for major media on disciplines ranging from environmental law and science, to urban development, policing and corporate social responsibility.

BE MATCHED WITH MAJOR MEDIA PARTNERS

Upon admission, you will be matched with a member of our media network. In 2012-13 these included: The Globe and Mail, CBC News, The Toronto Star, Postmedia Network, the Thomson Reuters Foundation, and The Dallas Morning News. You would then cover your discipline as a freelancer to that news organization throughout the program, under our mentorship. This work will take precedence over course-work and over other freelance work.

Through arrangements organized by the program, you would also have the opportunity to freelance in your discipline to news organizations around the world, including: The Financial Times, BBC Global News and The Washington Post and other niche media services covering your specialty.

LEARN GLOBAL JOURNALISM FROM TOP MENTORS AND COACHES

Top journalists will teach you a curriculum that includes:

– A one-month bootcamp that prepares each Fellow to work for major media by October.

– Core Writing, which focuses on essential journalism skills and values

– Investigative Journalism, which will teach you how to uncover hidden stories in your discipline.

– Broadcast and Mobile Journalism, which will teach you the core skills you need to report as a freelancer for TV and radio.

– New Media Platforms, which will teach you how to optimize the web visibility of your work, how to conceive packages for web coverage, and how to engage on-line audiences.

– Global Dynamics¸ which will help you maintain an aggressively global perspective on your stories you shift into journalism.

– Advanced Interviewing Skills, which will teach you how to undertake emotionally charged and complex interviews confidently.

– Freelance Tradecraft, which will teach you how to cover global news as an independent journalist.

On a daily basis, two bureau chiefs – both experienced foreign correspondents– will also mentor you on your freelance work and work as your own editors as you file stories to major media.
