Delegate Therapy

We are here to help with delegate therapy

Bracketing Therapists 

As the negotiations are coming to an end on the Post 2015 Agenda you must be worrying what you will do with all that time you now will have.

Delegate’s therapy is a service offered to help delegates to readjust to their lives after intensive negotiations.

Gone are the long nights writing back to capitals for instructions.
Gone are the stakeholders who want to meet you for coffee all the time.
Gone are the group meetings where you can debate with colleagues how to change a word here or there to save the planet.
Gone are the waiting with excitement for the next draft of the text.
Gone are Vienna café coffees, crepes and salads.
Gone are those moments waking up in the middle of night thinking I know what that text should be.
Gone are the informal workshops to frame the ideas for the next meeting
Gone are the Friends meetings – at least for the moment.
Gone are the moments you have to explain to your colleagues from capitals how the UN works.
Gone are having to explain to your family all about 17 goals and 169 targets
Gone are late night drinks in the Delegates Lounge.

We have the therapy package tailored JUST for you.

You can relive that moment when you get a particular phrase into the text or stop a country from getting their moment of glory.

We can help you through this very difficult time in your life. Some of the great ways to enable you to slowly re-enter society include:

Role playing

Here we offer a number of options tailored to your budget. These include:
  • Bilateral coffee negotiations
  • Small regional group negotiations
  • To the full premier package of a mini re-enacted UN meeting

We understand your pain where your family perhaps doesn’t and we can enable you to be able to talk to experienced therapists who can help you through those longing moments for new text or discussions on CBDR v shared responsibility or annexing the FfD text to the final Summit agreement.

We can also help you in your preparation for telling your Head of State what you have been doing over the last 4 years to get to this stage and document.

So contact Bracketing Therapists today for your individual quote.

Guest Blog Mike Barry: 5 things we learnt on Marks and Spencer Plan A journey over last 12 months

Guest Blog by Mike Barry:  Director of Sustainable Business (Plan A) at Marks and Spencer

It’s that time of year, publication of our annual sustainability (Plan A) report. After the harum scarum dash to gather, collate, assure, sign-off and publish a wealth of data we can breathe (for a moment!) and reflect on what it all means.
Here are some quick insights into what we’ve learnt at M&S in the last 12 months on our Plan A journey.
1. Succession – Nine years is a long time in the world of sustainable business. How many corporate plans have come and gone since we launched Plan A in 2007? Too many! The continuity offered by having a single multi-year plan has been incredibly important. It’s allowed us to take long term decisions in a very short term turbulent retail marketplace. It’s allowed us to build the skills and capabilities in our business units to integrate Plan A into their ways of working. It’s allowed us to pick our battles, knowing that occasionally we’ve just got to let a …

Bokova out? Georgieva in for next UN Secretary General

The rumors that have been circulating for the last month have now proven to be true. The Bulgarian government has withdrawn support from Irina Bokova as their candidate for UN Secretary General and replaced her with Kristalina Georgieva, the European commissioner for budget and human resources.
There is some evidence that the right of center parties in European capitals have been behind this with some articles appearing in the last few weeks against Bokova. The Guardian reported on the 26th: “one of her (Kristalina’s) staff members was hacked and emails purporting to be from one of her top aides were sent out to the rest of her office, instructing them to attack Bokova”There is no question that Kristalina has the cv and record to be a very good UN Secretary General. She is a strong supporter of sustainable development issues she will pick up the SDGs and climate agendas with ease. She is dynamic and very personable and was very active around last week’s UN General Assembly High Level se…

Rest in Peace Tania Valerie Raguz 'one of our own'

It is with deep sadness that I heard of the passing of Tania Valerie Raguz.

Many of us will have worked with her at United Nations meetings over the past ten years when she was the First Secretary of the Mission of Croatia to the UN.

Tania Valerie Raguz was on the Bureau for Rio+20 and a Vice-Chair Of the Bureau of the seventeenth session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) and  most recently she had joined the world of NGOs working as the Public Affairs Advisor for the World Animal Protection previously know as World Society for the Protection of Animals. WAP had been very active around Rio+20 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and she helped their work particularly around the SDGs.

Tania played her role in helping to frame the agenda that we are all committed to delivering on. CSD17 was one of the more successful CSD and without Rio+20 there would be no Sustainable Development Goals.
