The United Nations was established to maintain international peace and security, and the UN representatives face danger and conflict on a daily basis. When the welfare of others is part of your job description, the most important foundation for your duties, is communication.

Thilan Legierse is a communications specialist and business consultant, with years of experience working in post-war zones for the UN. As a specialist in international war crimes, Thilan has seen some of the worst breakdowns in communication in the world, and the consequences of conflict.

In today’s episode of Be The Drop, Thilan recounts her journey in the UN, followed by her transition from public to private work. Thilan’s insights into the business world are deeply connected to human nature, she shares how this has shaped her approach for dealing with communication breakdown, and building successful teams.
