Your Coach

TALYN RAHMAN-FIGUEROA
CEO, Grassroot Diplomat

A trained British diplomat, Talyn Rahman-Figueroa has been working in diplomacy for more than 10 years as a Consultant, Strategist, Creative Producer and Executive Director. She has created a niche in the field of diplomacy, working alongside foreign governments and various public sector bodies in improving government communications on a public-facing level. Talyn coaches public diplomats on creating a personal brand, finding the right balance between managing personal ethics and conflicting national interests. She is the lead coach at the Grassroot Diplomat Online Academy where she offers tutorials, case studies, podcasts, and practical exercises for practitioners to create the best version of themselves in a complex and highly bureaucratic environment.

Talyn has a proven track record of operating at senior level, answering directly to senior management and Board of Directors. Consequently, she has assisted various foreign government projects including the NHS, the British Government and the Qatari Government, and continues to consult with clients working directly on government projects. This includes working with politicians and state governments in improving their public brand and image for various campaigns.

Talyn has a natural affinity for visual communications and continues to advice governments and public sector bodies on strategic communications. A trained diplomat, she is the director and producer of several podcast shows including Grassroot Diplomat Talks and Diplomacy Engage, the lead consultant for all digital diplomacy and public diplomacy projects, and the author of "Women in Diplomacy". Talyn recently published the “Diplomatic Planner” - a highly visual 12-month career development toolkit for international relations to help practitioners overcome ethical dilemmas and conflicts of interests in this red-tape field.
