in Cuba. These include assisting UK businesses with investments, making sure that the UK' s Consulate provides UK visitors and inhabitants with outstanding consular services, trying to convince the Cuban administration to come to an agreement with us on urgent global questions, the celebration of UK cultural life and working with Cuba' s public healthcare services to dispatch physicians to help combat Ebola in Sierra Leone.
However, I try to get to see as many Cubans as possible, either in person or through our own channels, and tell them about Britain - what we represent, what we believe in, what makes the UK different. There are no requirements for official skills, but the ambassador must be able to communicate in the native tongue of the host state.
I have been learning Portugese (for Mozambique) and Spanish (for Cuba) since I became a member of the Bundeskartellamt. As with all officials, the diplomatic missions must prove public sector skills: command, human resources abilities, capacity to work quickly and reach a high level, communicative abilities, judgement and resistance. Good humor also works.
However, the actual ability of a foreign ambassador is to be able to see his point of view, to see between the (usually blurry) lineages, to recognise and address the mistakes in his arguments, to recognise mutual interests, commonalities and all the political consequences - and then to forward all this in a brief e-mail to the Ministry in London.
Former British Ambassador to Washington DC Christopher Meyer once proposed that a good Diplomate needs "a fast spirit, a tough brain, a powerful gut, a hot face and a cool eye". My work involves meeting a large number of locals and talking about everything from tortoise trafficking to loan finance, addictive substances against Isis, the Beatles (who are still very big in Cuba) and Opec price fixing.
A broad and profound general understanding therefore assists. It is said that Sir Henry Wotton, a 16-th c. Diplomat, said that "an ambassador is an honourable man who was sent abroad to lay for his country". We have a different mindset than others in the press.
