09:00 to 16:30
Victoria Island, Lagos

We hosted our first capacity building workshop for the media/press men in Nigeria on 3rd November, 2017.

The aim of this one-day master class was to improve and enhance the skills and knowledge of the press men to enable them deliver on their jobs competently and position themselves for opportunities within and outside the industry.

Event Sessions:

  • Personal branding for journalists: Journalism is not respected as it should be by corporate organizations and PR firms. This aspect of the workshop will show the journalists ways of packaging themselves and their careers as brands. 
  • Content Optimization for journalists in Nigeria: This session will offer the journalists required basic skills to optimize their content for the online space.
  • Conflict sensitive journalism: This session will aim to ensure journalists understand the effect of their work and roles during conflicts and can better appreciate how important their role is in a conflict. 
  • Collaborations in the media space – Nigerian media/International media: This aspect of the workshop will highlight the opportunities for collaboration and what the benefits are.
