Over 50 young Nigerian media professionals will on Wednesday, September 4, 2019, gather at Radisson Blu Hotel, Ikeja GRA, Lagos for the second edition of the Social4Media Masterclass.
The event hosted by Lagos based marketing and media company, ID Africa and marketing technology startup, Plaqad is a free digital workshop to help journalists, bloggers, influencers, publishers, PR execs and developers who work in media to better understand the relevant social media platforms and tools, and how to use them.
The invite-only Masterclass will have over 12 professionals and experts from the fields of marketing, media and tech and these professionals will share useful insights through case studies and provide practical tools that will help journalists, bloggers and storytellers to effectively leverage opportunities that digital media offers. It is believed that with improved digital skills and a deeper understanding of technology tools, more media professionals in Africa can successfully innovate and grow.
In a conversation with the CEO of ID Africa, Femi Falodun says, “A lot of our friends in the media; journalists and publishers are putting great effort into getting online and using social media, but many are still not achieving the desired results. Our mission with Social4Media is to provide insights, tools and techniques that will help them succeed and grow their businesses.”
Gbenga Sogbaike, CEO of Plaqad also added: “Social4Media is designed to help reporters, bloggers, editors, PR execs and others who work in media to better understand the relevant social media platforms and tools, and how to use them better. We are doing this through case studies, panel discussions and presentations by experts who have successfully used digital media for business growth.”
