Atoki, Onigbinde, Aigbogun, Kolawole, others headline 2017 PwC media workshop

The 2017 edition of the one-day PricewaterhouseCooper (PwC) Capability Enhancement Workshop for Journalists ended in Lagos with a line-up of subject matter experts dissecting various topics, reports ITRealms.

Led by a senior manager and Lead, Sustainability and Climate Change at PwC Nigeria, Mories Atoki, and Lead partner at BudgIT, Mr. Seun Onigbinde, whereas panelists included the publisher of BusinessDay, Mr. Frank Aigbogun, Publisher, CableNG, Mr. Simon Kolawole, and Wole Famurewa of CNBC Nigeria.

ITRealms reports that the presentations at the workshop included a session on “Tracking amd Reporting the SDGs” facilitated by Atoki, while Mr. Onigbinde, facilitated a session on “Using data to transform the news and provide insights."

In his opening remarks, the Country Senior Partner, PwC Nigeria, Mr. Uyi Akpata, noted that the annual workshop now in its fourth year with over 200 journalists benefiting from the training, is a major component of PwC’s Corporate Responsibility strategy.

“It was instituted in recognition of the very important role of the media in society and particularly, the role that the media in Nigeria has and continues to play in informing and educating the public,” he said.

Akpata also explained that PwC support for the media through this workshop and the media excellence award is in line with their purpose which is to build trust in society and solve important problems.

“It is a demonstration of our strong belief that for the Nigerian people to enjoy good governance, the media must perform its role optimally and professionally and this is reflected in the quality of reporting, in the capacity of individual journalists to carry out research and investigations, in the independence of editorial judgments, and in their ability to use technology as an enabler,” he assured.


Further, ITRealms reports that the capacity enhancement workshop precedes the Award Gala Night for the announcement of winners of this year’s PwC Media Excellence Awards which is scheduled to hold on Friday 6th October 2017 at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos.
