ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP) has unveiled October 6 and 7, 2021 as dates for its fifth annual conference, reports 
ITREALMS.
A press statement signed by GOCOP publicity secretary, Mr. Olumide Iyanda and made available to ITREALMS, revealed that the theme of the conference is "COVID-19 Pandemic: Recovery and Reconstruction in Nigeria.”
Iyanda also said that the choice of the topic is informed by contemporary political, economic, security, socio-cultural challenges facing Nigeria occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic which has crippled socio-cultural and economic activities not only in Nigeria, but around the world and the concerted efforts made nationally and globally to tame the scourge.

He equally quoted Maureen Chigbo, GOCOP vice president and chairperson of the conference organising committee, as saying that the programme would include a business lunch with leading marketing and corporate communications practitioners in Nigeria on the first day of the conference.

The business lunch, she said, would take place at the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, on October 6 by 1pm prompt.

"After the lunch, GOCOP members will go into a closed-door session to discuss internal affairs of the guild," Chigbo said.

On the second day, October 7, GOCOP VP said, there would be a lecture on the conference theme to be delivered by a top official of the Federal Government, with discussions by experts in health, economic and political affairs. A state governor will chair the conference.

Both the governor and top government official along with other speakers would soon be made public.

The conference, which promises to be a worthwhile event, will bring together policy and decision-makers from the private and public sectors as well as scholars, non-governmental organisations and the media.
