In a bid to create a platform where more women connect, engage and learn from one another, Leading Ladies Africa is set to hold the inaugural edition of its Power Talk Series tagged “Leveraging on the Power of Online Media.” The event will hold on Sunday July 12 at the Social Place, Victoria Island, from 2pm prompt.
Confirmed Speakers at the event are: Liz Awoliyi, Online Editor, Genevieve Magazine, Subomi Plumptre, Head, Corporate and Social Media Practice, Alder Consulting, Chude Jideonwo, Managing Partner Red Media Africa, Tosin Ajibade, Founder www.Olorisupergal.com, and Convener New Media Conference, Yagazie Emezi, Visual Curator & YouTuber and Ifeoma Areh, CEO Wildflower PR and Convener Digital Entertainment Conference.
Speaking on the forthcoming event, Francesca Uriri, Founder of Leading Ladies Africa, and event convener said: The media has moved from being static and predictable to become something that is dynamic, influential, and sometimes unconventional. It has changed the way business is done, it has impacted global politics and it has shaped the way people live. I believe it’s doubly important for women especially to learn how to leverage on the advantages that online media brings, and integrate same into their daily lives and businesses.”
“Media as we now know it has evolved from a stuffy, strait-laced field, to a dynamic, fluid and influential tool. It’s the power of online media, it tears down boundaries.” Says Ifeoma Areh, of WildFlowerPR
Commenting further on the event, confirmed speaker and Managing Partner Red Media Africa, Chude Jideonwo says: In a few years, there will be no distinction between so-called traditional and new media as entire audiences make the move up and forward. So for our clients and our projects, it’s really simple – if they want to be here tomorrow and in the future, new media has to be a central part of their business strategy. Our job is to move them into their #DigitalFuture.
