As part of efforts to foster a more harmonious working relationship between bloggers and social media influencers; and corporate affairs managers of banks, the first bankers/bloggers conference would hold Thursday, July 16th at the Protea Hotel, GRA, Ikeja.
The theme of the conference is; ‘What Do Bloggers Really Want: The PR Perspective’. Foremost PR practitioner and C.E.O of TPT International, Mr. Tokunbo Modupe, is the Lead Speaker while author, poet, PR practitioner and online publisher, Toni Kan, is Co-Speaker. Multiple awards-winning journalist and renowned social media influencer, Tolu Ogunlesi, is the moderator of the event.
Conceived by Ultimate Communications, the parent body of the Best of Nollywood Awards, Naijahottestgist.com and bestofnollywood.tv, the conference, according to the project coordinator, Adeola Olonilua, aims to create a platform for communication managers to engage, interact and network with foremost bloggers in a convivial atmosphere.
Olonilua said further, “You will agree with me that over the last few years, the evolution of social media has altered the style of communication radically. For many communication managers of banks, the anonymity of social media promoters or overlords and bloggers as it were, is a major stumbling block while many bloggers, especially, believe that communication managers are aloof and indifferent to their trade, an assumption that creates several avoidable crises between both parties.”
