The master class is specifically designed to unearth unique and modern writing techniques for an audience who may only be interested in what you have to say or offer when it is carefully deployed in a 140-character tweet or an instant video on YouTube. Presented by Yinka Adegoke, Africa editor at Quartz; and Ijeoma Genevieve Mbamalu, senior editor at MUIPR, these two industry professionals possess more than 30 years of experience writing for major global organizations. The class will specifically address how smart professionals need to adapt for a world with smaller screens and 24-hour news cycles.

 

“We are excited that Arik Air will sponsor our master class in writing and communications for the social mobile age,” said Genevieve Mbamalu, senior editor at MUIPR. “We look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with them.”

 

Brand publicists, social media managers, writers, and other communications managers from leading small to mid-cap companies are invited to attend. Click here to register for the class.
