SMW Lagos 2019 - Stories

SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK LAGOS 2019 – STORIES: WITH GREAT INFLUENCE COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY

#SMWLAGOS 2019: STORIES

When I saw the Social Media Week 2019 Global theme, the first thing that came to mind was the famous quote said by Spider-man’s Uncle Ben, “With great power comes great responsibility”.  I must honestly say, it is so true.

African culture and tradition is rooted in storytelling. Historically this has been our primary way of communication. Our stories serve as a reference point and are integral to our identity as Africans. Our use of story as a tool beyond communication has always been paramount. The current digital paradigm however has allowed for the amplification of our stories and enabled us to have tremendous impact beyond our communities, our countries and the continent’s borders. It is also the case, that with this impact comes great responsibility and an obligation to use our collective influence to move Africa forward.

At #SMWLAGOS 2019 we’ll take a deep dive into the power of the stories we tell and how as content creators, policymakers, brands, journalists and citizens we can influence our community, customers, audience and constituents for the greater good. – Culled from SMW Lagos

    To become a sought after person in the global world one has to constantly build on his network. I am a student journalist and social media enthusiast who aspires to connect to the world through stories and travel. So far It has been a wonderful journey of finding questions to answers and sharing stories. Social media week I believe will be a platform to connect with the growing world of Social media.

    I would love to be part of the SMW travel story session. I hope to learn from the experiences of guest speakers on what travel and social media is all about even beyond the glamorous sense of it. I hope to cover stories here and within the middle East. Do I have what it takes, I would want to know.

    I WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK,2019 BECAUSE THE EVENT PROVIDES A PLATFORM THROUGH WHICH INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES CAN LEARN FROM OTHERS . REVIEWS FROM THOSE WHO ATTENDED LAST YEAR,SHOWS THE EVENT PROVIDED THEM WITH IDEAS AND INSIGHT ON ACHIEVING GOALS THEY NEVER THOUGHT WAS ACHIEVABLE AND IF PRIVILEGED TO WIN A TICKET, I WOULD BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL

    I WOULD LOVE TO ATTEND THE FIRST SESSION PANEL ENTITLED “STORIES OF NIGERIAN TRAVELPRENEURS: STARTING A TRAVEL AND TOURISM CAREER” BECAUSE IT WOULD AFFORD ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO KNOW MORE ABOUT NIGERIA’S TOURISM INDUSTRY AND THE OPPORTUNITIES THEREIN FROM PEOPLE WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN THE INDUSTRY. AS A RECENT GRADUATE OF HOSPITALITY MAGT. AND A YOUTH CORPS MEMBER, I BELIEVE THIS EXPERIENCE WILL NOT ONLY HELP ME DECIDE ON THE ASPECT OF TOURISM TO CHOOSE AS A CAREER PATH , IT WOULD ALSO AFFORD ME THE OPPORTUNITY OF NETWORKING WITH PROFESSIONALS THRIVING IN THE SECTOR

Ajala Nene would appreciate your reply, thanks! 😊
