“My name is Florence Bodex Hungbo and it’s my honour and privilege on behalf of Bodex Media, to welcome you to this event.
We are delighted to have you participate and share in our 2nd Bodex Social Media Hangout 2021. That many of you could come a long way to be here is a reminder to us all, how important the use of internet is and the quality of news we push out. I want to say a big thank you all for coming”.
“Bodex media is committed to the global objective of using the social media in shaping our society with constant awareness and with gathering like this, on the good use of social media in nation building. We want all media personalities, media houses, social media influencers, digital marketers, content creators, PR Consultant, TV/Radio host, fans and other stakeholders, regardless of race, creed or circumstance to achieve their full potential in changing the negative narrative of the use of social media in our society and to make Nigeria a better nation.”
“Our objective therefore, is to create and nourish a platform that will re-orientate operators in the online journalism space and build a network of thoughtful leaders who will be objective in news selection and propagation in a friendly environment. Hence, our task is to make the above possible by bringing professionals with years of experience to speak to us, provide practical solutions with step by step assistance to get us on the right track.”
“Just to let you know that we mean business, we are honoured to have the presence of the Honourable Commissioner of Information and Strategy Mr. Gbenga Omotoso, National Head, Silverbird Television, Mr. Charles Kalu, City People Founder, Dr. Seye Kehinde, our very own Mr Macaroni,, Senator Adetola Akinola of Glitz Group of Companies, Radio Goddess Ify Onyegbule and others to speak to us.”
“Let us be prepared, relaxed and learn. Do not be in a rush as we’ve got you covered to leave better than you come. This year’s theme is ‘Digital Media: Freedom of Internet use and the right of citizens”
Yes, we all have our constitutional right as regards freedom of speech but, how comforting and free is your speech? You will find out from one of our panelists who is a legal practitioner, Mr. Bosun Osifowora.
To add to the wow factor of what BSMH is known for, my team and I have also worked day and night, effortlessly monitoring difference media platforms to know who is deserving to be honoured with the exceptional Bodex Media Award. We hope you will be the lucky one. Wink.”
“As a media practitioner, let us learn to support and promote our colleagues trying to be in the news for the right reasons. Promoting and supporting our colleagues trying to be in the news for the right reasons. Promoting and supporting our colleagues will only enable them make more sales and in turn, pay their dues. In case of not being well appreciated for your support, do it for God and for humanity. Everything doesn’t have to be about money but fulfillment.
We are the news maker and news breakers. We should be valued, adored and respected by other stakeholders, but we also need to respect ourselves by being professional at all times.
So, on that note, Do Not Be A Tool For Harmful News To Be Broken, Rather, For The Good News To Be Broken. Do Not Tell A Story That Will Limit You Rather, Tell The Ones That Will Uplift You And Stand You Out.
