What’s the story behind Change Your Story?

This innovative programme builds on the success of the Change Your Story workshops in Lagos during March, 2105. The concept was developed in partnership by Dan Mason and Taiwo Obe, Commonwealth Fellow, respected journalist and founder The Journalism Clinic. The Journalism Clinic is dedicated to raising the next generation of first-rate journalists and content providers in Nigeria.

The training is designed and delivered by international trainer Dan Mason, with content that has been tried and tested — and constantly updated — during workshops in countries including Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, Kenya, Sri Lanka, China, Iraq, Georgia, Qatar, Dubai, Malawi and elsewhere.

Dan is simply amazing. If all tutors were like him, our country would indeed be a better place. Ese Aluko — Journalist and Change Your Story participant.

Thank You Airtel, sponsors of Change Your story
The mission to train 100 new multimedia journalists for Nigeria — who will take back their skills and experience to newsroom in key Nigerian cities — has been made possible with the fantastic support of Airtel, Nigeria’s leading mobile operator.

According to the Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Airtel Nigeria, Segun Ogunsanya, the initiative is a glowing testimony of the company’s commitment to creating empowerment platforms that will enrich the lives of all its critical stakeholders including the media:

“The epic growth of smart phones and social media has turned news upside-down. To stay ahead, journalists need to create compelling stories which would not only be shared on social but also easily accessible on mobile devices.

“It is our delight to support journalists in Nigeria to perform optimally in this mobile age. Media audiences will also get better engaged while media owners should expect increased traffic to their platforms.

It’s a win-win for everyone.”
