On Friday we were fortunate to host the social media – Lagos event at Ravensbourne. It was to conclude the week of social media events being held around various parts of London to discuss the benefits of using social media in business.
The event consisted of inspired talks exploring how Africans across London and the world have been incorporating social media in their social, political, economical and creative lives.
Students were given the opportunity to attend the event and join the live stream to gain insight into social media and network with some great leaders in their respective fields.
“A connected Africa has huge implications for the world. During Social Media Week London we will look at how social media impacts and is being leveraged by a continent of over 1 billion people. Social Media Week London brings together thought leaders from various industries, hence serving as an excellent platform to discuss the opportunities for collaboration” Ngozi Odita, Founder of AFRIKA21 and Executive Director of SMW Lagos.
“At Ravensbourne we see social media as a very exciting space, as a level playing field where our highly creative student population can develop, mix and share ideas with a global array of companies. We are immensely proud that Social Media Week Lagos selected Ravensbourne as the venue to showcase Nigerian innovation, the event will give our students and the UK tech community a unique insider’s view into one of the world’s fastest growing mobile and tech markets.” Will Pearson, Director of Technology at Ravensbourne.
