#LGMC2013UK Leadership and Governance for Media & Communications executive programme UK 2013 Study Visit

This spring, the Journalism Leaders Programme team at UCLan started collaborating with the prestigious School of Media and Communication at Pan African University in Lagos, Nigeria, to launch another innnovative course for forward-thinking senior professionals who want to development their companies and themselves: the Leadership and Governance for Media and Communications programme.

As part of the 10-week certificate course, participants are taking a week-long  study visit to the UK to explore the impact of digital networked technologies on UK communication businesses and the business of communication - and what the lessons might be for forward-thinking Nigerian organisations who operate in an increasingly connected, competitive and globalised context.

Led by François Nel, the founding director of the Journalism Leaders Programme,  the group will have opportunities to explore the challenges and changes at some of the world's most innovative private and public sector organisations in London, Manchester and Preston, including News International,Talk About Local, Unilever, BBC, The Cooperative, Manchester Digital Development Agency, Trinity Mirror and UCLan, the first modern university in the UK to be listed in the QS World Rankings.

In line with the JLeaders ethos, participants won't only be 'talking digital,' but also 'doing digital'. So, while many of our conversations will be confidential and the Chatham House Rule will apply throughout, we'll still be sharing (some of) our adventures and impressions through this live blog and through the Twitter hashtag #LGMC2013UK. We look forward to the week of learning - and welcome questions and suggestions from others who share our interests.
