Journalists and others in and around the media have a vital role to play in a country or region's successful development.
We deliver expert training and consultancy which can be a catalyst for positive economic and social change. This is because a well-run media, staffed by those with high professional standards and equipped with the right skills, underpins democratic values.
Better media helps to hold politicians to account, resulting in a better informed, more objective populace. It makes possible the free-flow of information, raising public awareness of key issues like human rights, economics, business, the environment and health. And it improves overall knowledge, ultimately leading to improved living standards in emerging economies.
Our media training and consultancy is often central to, or an important component of, major economic and social development projects in the developing world.
