Economist journo to Sanlam Summer School
Namibia Economist journalist and sub-editor, Nyasha Francis Nyaungwa was chosen by Sanlam Namibia to attend the annual Sanlam Summer School for Financial Journalists which will take place from 28 October to 1 November near Pretoria.
Sanlam Namibia Group CEO Tertius Stears said the Summer School was Sanlam’s response to the King II Report on Corporate Governance in 2003 that called on the private sector to help develop investigative journalism for the improvement of corporate governance.
“Sanlam Namibia Holdings also shares that same vision and would like to grant an opportunity to our Namibian journalists to benefit from this platform,” Stears said.
International media trainer Liz Bartlett will be the anchor lecturer at the summer school, with other guest speakers doing presentations. In addition to Bartlett’s vast expertise to draw from, delegates will also be addressed by and participate in a simulation exercise presented by the Johannesburg School of Finance. Each delegates is expected to present an assignment which will be assessed individually.
