FNB helps journos read financial statements
” Honorine Kaze of The Villager said, “It was great to see the easiness that one can navigate with while writing financial stories. Professor Nixon pointed out stories which we might miss and advised us on how to make a financial story easy for our readers. I am very thankful to FNB for arranging that training. It was helpful and well organised.” Francis Xoagub of the Windhoek Observer said the workshop was superb and refreshed his knowledge of financial reporting. Said Xoagub, “Considering the challenges faced by financial journalist, there was no shortage of intelligent and even humorous questions from the group of reporters from both the electronic and print media assembled in theworkshop, which seasoned educator Nixon facilitated. We really got the opportunity to learn from the horse’s mouth about latest trends in financial journalism. This was an outstanding programme. It offers constructive ideas that I can immediately apply, and important resources, including colleagues to network with in the future.” The training took place over the course of two days and started on Monday 24 March. Members of the media were presented with certificates at the end of the workshop and even got an opportunity to pose questions to FNB Namibia Chief Executive Officer, Ian Leyenaar.
