Professor Jenkins is also well-known speaker and has featured on several global platforms including TedEx.
Professor Jenkins, on Friday, will focus on the art of Transmedia storytelling, best practices, tools and techniques African communicators can use to transform narratives and elevate brands.

We want to raise a new generation of African storytellers who will tell the world about “What is right with Africa.” Beyond this, we are aiming at impacting global brands and influencing the bottom-line of our organizations.” Curator and Founder, Samuel Osei said.
