What does it mean to be a journalist or a news writer in today’s social media-driven world? This is what Richard Dy of Richard Dy Communications (RDC) and Managing Editor of Fox Sports’ Digital Media Division, aims to answer through his seminars and workshops. Richard Dy Communications aims to inspire hope and faith sustained by love in order to create “change that impacts every sphere of society through different platforms – social media, books and public speaking.”
In partnership with Polytechnic University of the Philippines and CitiGlobal, Richard Dy Communications launched a free seminar/workshop on responsible journalism. The seminar aimed to reach, teach and inspire students to become excellent and responsible print and online journalists. This was scheduled last December 6, 2016 from 9am to 3pm at the university’s AV room and at least 60 students participated.
The seminar entitled “Where Inspiring is a Way of Life” included topics such as news writing, sports writing, feature writing and photo journalism. To facilitate these topics, we invited Philippine Star’s veteran Sports Writer Joey Villar, Spin.ph Senior Photographer Jerome Ascano, Bandera’s resident Journalist Frederick Nasiad, and RDC’s very own Richard Dy.
Overall, the seminar was a success. Everyone who attended the seminar/workshop learned valuable skills that would equip them to be better journalists in the future. Through this workshop, we met several passionate young individuals who are hungry to learn and innovate as part of a growing organization that aims to be the best in its industry.
CitiGlobal believes that our today’s youth are full of talent and promise. The partnership with Richard Dy Communications allowed us to empower our future storytellers by giving them the power of communication and language. We are extremely proud to be part of this amazing activity and we are looking forward to more of these in the future.
