In another effort to fulfill his philosophy of continual contribution to advertising education, information, knowledge and professionalism, Mr. Chris Doghudje has published yet another book titled Beacons for Advertising Practitioners.
The book was launched yesterday, April 30, 2019 at NAN Media Centre, National Arts Theatre Annex, Iganmu – Lagos, the book, according to the author, “is an illuminating blueprint to guide advertisers, advertising agencies, and media owners in the performance of their respective roles in advertising.
He said: “Based on the wealth of knowledge and experience gathered from over 25 years of active participation in advertising in Nigeria, it can serve as a useful aid to practitioners and trainers, students, scholars and academicians who will also find it very useful.”
With 9 beacons for advertisers, 7 beacons for advertising agencies and 5 beacons for media owners, this volume is unparallel and unequalled in its educative role for advertising practitioners in Nigeria and possibly all Africa.
