The Global Conference — In Attendees’ Own Words
A brilliant opportunity to learn more about work of our colleagues from different countries, learn about best practices, tools and techniques. It is the most useful conference that I attend in many years because I was able to use some new knowledge immediately in my work. Thank you!
The conference has enabled me to feel again very deeply how important it is to do journalism. At times I was very emotionally influenced. The conference reminded me that I need to work harder and do more. Thank you for all.
GIJC was to me the biggest assembly of troublemakers anywhere in the world. What an explosive conference -– it allowed for true fraternity among investigative journalists, ideas sharing, networking, collaboration, learning and capacity building. I’m eternally grateful to the organizers. I’m fired up and inspired to do more investigative reporting.
The conference was simply amazing. You did an incredible job in bringing together, training and empowering hundreds of journalists with different backgrounds. It provided a tremendous opportunity in learning skills, debating hot issues or simply networking.
I feel extremely privileged to have attended these sessions. What I could not learn in ten years
of my professional life, this conference taught me much more than that. For a journalist from a
developing country, such conferences are a once in a lifetime opportunity.
