Speakers & Moderator Bio:
Vladimir Duthiers is a CBS News Correspondent based in New York.
Duthiers joined CBS News in August 2014 from CNN, where he was an international correspondent based in Lagos, Nigeria. While in the region, he covered the ongoing military intervention in Mali, the terrorist attack on the Amenas gas plant in Algeria, the trial and sentencing of the former Liberian warlord Charles Taylor at the ICC in Sierra Leone, the crash of Dana Air flight 992 and President Barack Obama's visit to Senegal. He has also reported from the Middle East on the Israeli-Palestinian crisis and from the streets of Bangkok during Thailand's political turmoil.
He was on the scene in 2012 as the Occupy Nigeria movement exploded into the streets of Lagos. Duthiers' reports focused on the economic struggles of ordinary Nigerians and the religious tensions surrounding attacks by the Islamist terror group Boko Haram that has killed thousands of Nigerians since 2009.
Most recently, Duthiers reported on the more than 200 girls kidnapped from their school in northeastern Nigeria by Boko Haram and was one of the first Western journalists to interview family members of the abducted children.

SAJA invites you to a panel discussion on Entrepreneurial Journalism
One thing is for sure: journalism today is not what it used to be. It’s a new game in a brand new playing field and no one knows the rules. This actually gives journalists unprecedented opportunity to redefine the future of journalism. But where do we start? How do we do this? Who are our strategic partners? To answer this and to help journalists create the future of journalism today, SAJA is proud to present a workshop on “Entrepreneurial Journalism” with a panel of esteemed entrepreneur-journalists, coaches and venture capitalists.
Join us on April 8th 2015 at Grand Central Tech, as we help you envision a simple, step-by-step implementation guide that journalists (and student-journalists) with rich functional knowledge of the industry can use to conceptualize, improvise and develop your own journalism start-up project - not another website, but a radical and disruptive business idea! The workshop will provide journalists a primer on the business framework and essential tools required to shape your ideas into a minimum viable product (MVP), ready for venture capitalist funding.
