Since 2018, CFC Big Ideas has served as a contractor for the US Agency for Global Media (USAGM), offering training sessions for media professionals and media conference participants around the world. What started in 2017 as a one-time training session in Odessa for journalists from post-Soviet countries has now evolved into a considerable part of CFC Big Ideas’ services.
CFC Big Ideas partners with USAGM to achieve the agency’s goals of training media professionals and organizing affiliate conferences. By coordinating and executing international media training sessions and conferences for USAGM-affiliated media, CFC helps support freedom of expression and independent media worldwide.
As the contractor, CFC Big Ideas is responsible for securing a suitable location, transportation, communication with participants, equipment, meals, lodging, planning and distributing an agenda that best fits event’s goals, materials preparation, local point of contact, access to location, finding trainers, as well as any other facilitative responsibilities.
