Sean Riley, the CEO of Ad Dynamo was Heavy Chef’s featured speaker at this month’s event, hosted at the Microsoft headquarters in Bryanston, Johannesburg. Presenting on The Power Of A Tweet, Sean looked at the ways in which this platform is making a global impact as a social network and as a marketing tool for brands.
Heavy Chef guests braved the bad weather and traffic to attend the event and gain new insight into just how powerful 140 characters can be. This month, we ran a new competition at the event in partnership with Nokia South Africa, and gave away a Lumia 930 smartphone to one lucky tweeter – Nicolaas a.k.a #The LegoGuy. And as always, guests enjoyed complimentary red and white wine sponsored by eco-friendly winemakers, Backsberg.
One of the highlights of the evening was the illustration, created by cartoonist, Ique Langa. Creating it on-the-spot as Sean was presenting, Ique captured the key take-aways in graphic format. Ique you finished off the evening perfectly – thanks!
