Antwerp – February 23, 2011 – Antwerp ZOO (of all places)
‘startupbreaks‘ – a group of young and dynamic entrepreneurs who want to help out and connect with other entrepreneurs – launched SM Secrets (Social Media Secrets). A night to connect with, and ‘learn’ what social media is al about, and what social media can do to your business. Through well casted testimonials from
- Princes_Misia – Marta Majewska on Twitter use
A gorgeous young vice president of Porter Novelli (Brussels Office) gave a strong impression and easy to use tips on Twitter.
- Isabelle Dumortier on Facebook use
Again – did they typecast – a young entrepreneur on the use of Facebook in your business. Taking the ‘stage’ for the first time Isabelle gave a strong personal story on how to use social media (like Facebook), implementing on a case study from ‘The Weekly World’, and standing up for her own strategy (which wasn’t the strategy from her boss!)
- Nick the Mey on LinkedIn use
Nick De Mey was bringing a story on how his own business is growing through efficient use of Social Media (LinkedIn). Again easy access tips and great knowledge sharing….[this would be a cool guy to have in the flat education section]
The audience got into a trance on using social media for Business – off course I was already convinced….but still nice to see my ideas aren’t that bad!
The second part showcased Mobile Vikings by Chris Demeyere and MedeMerkers and social media by Saskia Videler.
Chris made a stunning impression just by giving a brief presentation and pointing out: Mobile Internet is a right! (and a need for the future in my opinion). And Social Media is not only an online event, but also an off-line necessity.
Saskia Vediler gave an overview on the different social media use, and rounding up a great evening!
I hope to see more of these….
