Together@MIX08 Pre-Conference Event

After a very hearty breakfast and many cups of coffee, Hans Verbeeck (Developer Evangelist for Microsoft EMEA) welcomes us with some opening remarks.

MIX08 is about bringing influencers together to share announcements and get feedback. Together@MIX08 (today’s pre-conference event) is a value-added ‘package’ for international MIX08 delegates.

w00t – We’ve just been given very sexy Zunes – Hans says it can fit neatly into an envelope! LOL!

Excellent presentations and panel discussion follows about Expression Blend 2.5 – around designers creating Rich Interactive Applications with Silverlight 2.

What Clients Say...

Mike is one of the most convincing digital brains in the South African industry with a keen understanding of the impact and value that social media has in business and society. His measured, authentic and pragmatic view on the world comes to life when he speaks in a refreshing and inspiring way.

I’ve known Mike Stopforth for the past decade and on a dozen occasions or more he’s addressed various events my company hosts in the media and brand communications space. In a sea of mediocre speakers, Mike is one of a kind. His subject knowledge is encyclopaedic relevant and cutting edge, he adds huge value to the digital and social media debate. I saw Mike speak at Future of Media conferences.
Jeremy Maggs Presenter and Executive Producer, Maggs on Media
Mike is irritatingly good at public speaking. Irritating because he has an uncanny ability to read the audience and pitch the content and tone at exactly the right level. Irritating because he delivers profound insights in a common-sense manner, and because his wry sense of humour makes each presentation more like a chat with a mate than a lecture. I saw Mike speak at IMC Conference, Johannesburg 2013.
