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 did an outstanding presentation to the Discovery team on social media and its powerful and pervasive impact on society today. He provided a framework for companies like ours to think about social media as well as some practical tips and tools. Mike’s conversational style and humour went down brilliantly!

I saw Mike speak at Discovery Digital Thought Leadership Conference.

Mike spoke at the South African eCommerce Conference 2013 on the topic “The impact of social trends and technologies on the eCustomer” and was extremely well received with feedback from attendees such as “Best speaker of the day. Great Energy!” and “absolutely brilliant. would love to see more of his presentations”.

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.
