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...

I have had the distinct privilege of sharing a stage with Mike on many occasions.

What sets Mike apart is his ability to package content so perfectly that not only do you enjoy listening to him, but you remember what he said months later.

He is smart, funny, handsome, likes long walks on the beach…

I saw Mike speak at Multiple.

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.

Having the pleasure of listening to Mike addressing – amongst others – the topic of personal branding, the word “extreme” came to mind when I think of him. Not only an extremely entertaining and engaging speaker, but truly gifted with being extremely knowledgeable.

I saw Mike speak at Internal digital strategy event.
