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 privilege of listening to Mike speak on two occassions in the last two years. He was by far one of the best speakers at both events. Mike has the full package – he is intelligent, witty, insightful, energetic and colloquial – a rare combination. I look forward to hearing Mike speak again in the near future.

I saw Mike speak at Workshop @ IMC CPT 2012 & Ecommerce Conference JHB 2013.

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.

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!
