Cerebra Announces Social Business Africa 2013

Last year we hosted the incredibly successful Social Business Summit at the Holiday Inn in Sandton. This year we’re taking the conference to a whole new level, bringing out global thought-leader Dion Hinchcliffe as our keynote speaker, and expanding the programme to include five practical workshops on the topics of social leadership, social marketing, social technology, social governance and law and social analytics.

We’re calling the conference Social Business Africa as a reflection of our ongoing commitment to providing well-researched insights into social business developments across the continent. If the term “social business” is still a little confusing, we define it as the application of social platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) and social principles (e.g. Authenticity, crowdsourcing, collaboration, sharing, etc.) to all facets of the enterprise in order to understand, engage and activate a constantly evolving workforce and consumer market. You can also check out the posts I wrote on the subject of social business recently here and here.

We will also be sharing invaluable insights at the event that we’ve gathered from our partnership with Fuseware on the Cerebra Social Business Africa Report – a in-depth look into how the Top 200 Companies on the African continent are using social media to engage their customers, and social collaboration tools to connect their staff. This report will soon be available for purchase on the Cerebra website, but conference attendees will receive a free executive summary!

This event is one not to be missed, and if the success of last year’s event is anything to go by, it will be incredibly valuable. If you’d like to book your ticket (they’re selling fast), pay a visit to www.socialbusinessafrica.com now!

What Clients Say...

Mike’s keen interest in understanding our market, combined with his enthusiasm for his areas of expertise, made for an engaging, entertaining and highly relevant presentation. His energy was positively infectious and his talk received huge compliments from our audience. Mike was an asset to our event and an absolute pleasure to work with.

I saw Mike speak at Property Keystone - Own Tomorrow.

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.

Mike is a one of the most insightful people in the industry I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Not only does he have a global perspective on social media, marketing, and business that is compelling, but he has clearly made it actionable in South Africa. It was terrific to work with him and his team to help deliver Social Business Africa 2013.

I saw Mike speak at SBA 2013.
