Upcoming Talk: CreativeMornings Johannesburg


I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be speaking at the inaugural CreativeMornings Johannesburg event, courtesy of an invite from the organisers Nicework.

I’ve chosen the topic “Cookie Madness and the Channel Bias: Exploring how complexity is getting in the way of brilliant creative communication”, which should be a lot of fun. The event is planned for Friday 27 September from 8:00am and will take place at the Nicework offices: Second floor, The Anchor Building, The Media Mill, 7 Quince Street, Milpark.

Generous sponsors Molecular Bars will be providing all attendees with delicious coffee, and tickets will be available from Monday the 23rd, you can register here.

Get in touch with the organisers if you have any questions, follow the event on Twitter or read about CreativeMornings here, or check out the excerpt below:

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals.

I hope to see you there!

What Clients Say...

I organised TEDxPretoria on 27 September 2013 where I invited Mike to be a speaker and share his ‘Idea worth spreading’. Although he also had another event on the same day he showed up early, enthused ready for action. Mike not only has amazing talent as a presenter, he is also knowledgeable and passionate. I would definitely recommend him.

I saw Mike speak at TEDxPretoria.

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.

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.
