Every organisation wants to end of a year on a good note. Unfortunately Mobile Monday did not succeed – it ended on a FRIGGIN GREAT note !
It was meant to be THE end of the year event to attend and that was an understatement. Those who registered and missed it, really did miss something special.
Mobile Monday was sponsored by 8ta (www.8ta.co.za) and Samsung (www.Samsung.co.za) – so when you combine these two ingredients and add the “usual suspects” that attend Mobile Monday, you know its gonna be spectacular.
Evening started of with Zoltan Miklos the 8ta Executive Mobile: Converged Networks. Zoltan is accountable for developing the long term vision & connectivity for Telkom Mobile network. Basically a techie of note that was allowed out of the server room briefly.
Next up was Steve Ambrose who is the MD of Strategy Worx, a consulting company specialising in making business sense of ever changing world. Steve’s presentation was titled “Forget Cairo, the next revolution is still coming” and showed how the next evolution of Internet is actually in Fixed Line via Fibre Optics and not Wireless Internet.
Samsung then decided it was time to give away Galaxy SI and Tablet P1 to two lucky winners who handed in their business cards – there were two very happy Samsung users that night !
Paulo Ferreira was up to the mic. He is the Head of Product Management & Business Solutions at Samsung responsible for Mobile software apps, Business planning, Product Management & marketing. whew ! I am surprised he even has time to attend events with such a busy work load. Paulo took us through Samsung product and how they have evolved to lead the market with Android based devices.
Finally Emmanuel Castis, the 8ta online ambassador, sang two of his songs to the applause of the crowd who entered the Networking and Partying mode of the evening.
Mobile Monday rocked on until late into the night and after wrapping things up, 8ta gave each person their own goodie Bag with cool swag including 8gb memory card – you can never have enough of those !
So thank you 8ta and Samsung for an awesome night. Thank you Mobile Monday crew for really making it happen for us this year and taking Momo to new heights. We wait to see what bigger and better things you have up your sleeves for next year and I can truly say that MoMo is THE premier networking event that every single business, brand and company absolutely MUST be part of in any way.
