Last Wednesday night I went along to a networking function that had some guest speakers discussing Social Media and Web 2.0 stuff… it was an interesting night because for once I actually knew about the topic.
In all honesty I was surprised about the knowledge of the main speaker. I checked-out his website prior to the event and it was crap and had no mention of Social Media… so I was impressed when he knew his stuff.
The other good thing about the night was that I was joined by the lovely Talita… I usually go to these things alone which forces me to talk to strangers, but it was nice having a
wingman wingwoman for a change.
Here’s a pic of me networking:
The funny thing about that group from the photo was that they thought my business was all about SMS marketing – one of the ladies said “I think I know you from that function at …” and after she went on about it for a while I felt bad saying “nope, that wasn’t me” … so I just went a long with it.
All-in-all a good night.
