Zain invited me to attend their second Social Media Event, which took place in GUST last night.
I got their at 5:15PM – which is 15 minutes late than their scheduled time… but due to unavoidable circumstances they did not start till after 6:30PM!
I realized half way through that I forgot my good camera AGAIN! 😦 But I always carry a small one in my bag, so… something is better than nothing!!!
Anyways… The event is organized by both; Zain & Al Hareer.
They started with handing our certificates to the attendees of the first forum, including me, then they broke for prayers… afterwards, Mr. Abdullah AlSaif of AlHareer Business Center gave an introductory speech to the audience.
The event was planned to host a discussion panel by three blogs in Kuwait… to share their blogging and tweeting experiences with the audience!
The starts of the night; @P0ach (blog), @MubarakEsmail (blog), and @his_hers_q8 (blog)… with @DrAlZamel (blog) who was the moderator of the discussion panel!
It was a fun and light event… with lots of examples given by the guests… and some interactions with the audience too. They also talked about how blogs turned into business and how it works, with all of the good, the bad, and the ugly! They also got into discussing FourSquare and how to turn that into a business and marketing tool… giving two thumbs up to NBK‘s move, as a first entrant to use it in our market 😉
P0ach surprised me.. or wanted to have some actions to be exact and asked the microphone guy to approach me explaining “Ansam has a question!”
My reaction? Well… I held the mike, I laughed a bit and was like “Abdullah, I do not have a question!” – It was a funny moment and P0ach is such a sweetheart!
The last speech was given by Mr. Mohammed AlMuhaini, one of Zain’s Social Media team. Very informative 😉
P0ach! You are an inspiration to many and one of my best bloggersphere buddies 😀 😀 😀 You are full of energy and smile *mashallah* Thanks for the shout-out LOL
