The second Girl Geek Dinner took place on 21 February 2012 at Higher Ground Restaurant. What an amazing venue! Gorgeous view, amazing food and a stunning welcome drink – the restaurant dazzled us.
It is amazing to see the success of the Dinners and how we have grown from our first one – Geek Girls (and Guys!) of Jozi turned out to show their support and we more than doubled our event attendees.
Our first speaker was the dynamic Lana Strydom, who heads up Digital Marketing and Media for FNB. She gave a very interesting talk on FNB’s approach to social media and how it has helped grow their brand and sales.
Second up was the fabulous Tiana Cline, Editor of Girl Guides. Tiana is passionate about women in tech and she gave an amazing overview of some of the new gaming devices on the market. It certainly got people talking and we look forward to having Tiana speak again at future events.
A big thank you has to go out to our amazing sponsors who supported us – without them our event would not be possible: Higher Ground (Welcome Drink), Body Thrills, Bos Ice Tea, Get Smarter, Worker Ant Production & Design, Elizabeth Arden, O Magazine, Connect Magazine & T-Thyme Catering.
All in all a stunning night was had with many ladies chatting, making new contacts and simply enjoying a night out!
We look forward to the continuing success of the Dinners in Jozi!
