Holla fellow readers! πŸ˜€

Though it may kinda outdated, but today is really the day that I have the chance to pen 2 blog posts and this is the first one. Sorry about that 😦

As you can see above, that’s my name tag for the recent Global Social Business Summit 2013 which was organised on November 7-9, 2013 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and I was there as a Rapporteur representing the organising companies which is The Grameen Creative Lab, The YY Foundation, and Youth Trust Foundation – myHarapan πŸ˜€

The reason of why I put “Introduction to Social Business 101” as the post title is because of the event was a real classroom for me to really learn about social business as a whole πŸ˜€

On top of that, it was organised in-conjunction with 2 big events in my life which was my week on curating one of top Malaysia’s tweeting accounts which is TwtUpCampus and also to celebrate my 19th birthday with my significant half πŸ˜€

On top of that, my Twitter account and the account which I have curated before – TwtUpCampus, were officially selected to be a part of the Summit’s Official Social Media Squad representing MakeSense and France-based danone.communities πŸ˜€

Besides the Plenary Sessions of the Summit, there are also 20 Focus Group sessions for the delegates to join in and I have been assigned to minute for a session moderated by Zoran Puljic – Founder of Mozaik Foundation, from Bosnia and Herzegovina πŸ˜€ The focus group session was to discuss regarding Post-Crisis Rebuilding on Social Business Models to Help Citizens Organize and Advance their Communities.
