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Though it may kinda outdated, but today is really the day that I have the chance to pen 2 blog posts and this is the first one.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