I am a huge fan of 27 Dinners and after kicking them off here in Durbs in 2007 they have grown quite considerably in Durbs. Cath & Briget will be orkanising the May event. If you in Durbs, I highly suggest you make a plan to get to La Bella on the 28th May. Here is all the info you need:
27dinner | Durban | May 2010
The 27dinner movement aims to bring together informed, networked individuals with a common passion for technology, media and business in an informal but valuable real world space.
On the 27th day of every month of the year since January 2007, hundreds of interesting people from diverse walks of life have collected under one roof over good food and wine to celebrate a common passion for technology, media and business.
These 27dinners have fast become a staple entry in the calendars of South Africa’s smartest, funkiest and most networked entrepreneurs, business owners, designers, developers, geeks, marketers and even good old corporate jacket-and-tie’s.
The dinners provide these fascinating humans with a unique opportunity to share ideas, debate industry hot topics, meet new contacts and even fire up collaborative endeavours. Slowly but surely companies are realising the value of engaging an audience like this in an authentic conversation (Cluetrain Manifesto-style).
We’d love to meet you – regardless of whether you simply want to come along and participate, share your latest venture with like-minded people or even sponsor the event.
Like all infamous Durban “scenes” though, we’re full of apathy. So, with that in mind, get off your butt, sign up and come along to the next Durban 27Dinner. We’d like to thank all of you for attending the last 27Dinner, in February, and hope all of you will come along for the next one!
Our second 27Dinner in Durban for 2010 will be taking place on 28 May 2010 (we took a little poetic licence there and shifted it to the Friday, as most people find it easier to attend a Friday night event!).
For May, we’ve decided to showcase some brilliant Durban women, who are:
Lungile Zondi from http://www.myshuttles.com/ who will be discussing her awesome initiative that’s going to make travelling in South Africa a breeze, especially during the FIFA World Cup 2010!
Briget Ferguson of http://www.myr260car.co.za/ and winner of this year’s Nerdies, will be talking about her brave and quirky approach to a social media campaign
Date: 28 May 2010
Time: 18h30 for 19h00
The Important Stuff: Cash bar and buy your own dinner! (Hey, I told you we’re low on sponsors :P)
RSVP – sign up on the 27dinner website here: http://www.27dinner.com/ and RSVP to the event here: to be inserted once event is up on website
Lastly, please pass this on to anyone else you think might be interested!
Hope to see you there!
Cath Jenkin and Briget Ferguson
