More of what you can expect at alt.conference

I gave you a preview of what you can expect at alt.conference about a week ago. I have managed to finalise the program for the two events. Well, pretty much. I can’t really decide which event is likely to be more interesting. There is a terrific bunch of speakers lined-up for both the Cape Town and Joburg events. I am also really excited about the final session of the day. We will have 3 very dynamic people facilitating a sort of idea-storm session which could be pretty interesting indeed!

So here are more details for the Joburg event:

Session Time Speaker/Facilitator Topic
Welcome and intro 09:30 to 10:00 Paul Jacobson Welcoming everyone and outlining sessions
Session 1 10:00 to 11:00 Justin Spratt  The ISLabs initiative 
Session 2 11:00 to 12:00 Nic Haralambous Experiencing SA Rocks
Lunch 12:00 to 13:00    
Session 3 13:00 to 14:00 Carl Spies Enterprise-level social media implementations
Session 4 14:00 to 15:00 Walter Pike  Dynamics in Social Networks 
Session 5 15:00 to 16:00 Max Kaizen Ideastorm session

… and the Cape Town event:

Session Time Speaker/Facilitator Topic
Welcome and intro 09:30 to 10:00 Paul Cartmel Welcoming everyone and outlining sessions
Session 1 10:00 to 11:00 Tim Shier Online Reputation Management – not an introduction 
Session 2 11:00 to 12:00 Shawn Jooste We’ll let you know! It will be good.
Lunch 12:00 to 13:00    
Session 3 13:00 to 14:00 Henk Kleynhans A closer look at RICA
Session 4 14:00 to 15:00 David and Marc Perel Opportunities for video blogging
Session 5 15:00 to 16:00 Gaby Rosario and Allan Kent Ideastorm session

There is still space at both events so feel free to sign up if you are interested in attending. It costs a mere R250 to attend the event and there are payment details on the front page of the site.

I would be remiss for not mentioning our sponsors. We have a terrific group of sponsors who include the following:

  • Bare Creative who designed our very funky logo;
  • AlterSage who are sponsoring labels and have helped us promote the events;
  • Vox Telecom which has generously sponsored the Joburg venue;
  • New Media Labs which has generously sponsored the CT venue as well as a host of other goodies for CT attendees;
  • Skyrove which has sponsored an access point in Cape Town; and
  • Nokia SA which has sponsored a little something for Joburg attendees.

We have one or two other sponsors who have sponsored t-shirts and one or two other things too. A very big thank you to the sponsors!

  1. Hi

    I remember that in a blog last year Bev called me a lunatic talking about giving away control in social media, we are talking at the same time – it would be so cool to be listening to each others talk. I’m still a lunatic – BUT i’m sure i’m right! LOL

    Could it be that we will be 100% different. Thats whats so cool about this space.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Hope to see lots thers
