November 5, 2010 Leave a comment

This week as many of you know I’ve been working out of our South African office in Johannesburg, and in particular presented 4 sessions at the McAfee Executive Summit here.

ITWeb, who co-sponsored the event were kind enough to give me a writeup on their site which you can enjoy at your leisure.

Thankyou though to all the customers and partners who came to see us and made the event such a success!

Bon Voyage!

“The Influence Project”…

I came across this interesting project which hopes to measure the level of “influence” people have online – Basically you register, then you try to get as many people as possible to register as well.

Yes, Steven Cobert’s going to win it for sure 😉

Still, if you want to partake, you could do worse than boost me up the ladder if you find my posts an speaking influential in a positive or negative way – 🙂

Not content with talking at them for the day, we plied them with good wine, crispy bread and sandwiches which you could never find the equal in Subway or Quiznos. We also gave out some homework, asking participants to complete a survey of their security concerns which came back with some interesting results: Read more…
