More event details
It's not just politicians, celebrities and brands who are harnessing the power of social media. Twitterers, bloggers, podcasters and Facebook users from more than 80 countries are getting behind Earth Hour in unprecedented numbers to say they will 'vote Earth' and resist climate change.
Whilst Earth Hour's online "friends" might be saving the world, there are plenty of people out there who still haven't joined the social networking party. If you're yet to create a Facebook profile, navigate the blogosphere or understand Twitter, our April Networx will enlighten you!
We're delighted to welcome three talented online aficionados to our panel:
- Asher Moses, Technology reporter for the Sydney Morning Herald and former Young Online Journalist of the Year.
- Rae Mozejko, Senior Account Manager at Communicator Interactive, the marketing company responsible for the mobile component of the 2007 Smirnoff Experience campaign.
- Phil Beringer, the Brand Manager at Snack Brands Australia responsible for the 'Samboy is Back' re-launch.
This entertaining and inspiring evening will give you plenty of opportunities to network, seek expert advice and ask questions.
Sydney Morning Herald
Asher Moses has been a technology journalist for almost ten years, starting out freelancing for computer magazines and websites in high school. Two and a half years ago he quit reviewing gadgets for CNET.com.au to become technology reporter for The Sydney Morning Herald and other Fairfax publications. He covers any technology story the average punter would find useful or entertaining and these days he is particularly interested in charting efforts by marketers to invade new media websites. Last year Asher was named Young Australian Online Journalist of the Year by the Walkley Foundation.
Originally from the Mid North Coast, Rae moved Sydney to study Liberal Studies at The University of Sydney. Whilst studying she worked as a Campaign Manager at a boutique marketing firm in Darlinghurst, before moving into the marketing office where she headed the Apple, CBA and Fox accounts as well as launching a social networking website. After returning to university to study a Bachelor of Laws at UNSW, Rae joined Communicator Interactive with experience in digital, direct and event management marketing, where she now handles day to day accounts, new business and internal production. If Rae's not in the office coordinating colourful spreadsheets, she'll be DJing at the next office party.
Snack Brands Australia
Phil Beringer has recently returned to Australia after a successful ten year stint in marketing roles in North America. As Marketing Manager on international brands such as Twinings, Ryvita and St Dalfour, as well as a couple of market leading North American brands, he gained valuable experience in the developed markets of the United States and Canada. Since returning, Phil has been working on well known brands in the Snack Brands Australia portfolio, including Samboy, Thins, Cheezels, Kettle and others.
