I am so excited to finally share with you our news and photos from the #capetownbrandsonline event we hosted 16 January at Shared Cape Town. As you all should know by now, I am incredibly passionate about entrepreneurs and marketing – especially event and social media marketing. That why this event was such a big deal to me!

About this Event

Our 70 beautiful guests (including Joanne Strauss – just saying!) were hosted by local influencers and industry leaders on how to grow their blogs, personal brands or business right from their phones. In today’s age of information and apps, it really should be that easy!

In this cocktail-style evening networking event and workshop we heard from the experts in the start-up space, long time bloggers, new bloggers, business owners and professional photographers, the ins and outs on how to establish and grow a personal brand or business merely by using the free tools available to us all.

Thank You to our Sponsors

First and foremost, I am incredibly passionate about women, mothers and ENTREPRENEURS. The events I choose to host would not be possible or anywhere near as wonderful as they are if it were not for the amazing and generous supportive local sponsors we have.

Thank you to ALL of you! #localislekker
