Heading to the first ever Localist Jam this week as part of the Social Media Club Auckland or #smcakl crew, I didn’t quite know what to expect. Localist promised a panel of ‘wise business people, digital gurus and successful entrepreneurs’ who would inspire our digital appetite.
I’m not sure about the digital appetite part, but the speakers certainly did offer some inspirational nuggets about staying true to your vision and the power of good communications.
The panel consisted of Qijing Wong of Borderless Productions, Ronald Biddick of RJB Design, James Kemp of GrabOne and Ed Cruikshank of Cruikshank Design, with broadcaster Wallace Chapman doing an excellent turn as MC.
Each sought to inspire the audience by sharing their paths to success, which were as varied as their backgrounds.
