Monday Moments Ep 7 – Of Viral Strategies and Legs…

I have almost recovered from the Girls Rule moments last week. The fact that over half the Creatives I met last week were ladies did not help matters at all. So Finally I have had to accept what the Fluid Tees sheriff  says on his blog, “WOMEN are stronger and must be respected no matter what!!”. No more need be said.

Now, my dear Friends. Does your Viral strategy have legs? And what do you do when your first month in office comes with major network failures and a sleeping customer service department? Oh, and have you figured out where that Venture Capital is coming from? You might also be wondering, what’s new at Intervangelist EA.

Lessons from a Venture Capitalist

“Hello Sir, would you be kind enough to give me some Ten Million Shillings?”

“What for?”

“Well, I have this business idea which I think is really lucrative.”

From my encounters with the Nokia ladies at one end of the city, to watching the iHub ladies on the other end trouncing 17 other male dominated teams in the quest for Kshs 1 Million venture funding, I was humbled by how well our tech sisters are doing in this field.

The Tech field is so dominated by three legged creatures that for a long time it has been almost terrifying for any lady trying to venture into it. The hostile stares, the ridicule, the hate speech; I have seen (and sometimes even took part in) it. I will tell you this my friends; the Tech ladies who I had the pleasure of meeting last week were not just intelligent; they were BEAUTIFUL!! Continue reading ‘Monday Moments Ep 6 – Girls Rule!!’

Monday Moments – Who wants to be a Millionaire?

Christmas is coming early for most people this Year! Zain and Safaricom are at it again, like big boys! While they do that, their dealers are crying foul for being the victims in this tag of war. All I know is, I can now call, and call, and call…and then check my balance just to be sure it’s not a hoax. I have had an interesting week at work, really interesting. Just read on… Continue reading ‘Monday Moments – Who wants to be a Millionaire?’
