It could not have been another better timing for SMB5. With the Christmas season coming, and everyone in the mood for party and giving, I’m very grateful that SMB5 could be part of a meaningful project to help the children in need.

After a successful SMB4, everyone was excited to attend the next SMB. And its heartwarming to know that after every session and after meeting more new friends, everyone is always looking forward to the next one. This surely keeps the team going and motivated to bring better and more meaningful SMBs.

When Derrick sent out the news of SMB5 taking place in ten days time, I’ve received many messages and email asking what’s the agenda or programme line-up for SMB5. I was speechless. This really shows the positive progress of social media here in Singapore. There are many out there who wants to learn and understand more about social media. And they do see that SMB can be such a platform for quality sharing and learning to take place.

At SMB5, it was planned to be a casual gathering and a time for everyone to catch up. The team had hoped that conversation and discussion will take place among the many of you who were there. I did manage to catch up with some friends and met a few new ones too. As for quality discussion, personally, I felt that the setting wasn’t as suitable as the previous SMB. But still, a great event with great company!

As part of the team, I hope to contribute as much as I can and help drive SMB to greater heights after every session. And this cannot be done alone. Its part of the team effort, your participation and kind contributions.

If you were at SMB5, we would really love to get your feedback.

At SMB5, we also managed to somehow put a little social back to social media. This I will share more about in another post, just because I’ve got a personal story to tell.

In the meantime, if you’ve another 3 minutes to spare, why not help the children in need? Samsung Hope is not asking for your money, all they hope for is your support by a simple pledge.

Take a pledge for Hope this Christmas

Hope Takes Off !
