Over the past few months The South African Presidency have been speaking about improving their communications to the South African public by getting involved in social media. In fact, I found out over twitter that this was a topic of conversation on 5fm a few days ago.
I can confirm all the hype now after I sat with Mr. Vusi Mona, Deputy Director General: Head of Communications, from the South African Presidency. Over coffee at the King Shaka Airport we discussed the strategy to implement this new communication vehicle into the The Presidency.
I found Mr. Mona to be incredibly insightful and passionate about exploring social media.
Mr. Mona had this to say about our consultation session together:
“Thanks Mike. I derived lots of value from our discussion.”
I am looking forward to serving our country in developing their new social media communication strategy.
