Coaching the South African Presidency in Social Media

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.

Vusi-MonaI found Mr. Mona to be incredibly insightful and passionate about exploring social media management.

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.

    Hi Mike

    Would loved to have given more info but please appreciate that much of this work has a sensitive nature. So it wouldn’t be too responsible to ‘tell all’ as yet.

    Mike, Please get Vusi to do something about the 6 people the Presidency follows back on Twitter.. it’s unAfrican to have over 2000 speaking to you, and you only speak back to 6 of them.. that’s just dealing with the cultural aspect..
    won’t bother to get into the social media relevancy part of that..
