On Monday I attended Social Media Week's 'Opening Reception' hosted by Chinwag. It was a good chance to meet some of the fellow startups who are attending SXSW this year.
Towards the end of the evening I met Ogilvy's Leo Ryan and we spoke about DeadSocial and Ogilvy's new venture Social@Ogilvy. Before leaving Leo very kindly handed me a red envelop! In the envelop was an invitation to attend the Social@Ogilvy launch party on the London Eye....
On Wednesday I arrived at the London eye just before 5.45pm and was quickly moved into the pod for 'startups'. There was a nice mix of startups and businesses in our pod ranging from Twitter to Psonor.
Champagne & Sushi was served from the second we stepped onto the London Eye to the moment we left. The conversation was of the highest standard and the entire event was a great experience.
I would like to thank everyone at Ogilvy for inviting me to the event and wish Social@Ogilvy every success.
