Third GBG Colombo Meetup
This time, the GBG Colombo has great timing since some Google folks are in town. There will be two speakers from Google Inc. scheduled to speak at the November GBG. Jana Levene – Emerging Markets Programs Manager, Google will be speaking about Digital Landscape Overview. The second speaker, Hadi Mohd Mini – Outreach Program Manager, Google will conduct a mini workshop on Google+ which is what I personally can’t wait for! And of course, bringing your laptop for the G+ workshop would definitely help.
