Category: #FollowFriday


Twitter has been a great resource for expanding my professional network. But I never could have imagined making amazing friendships.

Having connected through twitter, met in person as various events, and now meeting regularly as friends, I have realised what an amazing and motivated person Jason is. He is truly an inspiration to us all.

A few of the things I love about Jason:

  1. He is a talented networker – charming, practiced and I suppose his love of people is an added bonus. He is a testament to how to connect with people, and his philosophy is to help out every person he meets in some way.
  2. He is a giver. This is great, and as I mentioned before, he is out there to help people first, before asking for anything in return. This philosophy puts him in great stead for the future, which I imagine being a “gifting-driven” economy. Good on you, Jase.
  3. Jase is great to talk to, always has something interesting to say, or someone amazing to talk about. Meeting with Jason is fun and engaging, sometimes I don’t want to leave.
  4. Finally, he is an asset – a connector. I am an ideas man, and have only just started building my network. I have two ideas at the moment waiting to be acted on. Both of which, I wish only to spark, not manage myself. I have asked Jase whether he can connect me with people to get them started – which he has done a great job of. Thanks Jase.

If you want to connect with a great mind, find Jason here:

Thanks, Jase, for being a great friend.

This #followfriday is dedicated to Camille Strowger of BezzeraEspresso.

I have had the pleasure of great conversation this week, especially about #coffee – so fascinating! It all started through twitter, where I discovered a confident and outspoken person talking to some of my tweeps, it was @BezzeraEspresso. So I struck up a conversation.

Camille is a young entrepreneur; very passionate about coffee and people. She recently started selling Bezzera Coffee Machines in New Zealand and has done a great job to promote the conversation about coffee. Coffee is, apparently, something many people are passionate about, and love talking about.

Camille tells me that she became very passionate about coffee when she made her first latte, while working in a café years ago. She now talks about it to everyone she can, drinks it all day, and sells machines that are beautifully engineered.

If you are a coffee-o-holic, or just love talking to a great conversationalist, connect with Camille at @BezzeraEspresso.

Thanks Camille for the great conversation, I look forward to buying myself a machine soon.

Want to know more about Camille and Bezzera Coffee Machines? Follow her on twitter, find her on Facebook, visit her website and have fun talking to Camille.
