@Miss604 Book Signing @LondonDrugs Georgia and Granville! #LD604
April 10th 2010; on a beautiful Vancouver day; we were at the London Drugs at Georgia and Granville for the @Miss604 ( Rebecca Bollwitt ) book signing event. Miss604 has just written a book called “ Blogging to Drive Business “ and she was at the London Drugs store to sign books and give her advice to wannabe bloggers. It was a great event. Well attended by a very enthusiastic crowd with lots of questions. Rebecca was her usual helpful self and took time to answer all questions. Nicely done!
I personally ( I love that this is my blog; I can push LD; but because kenskool.com is ME and MINE; I get to have an opinion!!! ) think these events really show that London Drugs is into the world of social media. We have many people and vendors that also believe this, and this is why we get to have a bit of fun and bust out and try an event like this; an event that was only communicated to people via Twitter and Facebook. What a world we live in!!
As usual, we have many people to thank;
Thank You to the @londondrugs Georgia and Granville Store staff and management. Thanks to Store Manager Daryl, AVS Manager Howard, Photo Electronics Manager Joe and his staffer, Matt. Thanks for allowing us to take over the department!! Also thanks to Russell from the computer department at the Kerrisdale location!! Huge help buddy!! Loved the way you actually explained what was being given away – I am buying a netbook!!
Other Head Office Staff that need to be thanked; Cedric, our Merchandise Manager of Computers for the Netbook Donation and to Andy our Business unit Manager of Photo Electronics for the Nikon Camera! Joanne, our Marketing Manager, for allowing us to actually do the event at all! Thanks for the support!
Thanks to @EthicalBean for their continued support of London Drugs and to @GenuineHealth for their support also. Can’t do these without the Vendors who love social media as much as we do. You are both true pioneers and I really like working with both of your companies!
I know I am missing people; please do not take it personally; these events could never run without a tonne of people doing their part.
Great event guys!! I can hardly wait for the next one.
Enjoy the pics!
Ciao for now @Kootenayborn
