Social Media for Social Change – 2010 Graduation

This year RLabs celebrated the 3rd annual graduation for the ‘Social Media for Social Change’ class. The event was held in spectacular fashion at Granger Bay Hotel School. The graduates were accompanied by their partners and they all looked amazing.

“You guys all look  absolutely beautiful, stunning, gorgeous and shiny and bright” said Rene Parker, director of Rlabs as she addressed the graduates.

Rene and Monique Ross from She’s The Geek fame were the Master’s of Ceremony (or is that Madam’s of Ceremony) on the night. These two ladies were also very instrumental in the training and facilitating the Mom 3.0 class of 2010. There were 18 ladies who successfully completed the course. See picture below
