#GoogleMoms breakfast – what was said and learnt (STORIFY)

March 4, 2014

This week I was part of the first Google event for moms in Johannesburg (called #GoogleMoms), where we learnt about apps, productivity, search and online safety.

It was a cold rainy day in Joburg, but it’s obvious we were warmed up by great coffee and knowledge. I used Storify to pull some tweets from the day (please note the amazing cupcakes that Google gave us!)
