On 29 June 2012, GBG went to Malang for the first time. Supported by Stasion community in Malang, Google Business Group had a fun sharing session at Universitas Brawijaya. Danton Prabawanto, GBG Surabaya Manager opened the session with introduction to GBG, followed by Yansen Kamto on quick insights on Indonesia digital landscape and a look into the potential for small medium businesses. Henky Prihatna, Google Indonesia Country Consultant, had the most fun with the Google+ topic and introduction to Google AdWords.
The day after, 30 June 2012, the first GBG Surabaya Workshop was held at Auditorium Gedung Indosat Surabaya. It was attended by 80 people in total, who are mostly entrepreneurs and SMEs. Started at around 9 AM, participants were very enthusiastic to get the knowledge about Google Business Group and Google AdWords.
Later on, Aileen Apolo, Head of Outreach from Google South Asia continued with the topic of Google+ Page for Business. The interesting part was that Aileen delivered the materials online through Google+ Hangout, live from Singapore. The audience was keen to find out and try Google+ features and the session was closed with Q&A session.
Thank you Surabaya & Malang, it has been a lot of fun. We'll see you again soon! :)
