In 2010 we had the inaugural Rock Your Life Social Media awards. In 2011 we have had some wonderful new entrants and nominations and definitely some of the 2010 people revisiting. This year it’s been a bit of an award scoop in fact and I want to acknowledge someone who has built their brand tremendously in 2011, who has literally been everywhere, a champion for their cause and just helping so many people.
In fact in 2011 they have won the following awards:
Best You Tube Content
Most interesting content
Most prolific social media person
and was the founder of the winner of Best Fan Site
Congratulations to Matthias Gelber. Born in Germany and living in Malaysia where Matthias is known as ‘the green man’ he is committed to sustainability, greening your environment, producing non toxic waste from business and his own pet project – green building materials. Matthias has been a speaker and SAGE at Rock Your Business in Malaysia & Singapore this year and has been heralded on Magazne Covers and by government and royalty in the Philippines and Malaysia for his efforts. In addition he is one of the featured luminaries in Emily Gowor’s Transformational Leaders book released in July 2011. Well done Matthias:
The lady who won this award never believed anyone would vote for her. Lena Lim is a social media expert based also in Malaysia. She is an expert at setting up and managing social media and web based content for your enterprise. Her tweets are interesting and profound. Lena would be a huge benefit to any business that wants to raise their profile globally via Social Media.
Last years winner – the word artist Emily Gowor has again stormed home in this catagory. A brilliant and profound sharer of the truth Emily has again been a regular and intensive blogger sharing her wisdom from the journeys she has had and people she has met. If you are looking for profound content and writing then you should probably speak to Emily and get her writing for you.
Best Fan Site
Eco-warriors Malaysia was started by Matthias Gelber a few years ago and has grown to over 3,000 members. Every few weekend the team jumps off cyberspace to go planting trees in the peat marshes near Kuala Lumpur. This group not only shares wisdom and community on line but takes it off line where they make a real difference. Congratulations Ecowarrior team. Hopefully your win will inspire others in their home cities to assist the environment.
