This weekend I discovered Smilebox! While our children danced the night away at their matric dance, we parents (excitedly? nervously?) sat in front of our computers checking Facebook for regular uploads of photos. In between Facebook updates (Teenagers don’t use Twitter!) I found a wonderful online photograph album, complete with turning pages and your choice of background music. You can also create scrapbooks, recipe books, calendars, slideshows etc. Have a look at this one I made at 2am… it was very quick and easy.
With plenty of year-end events coming up at school, why not put all your school photos into Smilebox and create a super-professional presentation for parents and children!

I am delighted to announce that Radical Learning has been selected as the runner up in the “Most Innovative Small Company” category of the 2010 South African SMME Awards. We received our trophy at a glamorous gala dinner in Johannesburg on Thursday.
In the challenging field of Education and Skills Development in South Africa, we believe that success will only be achieved by a combination of factors: innovative thinking; high levels of motivation; consistent hard work; integrity and strong partnerships. We want to say thank you to our partners – together we are able to achieve so much more!
The very deserving winners were Renu-Karoo Veld Restoration cc, an extremely innovative business which develops indigenous seed orchards, to restore mining and grazing damage in the Karoo region.

Today we heard the wonderful news that Radical Learning is one of the five finalists for the Most Innovative Award of the 2010 South African SMME Awards (Small, Micro and Medium-sized Enterprises).
It takes a team effort for an achievement like this. Our Radical Learning team is the ABSOLUTE BEST! Thanks to all our staff members, partners, clients and friends. Without you this wouldn’t be possible! Read more about the awards below.
SOUTH AFRICA SMME AWARDS COMPETITION
Africagrowth Institute, in partnership with Central and Provincial governments, Municipal Administrations, private sector institutions and other SMME Support Agencies, is pleased to introduce the 2010 South Africa SMME Awards. The idea behind the Awards is to identify and recognise the best performing SMMEs in the country. The Award ceremony showcases the country’s best SMMEs in the trade, services and industrial sectors. The overall winner will receive the South African SMME of Year Award. The Awards ceremony will take place on the 21st of October 2010.
The Awards are the highest honours that can be bestowed to SMME owners in the country. Winners of the Awards will, therefore, feature prominently in local and international media as champions in business innovation and master-drivers of South Africa’s development. The main goal of the Award program is, therefore, to help the South Africa SMME business sector grow and prosper, and to market South Africa as an investment destination for the rest of the world.
