A Coca Cola-stic day

Sometime back, there was a joke doing the rounds that our former president met the Queen of England and she said to him “It’s fantastic to meet you” He thought her favourite soda was Fanta and since his was Coke, he replied “It’s cocacolastic to meet you too” ha ha ha !

Any who, today we (Public Relations Club) spent the afternoon at the Coca Cola offices in Nairobi participating in a session themed It’s our brand too. The aim was to understand what teens and young adults look for in brands that are relevant to them. It was quiet an interactive forum with students from two other universities taking part.
We were picked by a shuttle from town, provided with packed lunch and soft drinks as we were driven to Upper Hill where the offices are located. I felt celeb-ish.
At the offices, we were warmly received and I must say this company has a wonderful, relaxed corporate culture. No wonder they rake in such huge profits!

when I grow up, I want to work at Coca Cola.

The three universities present made great presentations and if I may say so myself, going by the thunderous applause, Ernest Wamboye and I made our colleagues and university proud.

and we had lots of fun too …….

It was an awesome session and I believe fruitful after all, Coca Cola got to learn what their customers want, by listening to them.

how was your day?
