GiffGaff annual meeting of Staff and users

GiffGaff annual meeting of Staff and users

I am suggesting that GiffGaff have a once a year gathering of all who would like to Get Together (GTG) in a logical venue.


This is a well tested and tried method of promotion of a company.  O2 sort of do it with their Priority system for O2 users.


There are several advantages to this idea.


The main one is the promotion of their network and a place where people can get to see everyone connected with GiffGaff in an official but light heated way. 


Another advantage would be that GiffGaff users could swap ideas and I am sure some good would come out of it for GiffGaff.


There is an obvious place to hold this gathering … GiffGaff have some connections with a well known company “O2”. So the obvious place would be the O2 centre in London on a weekend day


Entertainment and refreshment could also be laid on and even if costs had to be covered by GiffGaff members with a small charge payable in advance from their credit I think there may well be sufficient takers for this idea.


Another way of covering costs would be to allow Mobile hone companies and accessory makers to promote their products. They would obviously like to show off their latest and best products to us all in the hope that we buy one of their products. A cheap form of advertising to an already interested audience.


GiffGaff come in for plenty of “Stick” on their forum .. Generally people seem to only write a post if they are having a problem or want to complain and this looks bad always.. I am sure there are far more users who are totally happy but you never hear from those.. Incidentally I am one of the happy ones, but, I use the forum to gain ideas and also to help others who are having problems.


So GiffGaff Company … What do you think of the idea ?


GiffGaff users … What do you think of the idea ?

It sounds like you are in a different league than most of us


I know someone who for the last few years has travelled to the SXSW music festival in Austin Texas. He pays his own way. I'll be happy enough to just read or hear what he says about it (including a whinge the other day about the airline changing the flight).


I voted for this idea out of sympathy and a desire to have another event I could decide not to attend - it kind of makes me feel I have friends and a hectic social life Smiley Embarassed

The Christmas party sounded great... Until you had to be 21 to get into the venue. Maybe next year it can be done in a venue for 18+
Was the Xmas party actually broadcasted I heard it was meant to be but I didn't see anything! To anyone who went are the gg team as nuts as they seem on utube? Smiley Wink

I seem to remember there was mention of it on the forums

It could be a big kind of conference idea- like question time. There could be a panel and then people could ask questions. It could even be done over a video conference kind of thing?
