The year is starting to pick up again with many of the WeAreTENZING family getting back to what they do best. Vince Aso, Kayla Imrie, and the family at Zambrero continue to make huge steps in their mission to tackle world hunger, Jono is off to Thailand for a driver’s dream experience. Tyla Nathan-Wong and the Black Fern Sevens have jumped up four spots in the World Series standings after they finished second in the Sydney Sevens and Jeriah Mua, Tevita Mafileo, and Ajay Mua all have been pushed through a tough training during their time with the Chiefs Under 20’s camp.
Jono Drives The Best
Jono Lester is jetting off to Thailand for a two day BoP test for the Thailand Super Series at Buriram.
This will give Jono the opportunity to drive many of the worlds most spectacular cars including both the Ferrari 488 & 458, Audi R8 LMS Ultra, Lamborghini Huracan & Gallardo, Porsche GT3-R & 997, McLaren 650S, Reiter Camaro GT3, as well as Toyota V8s and TA2 TranZams.
Many of these cars people could only dream of driving let alone be racing.
Best of luck mate.
Social Tips and Tricks
One of the biggest social trends of 2017 was the increased use of live streaming and I don’t see this slowing down anytime soon.
Going live is very effective at engaging with a larger percentage of your followers. If any of you are interested in using the live function I have compiled a short list of tips to keep in mind if when using it.
Firstly be professional by being prepared. Practise so that you are prepared and comfortable and can deliver naturally. Also if you are speaking to the camera make sure you are in a quiet space, having high-quality sound is important.
It’s quality over quantity when it comes to length of your streaming video. Trying to maintain your social followings attention is one of the hardest tasks at the moment, so keep it short and entertaining.
Don’t panic if you make a mistake! Making a mistake can actually be beneficial if you handle it well. Just laugh about it and move on – it will come across very authentic.
Vince and Kayla Tackle World Hunger
In 2017 Vince and Kayla teamed up with Rise Against Hunger and Zambrero to help feed those in need. Both are very passionate about helping the less fortunate and the opportunity to impact so many lives was a chance neither could pass up.
Since Vince and Kayla have joined the Zambrero family and begun creating content and sharing Zambrero’s amazing work through their social channels, Zambrero has seen a record rise in their social following.
In addition, Zambrero’s Plate 4 Plate campaign, where the company donated a meal to someone in need for every burrito or bowl purchased, has reached the incredible milestone of delivering 20,000,000 meals to people in need around the world.
An amazing achievement by Vince, Kayla and the team at Zambrero, congratulations!
