Give your career a kickstart with #DentyneSmile

I know exactly what you’re thinking:

Sam, what does chewing gum have to do with a tech blog?

Dentyne recently launched sexy new packaging. I think it looks a lot more sleek and finished and far more powerful on the shelf. That’s really the focus – power. I don’t need to quote the The Secret to highlight the power of a smile to you. Feeling confident, positive and happy makes all the difference.

To celebrate the powerful new packaging Dentyne are wanting to help celebrate powerful (and smiling) women too. So they’re offering two lucky ladies the chance to give their career a kickstart with their #DentyneSmile competition. The chewing gum brand has joined forces with actress Minnie Dlamini to showcase the true power of a smile.

Entrants need to upload a photo of their most powerful smile to either the Dentyne SA Facebook Wall or to Twitter or Instagram using #DentyneSmile so the selfie can be found. To make sure you get noticed get your friends and family to like and comment as much as possible! The winners get their own personal 30 second digital advertising campaign that they can use to promote their business or land their dream job. They also get an exclusive lunch with Minnie to chew her ear off and get some advice. The price also includes an Apple iPad 4 Mini (that costs around R8000!), a copy of Girl Boss, a clothing voucher to the value of R6500 (because power dressing for the win!), a spa voucher and a Dentyne product hamper.

The competition ends on 22 May (my birthday!) so get snapping those smiling selfies asap! 

I'd love to chat to you some more.
