A little bit about me

A conference speaker and author on building relationships, I also run various workshops with teams privately on how to use relationships, online and off, as a way to grow your business connection base and network online effectively. I am also one of 500 "LinkedIn Influencers" worldwide along with Richard Branson and Barack Obama to name a couple.

As New Zealand's only LinkedIn Influencer, I now have around 300,000 followers and my articles have had nearly 1.5 million views on LinkedIn alone. You can also find my work on the Huffington Post.

I am a member of the Newmarket Rotary club and as someone who has gone through breast cancer, I support cancer related charities.

My books "Marketing with Social Media",  "Start with Hello" and "Learn Marketing with Social Media in 7 Days" (Wiley) are all available online or in bookstores.

You can find my articles published on the Huffington Post, LinkedIn, Mashable.com, the NZ Herald, NZBusiness Magazine, Her Business Magazine, Management Magazine, Human Resources Magazine, and Social Media Examiner.
