My Strategy For Your Success

online Strategy workflow

I like to follow my 5 Rs strategy with all of my clients.  Starting from the the most important stage of the process, the message.  Once you have your message right, let’s work out the best type of digital content to represent your message.  Next is the right platform, and the right platform is where your audience is whether it’s a single focus or multi platform approach. Next, target the right audience, really get to know them and understand their needs. All of this hard work pays off when you publish your media at the right time, once you know your audience, this will become obvious.

The Right Message

Let's start with a strategy session to define your outcomes and results.

In The Right Content

Now let's plan the most effective type of content to deliver your outcomes.

On The Right Platform

Choosing the "correct" platform is crucial. Let's define that now.

To The Right Audience

It all hinges on having eyes on your message, but it's the right eyes that matter.

And At The Right Time

Catch your audience while they are online and maximise your reach.

My keynotes are engaging, informative as well as inspiring. Hear the story of how my life changed at 27 and how I went on to change the lives of over 12,000 people, just like me as a second chance learner. Or with my more than 25 years in IT, listen and be inspired on how you can make the most of technology in your business to foster change and support the adoption of digital culture to succeed in our modern world. And as always, learn how I use storytelling to make a positive change for individuals that combine together and make our world a better place to be for all of us. Storytelling is powerful stuff.

Committing to Life Long Learning

As a life long learner, I've had to recreate my life several times over. The world is in a state of flux and I speak about how when we are able to continue to move forward to learn, there is nothing we cannot overcome.

Technology Fostering Culture Change

Utilising the lessons I have learned while overseeing and managing 12 figure projects in the education sector, I've learn't a thing or 2 about technology that can be scaled and implemented into any sized business.

Storytelling To Effect Change

Storytelling has the power to connect, inspire, change, engage, transform and educate. My keynote topic is how you can utilise storytelling in your lives to effect change in both your personal world and the greater world.
