Nicole is a highly motivating and talented trainer and social media consultant. I have had the pleasure of working with Nicole both as her student in Social Media Marketing and as her colleague at Queensford College. Nicole is well prepared, resourceful and is able to share inspiring insights on all things social media and marketing. Whether she is dealing with a large crowd or in a smaller intimate setting, Nicole is able to command the attention of the room and always makes herself available to assist people in their understanding and competence. I highly recommend Nicole as a colleague and business partner.

Thanks again for a great session. [It] got us all thinking & talking about how we can improve our engagement with our members & industry partners, together with the wider public - via social media - by means of more thoughtful generation and sharing of our content and advocacy work!

I've spoken at events for General Assembly, Women in Digital, The State Library of Queensland,  The QLD Department of National Parks, Sports and Racing; Apple, Edgeware Creative Entrepreneurship, Interactive Minds Brisbane, a variety of Queensland schools, and on a panel or two. I have presented on:

  • social media strategy and benefits
  • best policy and practice
  • content marketing
  • personal branding
  • entrepreneurship and freelance business
  • online community management
  • risk and crisis management
  • digital citizenship, and
  • cybersafety and privacy.
Edgeware has hired Nicole twice to facilitate workshops on the use of social media, the first of a general nature and the second with a focus on e-marketing. In both cases she showed a comprehensive understanding of the topic(s) and the capacity to show us their relevance to innovation in small business. Importantly for us, she is also across issues of intellectual property and commercial ethics, and has a range of cases and anecdotes at her fingertips.

Nicole ably communicated her passion for her subject, along with the facts, in a way that was relevant to the whole demographic. We certainly intend to make further use of her services.
