I drive strategy for medium to large size enterprises, both agency and client-side, our business is going from strength-to-strength and that growth has lead us to currently have capacity for 1-2 new inspired clients to join our stable.
Over the past 2 years, my biz Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet!, has worked with Cancer Council Australia, Moula fintech, The Bravery, Dos Equis (via FWRD Agency), Cherry Blooms global cosmetics brand, Mahlab Agency (a global B2B digital client, hbf insurance), REBORN Agency and Transplant Australia providing a range of services including a full audit of organisational digital ecosystems and assets, development of 2-3 year strategic roadmaps, Best Practice Social Media Playbooks, development of Digital Media Reporting frameworks, Business-As-Usual/Campaign ideation, organizational training workshops, Issues & Crisis Management Escalation procedures/management, development of brand influencer networks and setting up of agency/client internal/external ways of working systems and processes.
My portfolio from the past 2.5 years includes APAC winner at the 2016 Facebook Awards, speaking at Social Media Week – Miami, multiple global Kinsale Sharks Awards (Silver, Bronze, Bronze), case studies featured on both the Instagram and Twitter Global Business Blogs, Shorty Awards finalist in NYC & much more.
Prior to stepping back into freelance world, I was the Social Media Lead for SapientNitro Australia, changing the face of social media for a range of international brands including Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Peroni Italian Beer, Miller Genuine Draft, Bulmers Original Cider, Strongbow & many more.
As to the type of client(s) we’re looking for?
Either client-side or agency-side and the 3 key things that I look for in new biz opportunities/roles/clients are:
- Digitally progressive – you are a digitally progressive business/brand or you want to be (if you’re not there yet then, you want to pay someone who is and can bring you up to speed).
- Corporate Culture/Champion of the People – you foster a culture of inclusiveness from the top down and that is evident in the energy/experience of the people who work with you at all levels.
- Champion Great Work – contractors and employees describe your business approach as one that fosters big ideas and proactivity. Industry leaders not followers.
As an example, I recently I wrapped a short-term contract as Head of Social Media at Soap Creative on the Microsoft, PepsiCo (snacking) and Ferrero portfolios, including the likes of Doritos, Tic Tac, Kinder Surprise, Nutella, Xbox brands and many more.
Every new opportunity or organization that I bring our business to, I must be feel like we’re both contributing and learning at the same time – bringing industry expertise to the table, whilst also continuing the evolution of our experience and professional toolkit.
So if the above blog article sums up the opportunity that you’re about to approach us with and what you are/your business is striving to be, then I/we want to work with you!
I am currently Bondi Beach-based, but we work with clients around Australia and below you’ll find a portfolio overview of previous clients, global award-winning campaigns successes and my own Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! digital presence.
Let’s do this!
