Fare thee well, Anthony.

‘Medium Raw’ & ‘Kitchen Confidential’ are books that I read a number of years ago; your story and the way that you told it (along with the many biographies/autobiographies of my favourite inspirations) have been part of the rich tapestry that have inspired me to continue to trailblaze life in my own way, to embrace the inner weirdo that I was always so afraid of growing up and the light-globe of realization that I’m not alone. Brash, open & honest. It’s like looking in the mirror. Although you’re clearly a lot more deadly handsome in black & white 😁😜

You are you and I’m sorry that you felt that this was the only way. Scrolling my Social Media Newsfeeds today, it is clear to me that you have made such a positive impact on friends in my inner circle & beyond who also inspire me. Rest well, big fella. You’ve earned it

Ash Hazell – Brews, Biochemistry & Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co.

Posted on Updated on

Craft Beer podcast: Ash Hazell – Brews, Biochemistry & Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #180 Ash Hazell (Head of Brewing – Colonial Brewing Co)

Meet Ash Hazell! This rad dude, close friend of mine and wonderful soul is the Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co!

Yep, Ash Hazell oversees brewing at both Colonial Brewing Co breweries in Port Melbourne on the east coast of Australia and Margaret River in the west.

2 weeks back I jetted down to Melbourne-town for my yearly MRI brain scan and surgeon’s appointment, so last minute I dropped Ash a line and locked in an afternoon of drinking beers, brewery tour and podcasting with this legend!

Like many of the world’s best brewers, Ash fell in love with home-brewing beer from his very first taste of a mate’s home-brew at 16. Fiercely determined to then make this thing his life, completing chemistry degree with units of biochemistry and microbiology, Ash Hazell began his journey into professional brewing at one of Australia’s first craft beer breweries, Little Creatures Brewing Co, then founded Barrow Boys Brewing and was eventually head-hunted to take the reins at Colonial Brewing Co.

We cover off on Ash Hazell’s earliest ever beer memory, what inspired him to become a brewer in the first place, the Colonial Brewing Co Crosby Stills & Mash Gin Infused IIPA, South West Sour and their latest top secret brew, the delectable chocolate, honey and rum infused Violent Rumble.

And then of course, we had a few more beers… 😁🍻✨

Yum, Yum, Yum… Super, super podcast chats… Let’s get into it!

Does your Biz/Brand need a new Social Media Strategy?

Posted on Updated on

My name is Dan Wilkinson. I am a global award-winning social media strategist, university lecturer, speaker, podcaster and content producer with experience across FMCG, Travel, Beer/Alcohol brands, B2B, Not-For-Profit, Augmented Reality, Tech/Apps, Fintech, Health & Wellness, Cosmetics, Health Insurance & more.

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 Awardsspeaking at Social Media Week – Miami, multiple global Kinsale Sharks Awards (Silver, Bronze, Bronze), case studies featured on both the Instagram and Twitter Global Business BlogsShorty 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:

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
