Meredith's passion for social media began in 2003 as one of TAFE NSW's first teachers to begin to utilise and assess blogs, wikis, podcasting amongst other online technologies to support both students and teachers in distance and eLearning solutions.
Her ability to take the technical and decipher it in real terms for the 'ordinary person' saw her become a TAFE NSW Flexible Learning Leader and eLearning mentor to support teaching staff in integrating technology into the classroom to enhance learning.
She saw her first streaming video in 2005 (before YouTube) and she knew the world was changing and business was going to need to move with the times.
2009 saw her open her own consultancy, Video.Social.Marketing and having watched the progress of social media as a business tool and communication channel, she began to evolve her service, offering education for the business market as a sought-after and entertaining speaker.
She's passionate about ethical and authentic business practices, and weaves these themes through all her work.
Meredith delivers practical, engaging and easy to follow keynotes, breakfast seminars, workshops and mentoring programs, and is committed to bringing her audience the very latest and most relevant content.
In her presentations, Meredith artfully unpacks and links the learnings using images and stories from her experience working within multinational corporates. She is also known for being refreshingly open and honest in sharing lessons, humour and stories from her own life.
