Director of Marketing, Flinders University
Simone came highly recommended by our Marketing & Communications Manager and absolutely lived up to expectations. Simone is a very informative and engaging presenter that we’d absolutely call upon again for training our staff in all things social media. Our three-hour session absolutely flew by and our entire group, with varying levels of exposure to the subject matter, learned so much.
Board Member – Seed Foundation Australia
Simone has the knack of making the complexities of social media understandable as well as interesting. She is very knowledgeable in this field and her communication style is relaxed and very relatable. She would be a great asset for any conference wishing to either update their attendees on social media trends and strategies or to provide training on specific aspects of social media in breakout workshop format. Highly recommended.
CEO, Zone High
I have heard Simone speak on a number of occasions and have attended her workshops relating to social media. Simone has an easy-going, personable speaking style, engaging and interesting. She knows her content inside-out and is happy to share tips, ideas and experiences during her presentations. I would highly recommend Simone for speaking or training engagements.
Managing Director, Suntrix
Simone is a fantastic and engaging speaker. She has a very clear and informative delivery and gets straight to the point with real experiences and narratives. The audience were engaged and found the presentation of enormous value. We look forward to having Simone speak again at our future workshops and seminars.
Manager Events & Sponsorships, Australian Hotels Association SA Branch
I was super impressed by the level of knowledge that Simone Douglas has in the social media space. I saw Simone speak to a room of 100 CEO’s, small business owners and entrepreneurs. Simone elegantly and expertly shared distinctions and gold nuggets with me and the others in the room which will have a direct impact on how we DO social media moving forward. Simone also challenged the room to either 30 days of video post onto social media, or 30 days of trying something different on social media. I’m choosing option A. I highly recommend Simone for your keynote, training and/or as a social media strategist to you.

What people have to say about Tamara
I came across Tamara at a Brand SA social media masterclass she was hosting. Her talks were incredibly informative and valuable to our staff. I subsequently used Social Media AOK’s service to help assist with on of the many media social media projects I was working on. Her professionalism is exceptional, particularly with working on difficult or sensitive subject matters. It was a relief to find someone to trust with such high profile projects. She is transparent with information, gets great results and is a real pleasure to work with.

Tamara has an obvious skill set and knowledge base in social media marketing that I can recommend to other businesses seeking her services.

Tamara presents social media training for job seekers in our group training sessions. Her presentations are very engaging (lots of hands on learning) and had everybody listening intently even though they had their social media pages open! I would recommend Tamara for her depth of knowledge on Social Media and optimising it for job seeking activities.
Principal Advisor, Parternaire
Tamara recently managed the online social media activation campaign supporting a business breakfast I ran for 275 local business people. Her strategy of engaging with delegates in the lead up to the event and interacting via a Tweetwall during the event helped elevate us to rank #2 on Twitter nationally and #1 locally (trending higher than the earthquake in Adelaide overnight). This was a real marketing scoop for my business — thank you so much Tamara!
