I started my career in tech-support at Microsoft in Sydney before being shipped around the world to various Microsoft subsidiaries, training tech support staff (USA, UK, Sth East Asia). Upon returning to Australia, I took my passion and knack for education and invented a character for TV called Ms Megabyte as a way to encourage all Australians to embrace technology. This led to many years on the Today Show as the IT Reporter; national magazine columns and radio spots; best-selling books and one of the first consumer websites to sell banner ads (HP, Intel, nineMSN, travel.com.au) Once my national media profile was established, I began accepting requests to MC and Speak at events and conferences, and found this was my absolute passion. Again following the direction the market was pointing me, I accepted invitations from people in the conference audiences to work directly with their businesses on the innovation and digital marketing topics I specialise in. For the past 15+ years working with this diverse range of industries and business sizes, I've built a knowledge base which is as wide as it is deep, yielding a unique set of skills which I bring to every consultation. I can take a look at your online profile across your website, LinkedIn, Facebook to ensure you're making the most of each platform to build your brand. To find new customers and extend your relationship with existing customers. I continue to be extremely passionate about the event industry, coaching upcoming speakers, executives and subject-matter-experts to maximise the impact from their presentations. I'd love to assist you prepare for an upcoming presentation. As colleague Glenn Capelli once said : "If Yvonne was an app, you'd put her on your home screen!" "She does her research and really cares. Our audience, staff, exhibitors and speakers love her. Yvonne is professional, hard-working, loyal and we highly recommend her." Retail Global CEO
