Digital/Social Director
July 2014 - Present (4 years 6 months)
Social Media Strategist (Coca-Cola Secondment)
Surry Hills, Australia
January 2013 - August 2014 (1 year 7 months)

Senior Analyst (nm Incite)
February 2011 - January 2013 (1 year 11 months)
My day-to-day tasks included blending qualitative insights with proprietary Nielsen tools (such as BuzzMetrics, a social media monitoring tool similar to Radian6) and my own knowledge to provide consumer insights to my clients.

I am very passionate about providing actionable recommendations that can help clients not only benefit from a marketing perspective, but from all sectors of their business. I run projects end-to-end and most enjoy presenting the final report to my clients. I have worked with and developed relationships with a wide range of clients, both local and global, ranging from agencies to retailers and FMCG companies. I enjoyed helping these clients to garner a greater understanding of their consumer, and find whitespace opportunities for their brand and trends within their respective categories.
