Through my authentic voice, I can bring different ideas, perspective and diversity to your content.

What is Content marketing?

Content marketing is the creation and distribution of useful, intelligent, thought-provoking, engaging and informative content. It’s communicating with your existing and prospective customers without overt selling. Content marketing solves problems, educates and informs, helping develop long-term relationships and brand awareness.

As a  professional, I recognise the importance of remaining agnostic. As an expert, I aim to curate technical resources that help the accounting and bookkeeping community achieve the best outcome for them, rather than a product or service I have a material connection with. In the interests of disclosure and transparency I’m sharing with you businesses I may have a material connection with. They may have provided me with gifts (books, gift bag, swag), payments in kind (event tickets, free product access), or monetary payments ($$) in recent years.

The ‘Cloud Stories’ podcast shares stories of people operating in the cloud community – including developers, cloud integrators, end-users, solution providers and business consultants. Together we share a 360-degree insight into this evolving business phenomenon. Listeners can pick up tips, tools and tactics from stories shared, and we gain a deeper understanding of how people are using cloud solutions and, in turn, can effectively and efficiently use this new-found knowledge in our own businesses. All of which is why ‘Cloud Stories’ has been described as the coolest accounting podcast ever!

Businesses use the podcast as part of training material for staff, and it counts as CPD. Read more below.
