Elenore's Bio

After twenty years in two major corporates, covering a host of marketing roles Elenore decided it was time to go out on her own.  What started out as consulting turned into a successful marketing business (with a big emphasis on events) and somewhere in that journey, social media began to grow in terms of activity and interest. After doing it for everyone else, Elenore decided it was time to empower businesses to do it for themselves.  She launched a series social media classes to help people get Social Media working for their business.  It targets smaller businesses, as the bigger companies tend to have agencies doing the work for them. That said, there have been a few bigger firms that have benefitted from the knowledge and have found themselves better equipped to handle their service providers.

Her company is aptly named Going Social  and you can find Elenore on LinkedInFacebook and Twitter.

Josh's Bio

Starting to teach himself coding at the age of 12, Josh has managed to gain quite some traction in the development space. Be it from building up a company from scratch to a value of $1 mil (USD) in under 12 months, to building his own ‘shazam’ to make his game of space invaders more challenging by using audio frequencies to output more powerful bullets, to crisis development – building 9 month project in 24 hours, or a 2 year project in under a week, Josh has garnered interest from a few big names and managed to land himself big projects as a freelancing developer. As well as developing apps and websites, Josh is giving the talking space a go by mentoring other developers, giving workshops and posting to youtube. You can find Josh on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and his awesome company 3ncode on Facebook
