About 3 years ago I met Joanne Akkari (top left, in the green top), who was interested in working for Twinlife Marketing as a marketing consultant. From the moment I shook her hand, I knew that we would do many exciting things together. I don’t know why, but my gut feeling told me that this was an absolute right match.
I have a lot of respect for Joanne and for her marketing knowledge and expertise. She was part of the original Qantas online marketing team in the nineties and is still the person that everybody in our team, including myself, turn to for any online, web or social media questions or advice. Joanne has also successfully run her own online business and understands the challenges and opportunities of small business marketing.
For those of you who have had the pleasure to work with Joanne and have seen her in action probably know what I am talking about. Joanne is not only very good at what she does, but she is an absolute pleasure to be around, who always puts the client’s best interests first.
With the growth of our team of marketing consultants (we’ve grown from 3 to 9 over the past 12 months) I’ve promoted Joanne to Head of Marketing Consulting. This means that Joanne will be overseeing all clients and will be coaching/mentoring the marketing consultants with the aim to create even more cohesiveness in the team.
I am very excited about this next step, as it will mean that we’ll be able to be even more client focused. With more people comes the increase of marketing skills and expertise in our team. We’ll be able to keep on top of all the rapid changes in the marketing world and will keep giving honest and practical marketing advice that is focused on getting long-term sustainable results.
Congratulations Joanne and I am very grateful to have you as part of our team!
