Helping professionals, teams, graduates and students build a brand and relationships using social media tools such as LinkedIn is what Jo Saunders does. Whether through an in-house seminar, a conference presentation, a lecture theatre, hands-on workshop, online course or video, Jo loves to educate and enlighten when it comes to LinkedIn and social media marketing.
As the only finalist from WA in the category of Social Media Educator of the Year, Jo Saunders is proud to represent Western Australia in the Social Media Marketing Awards. Presented by the Social Media Marketing Institute, the awards recognise individuals, teams, agencies and organisations, to celebrate excellence and achievement in social media marketing.
Mireille Ryan, CEO of Social Media Marketing Institute shared; “We launched the Social Media Marketing Awards because we wanted to showcase the amazing work being done by so many talented people in the social media industry. This year we hav added the “Social Media Educator of the Year” award as a way to highlight those who are the leading experts in social media education. It can be hard for someone wanting to choose a social media course to know if the course or the educator meets the industry standard so this award helps to not only celebrate those who are leading the industry but also shines a light on providing excellence in social media education”.
Jo has been training clients and students in how to leverage LinkedIn for almost 10 years as part of her business Wildfire Social Marketing. She has built up a reputation as a leading international LinkedIn expert and is the only Australian LinkedIn expert to speak at Social Media Marketing World in San Diego, the biggest social media conference in the world, run by Social Media Examiner.
This is the second year Jo has been a finalist in the awards, last year being a runner up for the Best Use of LinkedIn category. Jo was also named the number 2 LinkedIn Expert for Asia Pacific 2018 by the Social Media Marketing Institute.
