Sustainable Home Consulting, Speaking & Writing & Social Media Services
Do you need some advice for an interior project at home? Whether it is an entire home fit out, renovation or build, or just some advice on a small project, I can help with guiding you to a more sustainable approach. Get advice on where to source products, what eco, fair trade or sustainable options are out there and what steps to take. I work with individual home owners, and other professionals such as designers and builders, to help with anything from furniture and homewares selection, to paints and other finishes.
In this consult we will work through what you need help with and develop a plan of action so you can continue and complete the work that is needed. I will guide you to links and businesses who can help you to finish your project with sustainability at the centre.
I will provide you with a report after our consult, which includes recommended links and suggestions for what products, materials, finishes and services you might want to select. This consult is $99 for an hour. Please head here to book & I will be in touch within 4 days.

Social Media Consults
I am an experienced social media manager and influencer and have worked online since 2001, well before social media existed, growing a number of my own brands. Since the start of Facebook in Australia, I have been creating communities online and developed award winning programmes utilising social media.
I have worked with small -medium businesses, particularly in the sustainable, green, eco, design and interiors fields, as well as developing programmes for a large university, to grow and develop their social media platforms, engagement and reach. I understand the importance of content marketing to your business and how to stop the scroll and encourage people to engage with your brand.
I can help with assessment of your current social media accounts, develop a strategy, including social accounts, blogging, email lists, development of online challenges and more. I am also available to write content for your blog/website and social media where desired.
