eCommerce, Social Media, Online Advertising

  1. 1. Good morning and thank you for coming to the online business education breakfast here at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on October 17. Before we get started we just need to take a moment to thank our sponsors Sneaky Peek Promo for our lovely pens, Gold Coast Business News and National Australia Bank for our great goodie bags. Thank you also to our Gold Coast business making up the Q&A Panel: Jarrad Bell from One Hundred Words, Melinda Blackley from Scody Australia, Jenni Madison from Coconut Magic and Lisa Weeks from Maries Pizza.  Today is not just about education on excelling in online business but also about creating awareness for the Bravehearts charity. MeMedia would like to thank our charity, Bravehearts for their attendance and are pledging $5 from every ticket sold to Bravehearts.  We will also be contributing 100% of todays raffle prize funds proudly donated by each of the Q&A Panelist businesses.  Please allow me to welcome to the mic "Jason Oxenbridge" from Bravehearts to share the Bravehearts mission.
