Linda Coles - Linked in profile


Published on

I founded Blue Banana to train other professionals in the expert use of the social media tools as a viable strategy to grow your brand online and develop an additional way of doing business.

A conference speaker and author, I also run various workshops with teams such as but not limited to, sales and recruitment, on how to use LinkedIn as a way to grow your business connection base, network online effectively and find suitable candidates for job vacancys.

As a consultant, I can show you how to get the most out of LinkedIn and Facebook, create a social media plan, or if you have been working with social media a while, an audit of where you are at now and what you could do to get better results.

Originally from the United Kingdom, I have helped many companies and businesspeople in New Zealand to gain a competitive advantage in their industries through inventive use of social media.

I have presented to Transpower, Microsoft, the Her Business Network, MIT,, HRINZ, William Buck and staff of the University of Auckland and have worked with professionals at major New Zealand companies including Wolters Kluwer, Telecom, ICONZ, Barfoot & Thompson, University of Auckland Business School and EBOS.

You can find my work published on the subject by the NZ Herald, NZBusiness Magazine, Her Business Magazine, Management Magazine, Human Resources Magazine, and Social Media Examiner. My book "Learn Marketing with Social Media in 7 Days" (Wiley) is in all good book stores now.
