Stu Atkins

Technology trends and digital innovation

Social networking is the new ‘word of mouth’. Small to medium businesses often neglect the need to refine an online presence to help build new relationships and profitability. Stu will deliver key messages including:
•    using word of mouth to your advantage
•    targeting your business to the most relevant audience for minimal cost
•    tools to generate more business from the online channel.

Stu specialises in technology, digital disruption and social networking. He has spoken to thousands of professionals and has worked for a number of leading digital businesses in Australia.

His focus is on empowering audiences to be well armed with trends, be prepared for the advancing disrupters and generate better business outcomes by utilising new channels and strategies to remain relevant and ahead of the competition.

The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
