Loop News interviewed me this week about my work for brands, non-profits, digital transformation in Jamaica and my social media strategy workshop at CARIMAC/UWI on June 21-22.
Stuart Smellie is Senior Social Media Manager and Trainer at Digita Global Marketing. Stuart attended one of my social media strategy workshops at the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication. Contact CARIMAC/UWI to register for the next one on June 22.

For the past couple months at UNICEF Jamaica I’ve been working to prepare the Jamaican launch of U-Report, which is UNICEF’s social messaging tool. In a nutshell, it allows us to send weekly polls/message pushes to an audience of U-Reporter via their favorite messaging platforms: Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Twitter and (free) SMS.
