SoNailicious:
Succes in Cut Throat Beauty Industry
with founder Maria Vlezko

Born and raised in Europe, SoNailicious.com founder and editor, Maria Vlezko has had a diverse career from fashion to finance. She arrived to Australia in 2006 to continue her financial education and career in corporate finance. As a hobby, she began blogging about the reinvention of her personal style on CrashingRed.com which quickly became one of the most popular Australian fashion blogs. She suddenly found herself in the front row of fashion parades and featured in online and print publications and so took up blogging full time.

When nail art series on CrashingRed.com became one of the most read and commented on parts of the blog, Maria decided to take it to the next level and in November 2012, founded SoNailicious.com. The new site has became an excellent outlet for her passion for art and beauty. It has quickly grown and became one of the popular online beauty resources worldwide – over 70,000 people visit SoNailicious every month. Maria has also published two books and was featured in a number of online and traditional print media.

In conjunction with running SoNailicious.com, Maria can be found traveling the world with her family, sun bathing on Sydney’s Northern beaches or writing her new book.”

Eventbrite - Geolocational Social Media 4 Business~Posse Founder Rebekah Campbell 11 Feb

Posse is the world’s first social search engine.

Posse helps you find all the best places in the world according to people whose tastes you can trust – your friends. The next time you’re in a new city or are even just hanging out in your own neighborhood, you’ll know exactly where to go for the best of everything!

You can find the favorite places of celebrities, chefs, designers, musicians and politicians. Search for who you want to follow, look around their town, then go ‘bump’ into them at brunch.

So how should businesses use these tools and technologies?

How do we connect wtih our customers, promote our businesses & utlimately increase our sales?

Geolocational technology has changed search for ever and consumers are using them as part of their every day digital activity.

Rebekah will share her insight and advice as to what this technology is and how to navigate it to prosperity and connection with your customers.

Who should attend?

  • PRs
  • Venues
  • Event Organisers
  • Retailers
  • Business Owners
  • Marketers
  • Anyone curious about cool new technology!

 

ABOUT REBEKAH CAMPBELL, Posse CEO

rebekah_CampbellRebekah founded top music management company, Scorpio, in 2002, and developed the careers of 11 of Australia’s biggest stars. In 2010, Rebekah switched careers and started Posse.

“In 2008, while promoting a tour for Evermore, I hit a problem when ticket sales to the band’s Perth show flagged. Disillusioned with the impact of traditional advertising channels on sales, and searching for alternative avenues of promotion I decided to ask the band’s Perth fans if they’d become promoters of the Evermore show at school or university, offering to pay commissions for tickets sold.

It worked. Evermore fans started putting up posters in school common rooms and university foyers and selling tickets to their friends. The result? A sold out show and a lot of empowered young fans who now felt they were part of the music business.

And the idea arose – could there be an internet version of this, selling tickets on a secure website?

From this initial thought, Posse.com was born.”

Rebekah is obsessed with American politics and if you don’t have three hours to spare, don’t bring up West Wing.

SMW 12 November: eunèv revolutionising the events industry!

TICKET PRICE GOES TO THE SALVATION ARMY BUSHFIRE APPEAL !!!
eunèv is revolutionising the event industry around the world!
Introducing eunèv: the world’s 1st online marketplace for people who plan meetings and events.
“If Instagram, Linkedin & Expedia had a love child, it would be eunèv.” Nanette Johnson, Co-Founder.
 Screen Shot 2013-10-24 at 10.41.20 PM
Come & Learn all about it from CEO Stephen Johnson who is making a special trip to Sydney to share eunèv with us!
List your venue, business or service or find a venue, business or service WORLDWIDE from your desk.
The eunèv marketplace empowers businesses to profile services, offer deals, promote events and build reputation – at no cost. Members benefit from a seamlessly integrated virtual professional network, secure e-commerce, content publishing and social media syndication – exclusively for MICE professionals.
The global Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) industry is not currently serviced efficiently through online channels, with no end-to-end solution to find, plan and book venues and talent for business meetings and events.
For people tasked with planning a business event it’s a time-consuming and frustrating process, with hundreds of hours spent trawling leisure-based travel websites which lack relevance for MICE.
Business event venues and suppliers are unable to profile themselves appropriately on leisure websites. Other online directories force venues to pay to list or be featured, then only offer unqualified lead generation.
eunèv offer free membership and a unique software-as-a-service procurement process built into it’s social marketplace, that is specific to MICE.
eunèv make it easier to discover and engage business event venues and suppliers, showcase events and build professional reputation – all in one place.
Short video showing how eunèv was born with Founders Nannette Johnson & Corrie Stathis (+ Stephen who has a non speaking part!).

Who should attend?
  • PRs
  • Venues
  • Event Organisers
  • PAs
  • Florists
  • Photographers
  • Stylists
  • Talent
  • Anyone involved in the Event Industry!
  • Marketers
If that’s you, come and join us on the 12th November 2013.
