Steve Davis

FAMI CPM Principal, Marketing Communication Consultant, Talked About Marketing

Steve Davis has lived his life by the Oscar Wilde principle, there is only one thing worse than being talked about and that’s NOT being talked about.

But he doesn’t just advise his clients to produce content, he walks the talk.

He has delivered workshops to thousands of businesses, been a keynote speaker, and, in 2013 he started The Adelaide Show podcast which has built a loyal audience and been a finalist in the national podcast awards.

Steve believes all businesses are sitting on goldmines of potential content and his role is to help you unlock those valuable marketing.

Michael Shanahan

Marketing Strategist, Talked About Marketing

Even though Michael has a background in the creative fields of theatre and animation, his work in marketing has been notable for its rigorous basis in strategic thinking and measurement.

Michael’s methodical approach makes sure that all marketing efforts are directed towards specific outcomes and can be measured. This thorough approach helped one organisation discover more than $1million in donations which had been submitted by users but lost in the website.

Marketing insights developed by Michael are drawn from 20 years working within private enterprise, not-for-profit organisations, and government departments. These have ranged from property development to Zoos SA, and Novita to Parks SA. His work has covered strategy developing, social media training, and content development, in tourism, mental health, investment, education, and recreation.

Michael’s key strength is knowing how to break down complex plans and concepts into simple, step-by-step tasks and, most importantly, putting measurement in place to monitor progress.
