The Team

DB_0003_w300_sepiaDavid Bateson

Originally with a sales and marketing background in the big corporate world, David has worked in a number of industry sectors, including publishing, automotive, legal, accounting, HR and pharmacy.

He realised the power of content marketing (well before the term was coined) while working as a sales contractor for a retail franchise group in 2004, when two group outlets opened thanks to industry media coverage resulting from content marketing and publicity strategies he devised and executed, netting the client ~$450,000 in revenue.

Despite his corporate background, his enthusiasm is with the SME (small-medium enterprise) sector, especially fast-growth entrepreneurial businesses, and he has worked with and advised several startups.

David is also an advisor and mentor for the Greater Brisbane Small Business Advisory Service (GBSBAS), a federal government funded body that assists small businesses* in the Brisbane area.

Originally from the UK, David moved to Sydney just in time for the 2000 Olympics, before seeing the light and moving up to Brisbane.

*defined as those with fewer than 20 full time employees
