Episode 01 – Owen Ealden, Komandoo Island Resort

On this episode I’m joined by Owen Ealden, General Manager of Komandoo Island Resort in the Maldives. Discussing making an island resort the complete holiday experience, injecting personality into social media for greater engagement and keeping influencers at bay.

Episode 02 – Isaac Moody, Gabbinbar Homestead

On this episode I’m joined by Isaac Moody, owner of Gabbinbar Homestead in Toowoomba, Australia. Isaac turned a ‘run down’ 150 year-old house on acres of overgrown property into Queensland’s busiest wedding venue.

Isaac’s marketing strategy is 100% digital. We talk about setting traceable goals for websites. The difference between visitors from social platforms and Google. Mindset around dollars spent on advertising vs spent online. And perceiving websites as not as technology, but as an extension of forming a human connection. See more about Gabbinbar at
