This is my blog, so musings and useful information from Linda Coles of Blue Banana. That’s me 🙂

I founded Blue Banana to train other professionals in the expert use of social media tools as a viable strategy to grow their brand or company online and develop an additional way of doing business. I am a speaker and run various workshops and seminars on how to use the various tools effectively and productively.

Originally from the United Kingdom, I have helped many companies and businesspeople in New Zealand to gain a competitive advantage in their industries through inventive use of social media.

I have worked with professionals at major New Zealand companies including Telecom, ICONZ, Bayleys Real Estate, University of Auckland Business School, Barfoot & Thompson and Frog Recruitment.

I have presented to Microsoft, Her Business Network, MIT, Results.com, HRINZ, William Buck and staff of the University of Auckland.

You can find my work published on the subject by the NZ Herald, NZBusiness Magazine, Her Business Magazine, Human Resources Magazine,  www.socialmediaexaminer.com, http://www.mashable.com and
