Not your average social media consultant

For over 15 years, I’ve been working in the health promotion industry, securing roles in South Australia and London before I decided to specialise and start Zockmelon in 2013. I have seen firsthand how health promoters struggle to keep up with the fast moving social media world, often being overshadowed by all the fad bloggers and wellness gurus who flood the market.

 

There’s nothing I love better than working with organisations to help them use social media more effectively. I run the Health Promotion Social Media School, consult on social media strategy, and speak at workshops and conferences.

I am passionate about raising the profile of public health, and I co-founded the Australian Public Health Consultants Network which supports self-employed consultants working in public health in Australia.

In 2014, I was awarded the Public Health Association of Australia and the Australian Health Promotion Association (SA Branches) South Australian Health Care Practitioner. Then, in 2018, I was recognised as one of ’40 under 40’ business leaders in South Australia by Deloitte and the Adelaide InDaily.

Thank you for providing the opportunities for all us health promoters to keep up to date in a fast moving social world. Especially important when all those big businesses are all over it. Absolutely loved your course, loved the content and delivery methods. Found it very clear and inspiring! Well done and thank you!

Thanks so much for all your help, and your knowledge. Thanks also for sharing it in a way that makes it affordable and accessible to little (and rural) organisations like ours! I have become a Zockmelonite, spreading the word, particularly in our region amongst our PCP’s and all their partner agencies!

Kristy provided a half day training day for the team which was invaluable.  Workshopping the character and narrative of our social media page in this training has ensured we will move forward with a consistent approach, style and message.  I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone working in the health promotion industry.  Not only is Kristy engaging in her delivery style, most importantly she comes from a health promotion background so understands the industry and the use of social media in this space which was what was of utmost importance to me.  Feedback from the team has been really positive – everyone found it very engaging and interesting and one long standing staff member and experienced health promotion practitioner stating it was the best training she has ever been too.

Kristy presented a fantastic workshop for our community managers and social media officers in SA Government group. Kristy provided a brilliant overview on how we could use live streaming in the workplace, including some of the highlights, benefits and risks associated.  I highly recommend getting along to one (or more!) of Kristy’s workshops as you’ll get some great practical and thoughtful advice.
