Sue Ellson 2022


Independent LinkedIn Specialist, Author, Educator, Career Development Practitioner, Consultant, Founder, Gigster, Trainer, Poet

Originally from Adelaide in South Australia and now living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, my full time 11 year corporate career started in banking just six days after my last secondary school exam. I haven’t had a ‘real job’ since that ended in 1994.

As a life-long learner by choice, I completed part-time university studies in 2000 and have been attending up to four events per week ever since.

My extensive analogue and digital knowledge, skills and networks have been developed through values-aligned professional, pro bono and voluntary work.

I am the Founder of two social enterprises, Newcomers Network (2001 – now) and Camberwell Network (2012 – 2022).

I joined LinkedIn in 2003 (member number 77,832). I started consulting and training on LinkedIn in 2008. Since 2016, I have written and published five non-fiction books and my next two will be poetry books.

I have been featured on a 2022 list of LinkedIn Experts and have provided professional services to a range of local and international clients.

I am regularly quoted in the media on the topics of LinkedIn, careers,  gigsters, business, social media, marketing, networking and being a newcomer.

As a gigster, I use technology to attract aligned gigs and I won’t be stopping anytime soon. I am always looking for one new thing to do every month! After hours, I enjoy catching up with family and friends, going for long walks and five rhythms dancing. 💃

How can I help you?

Sue Ellson Consultant

When I first joined the online world in 2001, I had a lot to learn. I went to an ‘expert’ and what I wanted and what they delivered were two completely different things. So began the online boot-strap approach of constant self-education, experimentation and testing that I have continued ever since.

I have made the mistakes, so you don’t have to! To survive without a real job since 1994 means I have got a lot right and I love the variety and challenge! As an educator, everything I do is designed to build on what you already know – whether you are a beginner or very knowledgeable. I have also done everything I suggest so I have had to fix all the bugs and I will admit, swear at my screen!

I work with my clients, students and the media to inform, educate and transform lives with specialist, current and practical knowledge, experience and insights in the areas of LinkedIn, careers, business, marketing, social media and WordPress websites.

I use technology to help you appear in search results in search engines, Google, Bing and social media so that you can attract opportunities aligned with your values, purpose, goals and objectives without paying for advertising and by creating digital assets that are suitable for your target audience – for your career, business or enterprise.

I help you understand what you are doing and why – so we can choose the best of the best and focus on implementing what will work now and in the future.

I provide an extensive amount of information that can be freely accessed anytime and anywhere so please enjoy browsing around this website and follow me on social media.

If you would like to save time and work smarter, simply book an appointment and let’s get started!
