Hey Sue,

Thank you so much for joining the program!

Was such a great chat, the team loved the details of editing back-end google searches.

So good to have you in our contacts now, and we’ll be sure to reach out for any future stories!

Thanks again!


Response from Sue Ellson

Thank you for reaching out to me and discussing the story in depth beforehand and allowing me to share some angles worth discussing. I love talking about anything to do with careers and sharing tips and strategies and the broadcaster slipped in some great questions on the spot. Really appreciate the opportunity to reach a wider audience and happy to come back at any time! Sue Ellson 🙂

LinkedIn Marketing Strategy Course at the Australian Institute of Management

Rated 5 out of 5
December 15, 2022

What a whirlwind few months it’s been! 💥

Earlier this year, I decided to “change” careers and enter the world of Social Media Marketing, but with the help of Sue Ellson I realized I’m not changing, I’m actually just complementing my true passion…health and fitness.

It’s not a pivot, it’s an extension of knowledge 🍏 and I am incredibly grateful for the team at the Australian Institute of Management for the learning opportunities, and for providing such incredibly engaged instructors and mentors; like Sue Ellson.

What’s next? More courses in 2023, can’t wait to learn 📚 grow 💫 and explore new opportunities in the New Year!

Kendra Osborn

Response from Sue Ellson

Kendra Osborn you are being really brave digging deep and looking for your true self. Most people just keep going with the status quo and complain on the side.

Aiming for the 80% values aligned opportunity in the future will ultimately bring its own rewards.

Yes, it can be frustrating going through the change (it took three years of reading books that didn’t give me an answer to ultimately find my own way).

Please celebrate all of the insights and steps along the way – I can already see how your alignment is changing and I have no doubt you will not only change yourself but empower others along the way.

Keep up the great work! 😃🏆

As I’m new to LinkedIn I thought your guidance about what’s important to get right and focus on, was very helpful as well as your taking us through the technical settings of our profiles.
Yes, there are a lot of options on LinkedIn that many people are yet to discover and some of those technical settings can be very helpful. Sue Ellson 🙂

Is LinkedIn Turning In To Facebook?

Your article about LinkedIn becoming Facebook is extremely well written. Very crisply worded. Very well structured.
Thank you – so glad you enjoyed the article on ‘Is LinkedIn turning into Facebook? Is it still useful for business?’ that I published on Medium recently and I trust it has helped you see how the change in the newsfeed trends feels as a user on the platform. Sue Ellson 🙂

Personal LinkedIn And Business Development Strategy Assistance
Hi Sue,
I wanted to give you an update on what’s happened after our session.
I think everything you do is a testament to how important it is to invest in yourself.
The information you shared with me has had a big impact on my work success.
I still have to go through the video again to check that I’ve done everything we talked about. It’s good to have the recording to return to though.
By adjusting my profile, I have had sales opportunities from connections through LinkedIn. Most of them have approached me.
I checked through my old average views of when I posted, and they were anywhere between 50-500. Some of my recent industry-specific posts have had between 1,000 and 2,000 views. Some of the people commenting have been potential clients. I think this is due to content, but also to changing my profile to Creator Mode, and using hashtags.
I’ve also had a new job offer, and potentially a counter-offer from my current employer. This is in a large part to my visible activity on LinkedIn for the new employer.
The current one wanted to keep me for having built my industry knowledge, bringing potential clients, and doing an all-round good job in what’s a tough market.
My next step will have an ongoing role, which will make it easier for me to get a home loan.
Thank you for all of your help, it’s really been a game-changer for me!
The key to success after attending a professional appointment is to implement what you have learnt and I am so pleased to hear about these fabulous results! It seems there are also some unexpected but pleasant ones as well and by demonstrating your capabilities online, people are noticing (I actually love seeing your posts in my LinkedIn newsfeed as they always share something new and interesting). Yes, Creator Mode is definitely an advantage if you use those top five hashtags in your posts. Setting yourself up well financially is also a very empowering goal and I truly wish you every success in the future. Sue Ellson 🙂

In gratitude! Hi Sue, I belatedly watched your webinar in early October for CDAA and just wanted to thank you for you immense generosity! I also read about your intention to stay current as an older worker (for want of a better term!), which resonates for me as well, upskilling daily and inviting new challenges and learning opportunities. Love your style and your energy for giving! Warm regards
Thank you for accessing the recording of the LinkedIn for Business Coaches and Career Specialists Event all the way from New Zealand. Yes, it is vital to keep up to date and I have been attending between one and four events per week since the year 2000! Helping people learn really drives me and gives me heaps of energy. I also really appreciate you taking the time to send a personal message – that means a lot! Sue Ellson 🙂

Updating My LinkedIn Profile And Learning How To Use LinkedIn For A Business Development Role
Hi Sue
I will be rewatching the session and taking more notes.
It was a brilliant session.
It’s a good thing I know how to make my own profile work better!
Thank you for such a brilliant session. I will be following up, for sure.
On a personal note, it was such a pleasure to see you and hear where you are at. I don’t have many role models, and to see what you’re doing and how you are growing is a real inspiration to me.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
It was so lovely to see you again and understand how your career journey has changed so much in the last five years. I am excited for you for this next stage and look forward to supporting you in your contract role over the coming months. LinkedIn has changed a lot and there are many ways that an enterprise can use it to promote their offerings. Have a great weekend! Sue Ellson 🙂

Just wanted to touch base and say how much l enjoyed the Schools Forum today, l work with Greg (based in our Sydney) Office, my career over many years has seen my work within the schools sector at different levels so l will stay in contact and look up some of your publications. Stay Safe and thanks again for your passion and contributions today.

Thank you Aden, great that you could join the Catholic Schools Guide Ignite Series Virtual Forum on ‘Discover the 10 Secrets to Maximising your Social Media Platforms.’ Greg Campitelli did an amazing job bringing the five panellists together and attracting so many people to the event. There were some real gold nuggets in the various presentations and as an educator at heart, I loved sharing both strategy and tactics for social media in schools. Sue Ellson 🙂

Online Training Session With Founder And Staff
Sue’s analysis of our online marketing program enlightened me about how everything is connected to everything else. There are lots of relatively small initiatives that I had previously dismissed as a waste of money and time, but now I have a better understanding of how the jigsaw pieces amplify each other. 

It has been fascinating to start with a good briefing, to prepare an online audit report, to have your team add their comments and now to go through the explanations and training to help you understand how all the online components of your digital presence interact – and we have only gone through the first half of the report so far! Looking forward to the next stage and seeing how the suggested updates increase your statistics with your target audience and build and maintain your existing relationships. See you online next Tuesday! Sue Ellson 🙂

Thank you Christine – so pleased to hear that the LinkedIn algorithm helped you find the event on LinkedIn for Business Coaches and Career Specialists and that you got so much out of the hour long presentation (and the extra half hour of questions). Feel free to share the link to the recording, slides, document and chat transcript to others! Sue Ellson 🙂

Wowee Sue, thank you so much – that was such an incredible guest lecture I got SO much out of it and I know the students did too. Really, thank you so much.

It was a wonderful privilege to provide my second guest lecture at Collarts (the Australian College of the Arts) and this time on the topics of online branding and LinkedIn. Fantastic questions from the engaged students. I have received additional feedback since this session which helps me understand what is most important to young students starting their journalism and story-telling adventure. I hope I can come back again next year! Sue Ellson 🙂

There are lots of things that are helpful to me. For example, how to change settings and privacy in Linkedin and the importance of finding a professional association to join. I just started to work on my Linkedin. So knowing what is significant to add and how to do them and are most helpful to me~
Thank you for letting me know what was most helpful to you in this session for the University of Sydney Business School students. Online learning makes it possible for me to help students worldwide and it is great to hear that you will be connecting with a relevant professional association and updating your settings.

LinkedIn Workshop For Year 11 And Year 12 Students
Thanks very much for the workshop this morning. The students were really engaged, and had great feedback afterwards about how useful it was to be supported with navigating the service as students, especially given LinkedIn is generally more geared to working professionals.
It was so wonderful to be able to run this LinkedIn Workshop online but have two staff facilitating at the other end with quick breaks for students to be able to update their LinkedIn Profile during the workshop. Great idea to showcase how to do an Alumni Search for the school so that students can find other alumni around the world and see students follow and subscribe to other social media for your school. All the best in the future and I hope the students who could not attend can watch the recording and gain benefit from that as well! Sue Ellson 🙂

Maximising LinkedIn Webinar For CoreNet Global Australia Chapter
It was akin to opening a fridge and bypassing the light and seeing a nugget of gold behind the margarine. It was very good.

It was designed specifically for Corporate Real Estate Professionals and it was so good to have such a high percentage of people who registered on the webinar and asking such great questions! I hope you have the opportunity to put the recommendations into practice. Sue Ellson 🙂

Christmas Day BYO Picnic Lunch 2017
Hi Sue,

We were fortunate enough to have attended the picnic in 2017 when we were on a road trip through Victoria.

The Christmas Day picnic stays in my mind as one of the best memories from that trip and I have often thought of emailing you to say thank you for organising such a wonderful event.

We live in Sydney and have not been back to Victoria since that trip. If we ever spent time in Melbourne again, I would love to attend one of your events. Everyone we met was lovely and this was one of the best Christmas’s we have ever had.

Kind Regards

Thank you Chris for joining the Newcomers Network annual Christmas Day BYO Picnic lunch in 2017 and for remembering it four years later! We have now hosted this every year since 2006! See you again sometime. Sue Ellson 🙂

Thank you so much for your presentation to the CTA group.
Outstanding presentation – certainly will be recommending you throughout my network.
Your knowledge and ability to communicate to the group is so valuable.
Many thanks once again.
I understand, intimately, how difficult it is for people to go from unemployment to employment and I see it as a privilege to help people find a way to move forward, especially when they are not at their brightest and best. It is simply a case of learning ‘how to find work’ skills rather than ‘how to do work’ skills. I hope it leads to many productive outcomes! Sue Ellson 🙂

Hi Sue. You have no idea how much that means to me… Thank you. And so much needed right now, to be reminded where I once was. You will always be “that person” who helped me turn my life around in Australia, when I was ready to give up. I admire you so much and so privileged to have met you. 😊

Sue Ellson you’re a wonderful writer! Love your poetry too. I was unfortunately made redundant due to the pandemic. Slowly applying for jobs and also looking for freelance clients again. So your article ‘Can unemployment be good for you’ put a smile on my face. 😊
So pleased to hear that you enjoy both my poetry and my non-fiction writing – that is great news – thank you! So happy to hear you now have a smile on your face – there is so much to be grateful for and to enjoy in life. Sue Ellson 🙂

Understanding The Basics Of Social Media Course At The Centre For Adult Education (CAE)

I’d like to thank you for your high quality social media course at CAE last Thursday 20 February 2020. I came home feeling it was one of the best courses I’d ever done: it was a great privilege to benefit from your teaching and wealth of experience and expertise on this subject.

Your course was stimulating, informative and comprehensive and you created a fun learning environment. I am still exploring many of the links and information included in your course notes, an excellent take-home resource for future reference.

You have motivated me to really explore and understand the social media phenomenon in greater depth, even if currently I can’t see myself using certain platforms in my personal life. Interestingly, your course has shown me that I actually already do use many of the consumer-oriented tools, although at the course I described myself as a social media dinosaur.

I would also like to thank you for your incredible generosity in sharing so many extra resources with us, including free access to your books. I have read many of your website articles and particularly enjoy your positive, enthusiastic approach.

At every opportunity I will freely recommend your work and courses to others.

Kind regards
Thank you Elena – the best course you have ever done – wow, that’s exciting! Glad you enjoyed the in-class component and are making use of my comprehensive handouts (they are updated before every course I teach). It is good to recognise what we do know and build on that – makes the learning so much easier if you ask me. I hope to remain positive and enthusiastic for as long as I am breathing! All the best, Sue Ellson 🙂

Search Engine Optimisation Workshop For City Of Boroondara

Hi Sue, Another fantastic workshop! When I first started doing your courses I felt really overwhelmed and a little depressed, thinking it was all too hard. Now, after doing repeat classes, I’m taking it in my stride and understanding a lot more, and feeling comfortable with it all. And as you know, my ranking has really improved, always room for more improvement though! I’ve learnt and understood a lot more after last night’s session. I feel empowered to be in some sort of control, so that I can make the improvements myself. Really satisfying! Thanks so much Sue, you truly do a great job!
Thank you for joining one of the many workshops I run for the City of Boroondara – in this case, the Search Engine Optimisation one. It has been great to see you over several sessions and hear about your improved rankings – long may it continue. Sue Ellson 🙂

Understanding The Basics Of Social Media And Social Media Strategy For Business

Firstly, many thanks for the wonderful social media courses I recently did with you at CAE. I thought you were outstanding in every way and instantly saw what a true expert you are in these areas .. especially LinkedIn which was such a surprise (I – like many others I suspect – thought LinkedIn was mainly for professional profile-building, networking and job seeking ..!). It was fascinating to find out what a brilliant platform it is for other purposes .. thank you so much for your brilliant insights there.

I was thrilled to participate in both your classes and appreciate everything you taught me as well as this incredible additional material which you have so generously shared with us.

Best wishes in all your myriad pursuits .. you’re an amazing lady!
I am so pleased you were able to join two separate courses at the CAE on Friday and Saturday of the same week! Yes, LinkedIn has many different benefits beyond professional profile-building, networking and job seeking – most importantly, the incredible publishing features! I wish you well in your upcoming country based enterprise and trust you will enjoy all that fresh air! Sue Ellson 🙂

Oct 16, 2019 by Alessandra Bortoleto

I would like to thank and recommend Sue Ellson for her exceptional and fantastic work. She is passionate about what she does and has huge knowledge of the industry. I contacted and met Sue in the beginning of July 2019 to focus on finding a new role in my area of expertise. I am an industrial engineer with experience in my country (Brazil), and I wanted to come back to work in the engineering industry here in Melbourne after being in the hospitality and finance industry for 3 years (while completing my studies). Sue gave me valuable LinkedIn and industry insights and extra resources to start my journey to find my desired role. After our two hour meeting I was full of information, new LinkedIn profile and homework to do. I followed Sue’s advice and modified my CV to reflect these changes. After 3 months I can now say I was successful in my applications and I found the job I wanted as a Project Engineer in a paper industry. I really thank you Sue for all your help and support!!
Congratulations and well done to you Alessandra – you have obviously decided to listen to a local professional to help you achieve your goal, but more importantly, you have actually completed the follow up tasks and achieved success! It really impresses me that with just a two hour session, you were able to secure your chosen occupation at the right remuneration rate without having local Australian experience in that area – so well done on both listening to and implementing my suggestions! All the best in the future!! Sue Ellson 🙂

Create A Simple WordPress Website Course

Hello Sue,

This is just a thank you note for presenting the web construction classes of the last two Fridays.

As I said on Friday, I don’t know how you keep so much deep learning in your brain. The course was intensive and full-on. Although the task ahead is rather daunting, I will certainly continue building a website. The notes you provided should guide me on the way. I do look forward to receiving the remainder of the stuff not already contained in your last email.

I was particularly impressed with your disdain for the you beaut “let-me-do-it-all-for-you” approach of commercial web page builders. Especially valuable, I think, was the stuff about security and freedom from spammers, hackers and unwanted muckers-up.

I do wish you well in all of your endeavours and appreciate very much the service you do to the cause of popular and ultimately democratic use of the web.

Yes, I believe that the internet, and the content you publish on your own website, can provide an opportunity for productive change. I have heard of several previous participants who have completed their own WordPress Website so I encourage you to complete yours too! Sue Ellson 🙂

Your help with my CV and LinkedIn was invaluable and helped me to develop my career, finding a job is not easy and can be harsh.

Thank you – yes, I agree, it can be challenging to develop a career and find a job.

Hi Sue

Happy new year to you! : )

Just wanted to shoot you an email to let you know I have had quite a few enquiries from local firms in Hawthorn for business.

And i believe its because i come up well in Hawthorn as a result of the work we did.

Amazing! Im getting a lot more traction here than in Elwood.

I think its also because there is bigger business around here, as opposed to Elwood.

Thanks again!
That is fantastic news – so excited for you and keep up the great work! Sue Ellson 🙂

You have given me lots of tips and insight for job searching in Australia.

Create A Simple WordPress Website Course At The Centre For Adult Education (CAE)

Hi Sue, I wanted to thank you again for all your patience in answering so many of our ‘noobe’ questions during our recent course and to offer you some feedback. I found out that the settings I thought I’d changed at Crazy Domains hadn’t taken hold and I had to do them again. Once I did, I had a site. I have done some serious tinkering and in just one afternoon, I have managed to come up with my very own site. It’s very basic and has no bells and whistles but I don’t need those things. I’m rather delighted that with no notes, I managed ot figure out how to 1) Associate a URL with a picture, 2) How to get the picture to come up in the sidebar even though the jetpack facebook link didn’t work at all 3) How to add a WP Form to my Contact Page 4) How to add options to that WP Form without having to start over. I’m really feeling happy with my self and have thought of a few more things I’d like to add to perhaps a second site. I guess once you successfully complete one site, you feel really empowered to steam ahead and do another! At first I was glued to my notes but having completed the process, I feel really strong and empowered. Thank you again for your help and all those blessed notes. I couldn’t have done without them! Regards JP
Hello JP – firstly, well done! What a fantastic achievement! It seems that all of your preliminary work over the years talking with various web designers helped you collect the right content and then after some specific tuition, it gave you the ability to publish it all yourself! I agree, that it is empowering and I look forward to hearing not just about your own enterprise website, but your own personal website being published in the future. Congratulations once again! Sue Ellson 🙂

Everything about Sue Ellson’s presentation was an object lesson in how a webinar should be done. Vic Gov should consider contracting her to provide lessons to everybody else who presented webinars in the Small Business Festival – even David Koch’s people!

Centre For Adult Education, Social Media Strategy For Business

Thanks for such an enlightening day Sue. You opened my eyes to all corners of social media and it’s uses I had not even thought about. You were very generous with your advice, tips, knowledge and information. I particularly loved how you were able to personalise the day to meet each of the learner’s needs. I feel very well equipped with ideas and options on how to optimise the use of social media for work after taking a break from the workforce for a while. You have also inspired me to set myself up and go it alone, offering so many ideas and options which are available and I had no idea about. Such a valuable day for me. Thank you!
Thank you Felicity for your feedback – was a pleasure to have you in the class and I am so glad that you were able to learn a variety of ways to move forward in the future! Sue Ellson 🙂

Dear Sue,
Thank you for the very informative session I attended last week at RMIT. Prior to attending, I was contemplating removing my site, as I was not aware of the benefits I could gain for my business if I put in a little effort. Need to find that perfect photo!
Kind regards,

How To Promote Your Website Free Of Charge

I attended Sue Ellson’s Promote Your Website course at the CAE. I loved it! Sue is a vibrant, enthusiastic and genuinely interested tutor. Her ability to target information directly in line with the needs of the individual learner cannot be understated. All participants were very pleased with the content and the fact that it was delivered in a way that was relevant to their own online ventures, business or otherwise. It’s great to be working with a totally authentic individual who really knows her stuff, has loads of practical experience and is up to date with recent trends. I’m super keen to do more courses with Sue in the near future. Thanks again. It was just great.

Fitzroy Library Career Development For Over 40’S

Dear Sue
Thank you so much for your inspiring workshop.
The two most important things I learnt from your talk is to maintain a positive attitude and that it’s all about being the ‘right fit’ for a company and a position. It’s okay if you don’t get the job. It just means you may be the ‘wrong fit’ for that particular company or position.
Of course, I learnt so many other things too. I am so looking forward to working through the wonderful materials you have generously sent to us all. Hope to see you again out there in the big wide world. Thank you so much.
PS I laughed when you mentioned…I’ve only started looking for a new job….but after your talk yesterday, a job I am really excited about popped up when I googled a particular company I’d like to work for. I have a two weeks to prepare myself ( before the deadline)…I feel very positive after your talk and will look forward to putting an application together for it. Thank you so much.
Thank you for this very detailed feedback on the Fitzroy Library Career Development for Over 40’s presentation. I am so glad you found it inspirational and I hope it helps you decide what actions to take in the future for your career. I trust your preparations over the next two weeks go well and all the best in the future! Sue Ellson 🙂

How To Promote Your Business Free Of Charge

I have met a lot of people through operating a business for nearly 20 years and Sue is a very intelligent and insightful person – a wise owl (you’ll notice I didn’t put old in there Sue!!). After a three minute synopsis of each individual’s business or requirements, Sue gave extremely targeted advice across a broad cross section of fields. I will certainly enrol in other courses that Sue intends to take. I would highly recommend her service.
Thank you Claire! It was great to have you in the class ‘How to Promote Your Website Free of Charge’ at the Centre for Adult Education (CAE). I am sure that your enterprise will continue to grow and develop in the future – you have a wealth of experience and knowledge that will guide your decision making process! Cheers, Sue Ellson 🙂

A very clear articulation about LinkedIn and the benefits that can be achieved by loading your profile carefully and the daily 15 minutes of your time to check LinkedIn.
