Yvonne began her career with Microsoft in Sydney, before travelling the world with the software giant. Returning to Australia she created the Ms Megabyte persona leading to a national media profile and a best-selling book teaching everyday Australians to love technology.
Yvonne soon received invitations to speak and MC at corporate events with traditionally male-skewed speaker programs. She has since worked across a wide industry base including government, education, enterprise, small business, industry, marketing and tech. As a pioneer in tech education in Australia, Yvonne is frequently requested as a guest speaker and MC for corporate events.
A successful speaking and business consulting career has continued, driven by demand for Yvonne’s expertise, fresh thinking and get-up-and-go! Recognising a gap in the market for small business owners without resources to appoint agencies and consultants, Yvonne founded start-up Spruikable.com – providing custom digital marketing strategy & action plans which educate business owners and their teams as they execute.
Yvonne is a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional, Professional Speakers Association) – the highest designation for Speakers, and recognised globally and is a volunteer for Code Club Org – a global movement to #getkidscoding.
Australia’s largest organisations have entrusted Yvonne with their conferences and events for many years and she's worked with over 500 groups including NAB, Society of Consumer Affairs Professionals, realestate.com.au, Telstra, Schwarzkopf, Neways, LJ Hooker, Intel,
Microsoft, Fujitsu, Mitchell & Partners, REIV, Austereo, Westpac, Westfield, Optus, Victorian Tourism, Victoria Racing Club, Federal Government.
