I am Louise Brogan, and my business is Social Bee NI.
After I graduated with a degree in Geography from University of Dundee, I travelled the world for a couple of years before deciding to work in IT. I had a job in London as an IT Consultant, but realised I wanted to get some good computing qualifications under my belt. I returned to N.Ireland, completed a MSc in Computing and got a great job as a software engineer in BT.
After a few years, I realised that I wanted to work more with people than pure computing, and moved to the role of Project Manager overseeing the roll out of computing projects in the NHS. Alongside this job, I started my first business selling craft supplies. Although I loved the craft side of the business, being tied to a retail shop didn’t work for me. I closed up the craft shop and honed my social media skills to help others. You can read more about this on the Huffington Post
I now work with business owners and entrepreneurs to show them how they can market their business online. I offer training, workshops and manage client accounts.
