NAME OF SPEAKER OR WRITER
Naomi is an Entrepreneur & Producer, specialising in Marketing and has an interest in behavioural and psychologically driven content.
As an avid content creator and entrepreneur, with past roles as a marketing manager, co-manager, and investor, Naomi has had the unique opportunity to work on several types of high-level marketing campaigns and growth projects. Naomi has been in marketing, sports and media for 10 years and in a management capacity for different tech and entertainment companies for over 5 years. She has recruited and directly managed technology teams of over 35 people and distributed customer service in Australia and internationally. She has worked with startups and corporates, forming strategy across departments with up to 600 staff. In these roles, she has utilised high-end technology to enhance the customer experience, significantly reduced cost per acquisition and deployed different growth strategies; including sending EDMs to over 4 million people.
Naomi started making tech for sports stadiums backed by a renowned investor after leaving PwC between 2012 - 2013. From there she left for San Francisco to gain more industry insight and attended Scholarship short courses at both UCLA and Stanford in 2013. At UCLA she attended a leadership and business course and at Stanford, she attended the Entrepreneurship, Leadership and International Business course at the postgraduate school.
She moved from catering tech in sports stadiums into an interest in restaurants infrastructure booking tech: Yumtable. It became the 2nd biggest booking engine in Australia and was 5th on the App Store due to different product and growth strategies she helped lead between 2014 – 2015, including the first Uber partnership in Australia. She was a Young Australian of the Year finalist (WA), delegate for the World Economic Forum and a Young Innovator of the Year finalist.
More recently, Naomi divested herself of her active investments and retained some passive ones, but even during this time, she couldn't help but see solutions to problems. She drew on experiences of engaging fans at venues, established and commercialised an engagement program for Curtin University and across Perth. This led her to establish her own media content creation business, MediaHeard in 2016.
Naomi has had a broad career – from co-running a sports, media and gambling tech consultancy focusing on M&A/investments to being a presenter for Telstra and a whole lot in between.
SOME HIGHLIGHTS FROM
MY LIFE SO FAR

RICHARD BRANSON'S ISLAND ENTREPRENEUR'S AND ATHLETE'S SUMMIT
The small gathering of fascinating individuals was held at Richard Branson's private Island, Necker. Naomi and the other guests were lucky to also be invited to his second island, Mosquito, normally reserved for his family.
Some highlights included; Nick Jacobsen's Kite Surf Jump off Richard Branson’s roof, the Blockchain summit, and when Naomi was lucky enough to be offered a job by Richard. Her highlight by far was watching Richard's routine throughout the week or so, and was pleasantly surprised when Richard thought she was a decade older than she was. She also learnt she was no good at chess (especially at Richard’s giant chess). Naomi was 20 at the time.
Naomi was thoroughly impressed with the caliber of people, the staff, the warmth of the locals and was very grateful to be invited.
