How to add instagram to wordpress

I’ve been meaning to add my instagram account to my food blog Wheres My Sauce. I spent some time checking out the various instagram plugins available, configuring them and working out which was one best for my wordpress blog.

I’m going to save you some time by summarising what I have done. I’ll show you how to do it in a matter of minutes. It will be really easy after you read my blog post.

Innovation in professional services presentation

This is my most epic presentation to date on “Innovation In Professional Services”. I was invited to present it to an international professional services firm to their management team. It was a talk I was really looking forward to because I have previously worked in professional services at Deloitte and I could also apply my technology/startup lens to what has happened in that industry.

Launch of the Australian Mobile Learning Machine

If Australia is to be competitive in the technology industry, we need to share more information and help each other. In the industry that we are in which is technology startups, there are a lot of conversations happening outside of where I live in Sydney, Australia. These are happening in the Bay area, Europe and Asia which we don’t have access to. Whether we are online or on mobile, we have to be able to compete against all comers in the digital age. In the face of global competition, Australian technology companies need to become world class. We need to be the best at what we do.

Whilst we have some density of tech startups where I work in Fishburners and around Ultimo, we still don’t have the density that exist in places like San Francisco. Rather than lament “oh we are missing out” or “we need to be over there to build a company”, we need to build more bridges amongst each other. We need to collaborate on best practices, the conversations that we are having, and what we are learning.

Does your business need a mobile app? Upcoming talk

I’m speaking at this event on 20 April 2015. Its a breakfast seminar event called “Mobile Opportunities“. I’ll be speaking on “Should Your Organisation Have A Mobile App?”. You can RSVP here.

Its a question that I’m asked a lot by new clients. In fact, many businesses approach me and usually start by asking the “How” and the “What”. But rarely do they ask “Why” as in “Why should we have an app?”. This is the most important question and the first one you should be asking! So I’m usually the one bringing this up :)

There’s other talks on mobile as well on mobile opportunities, google’s mobile web friendly update and mobile opportunities. Here’s the list of speakers & topics in the image below. You can see more details about the event here.

I’m really keen to hear the talk from Sophie Hirst (Google) on the mobile web update. This is because of the update on google mobile search results page for mobile friendly websites. Read this awesome in depth article from Moz.

The cost of the event is $15. All proceeds go to the 2037 Glebe Youth Service. RSVP here. Thanks to Melon Media for organising the event.
