Steve Hickey

I came to Australia from the UK on a 1 year working holiday visa in 2001 and have never left. Since then, I got a dog, become an Australian resident and got married in Las Vegas.

My background was in retail management in England, and then telephone sales and marketing in Sydney. In 2007, I grabbed the opportunity of getting into digital and joined Optimisation Australia. I learnt some web design but really found my forte in online advertising and Google AdWords. From there it felt like a natural progression to learn SEO (not the geeky coding side of things) and the more holistic side to online marketing.
