Past Digital Marketing Speaking Events

Digital Marketer Down Under


Digital Marketer Down Under ran in August 2018 at the Gold Coast Convention Centre in Australia, and was attended by over 1000 attendees wanting to grow their business through digital marketing techniques.

Darren shared the main stage panel discussing “Traffic versus Content – What Wins The Conversion”.  The stage was shared with Richard Lindner, the Co-Founder and President of Digital Marketer, the world’s largest digital marketing research and training company (who Darren’s agency Fully Charged Media is a proud Certified Partner of), and Mike Rhodes, the owner of one of the top 15 AdWords Agencies in the world (according to Google!).

Darren also hosted a networking roundtable event titled “Growing Your Tourism Business Using Digital Marketing”.  This was a great talk, explaining the issues of setting up tracking using third party booking engines, through to the different marketing platforms to use at the various stages of the travel planning and booking process from Dreaming, Researching, Booking and becoming an advocate.
