LISA MAYNARD-ATEM

Social Media Strategist & Entrepreneur

" My journey into the world of social media started out because I needed a cost effective way to promote myself many years ago when I worked in fashion. As I grew my own channels, companies were coming to me asking for advice which I was sharing free of charge, as I was learning myself. Eventually, this led to the role that would shape my social media career - Social Media Manager for the most famous luxury department store in the world - Harrods. When I joined, they had a following of just over 30,000. When I left in November 2017, they had a following of over 2.5M. In my time there, their Instagram went for zero to 1.1M. In December 2017, I decided to strike out on my own and become a consultant, offering advice and support for social media strategy, advising brands on using social in ways that supports their business objectives. I also lecture at the London College of Fashion and am frequently invited to speak at events. Outside of work, I love nothing more than spending time with friends and family, and I am a firm believer that tables were invented for dancing on. "
