manda joined MET in 2017 and has worked to establish the company’s new brand – METCloud. The organisation’s vision is to develop a globally recognised brand synonymous with robust cyber security technologies and services.
Amanda’s knowledge of marketing in industry coupled with an innovative, exciting approach has won many plaudits from partners, customers and peers.
Passionate about design and branding and with specialist skills in social media marketing, Amanda has completed a Diploma in Social Media for Business and is also a member of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Future Faces initiative.
During the summer of 2019, Amanda founded a new Instagram business - @LoveIslandBants. “I wanted to put my qualification to the test, so I set up an Instagram page with the sole purpose of making people laugh (otherwise known as a ‘meme page’). Within 7 weeks, my Love Island-themed page had organically generated nearly 80,000 followers and people were bidding as much as £9,000 to take it off my hands. @LoveIslandBants has partnered with brands offering paid collaborations and promotions and was even enjoyed by the celebrity Islanders themselves.”
Thirsty for knowledge and currently studying for a CIM Level 6 Diploma in Professional Marketing, Amanda is looking to extend her team by employing an apprentice this autumn. Having benefited from an apprenticeship herself, Amanda sees real value in apprenticeships as a route to a successful career.
