This post introduces a few women from the July workshop, and the plans they have for Instagram.

Watching the workshop participants gain a sense of Instagram's possibilities felt like...watching pure transformation in action!
Annie O'Moon-Browning (at right, holding the phone) runs My Health Sanctuary, a naturopathic clinic in leafy Bardon, Brisbane.
Thanks to the dynamic Instagram+Annie combo, many more couples are now beginning to hear about the natural fertility and preconception healthcare services her clinic provides. To assist this to happen, Annie is posting images and messages 1-2 times per day and gaining a growing number of followers. Well done Annie!

Other participants included Lani Morris, world authority on the implementation of the Map of Meaning, skyped into the workshop from New Zealand where she is based. So far, Lani can be found on LinkedIn and Facebook.
Thank you Jasmine
Workshop presenter Jasmine Birks (Media Me Marketing) did a superb job ensuring that every participant - no matter our level of competence on arrival - finished the workshop with confidence, a working understanding, some 'insider' wisdom AND ideas for incorporating Instagram into their marketing strategy.
Jasmine, thank you so much for your generosity, your knowledge and your great facilitation! Jasmine can be found on LinkedIn, Pinterest, Facebook and of course on Instagram under the name @mediame
Wendy Rogers (left), director of Pipic Films, is a seasoned filmmaker who has produced films for Queensland Health, the World Health Organisation and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
Wendy's current project is a documentary about nature refuges and reserves under threat from coal and gas mining, starting with Bimblebox Nature Reserve in Central Qld.
Whereas social media activity until recently consisted of occasional facebook posts. Wendy is now using Instagram to share stills, short clips and related text to build a early and dynamic community of supporters and to set up for crowd funding the project.
To connect with or support the project in other ways, visit Wendy on Facebook, LinkedIn and/or Instagram (@pipicfilms). Note that Instagram requires you to register (free) to view images.

The August monthly event focuses on Instagram; then in September there'll be a relook at LinkedIn. For details, check out the last blog post or visit the website Women Howling at the Moon.
