G'day, I'm Brenda and I'm passionate about helping local businesses achieve business growth through digital marketing & social media.

Orange Umbrella was inspired by conversations with friends who own and operate local businesses. They were struggling to keep on top of the ever growing 'to do' list and it so happened I had the skills, knowledge and time to help them.

My business has grown a lot since then both in my clientele and services I offer - now specialising in social & digital marketing.


I’m a glass half full kinda gal – optimistic with equal doses of realism and practicality.

I bring a wealth of business, communications, and administrative knowledge to the table, having worked in various team leadership and project management roles across a range of industries including tourism, government, not-for-profit, environment, agriculture, health auditing, nutrition and fitness and marketing.

Brenda I LOVE your help with my Marketing and admin systems. You’ve helped me more than you know and we’re starting to see some great results. I wish I’d had your support from the beginning.

I have a small but thriving Tennis Coaching business where I work long hours. Being on court, at best I am able to make and take phone calls and emails in my breaks. Having Orange Umbrella come on board was fantastic, and we've worked together for 2 years now. Brenda is organised, thorough, good communicator and very responsive to my business and clients' needs. She has helped me develop and sends regular Email and Facebook schedule to help me keep a personal service for my clients. She also came up with a great marketing campaign over Christmas for my business that I would never thought of without her. Orange Umbrella has become an essential service for my business.

Brenda's Ultimate Guide to Facebook Ad Campaigns is great! So much value in it and lots of useful information. I wish I'd had something like this when I first started, it would have saved me so much time!

Keeping in regular contact with your email list is essential whether they are potential leads or active clients especially for the fitness industry. I was struggling to do this consistently until Brenda at Orange Umbrella came to the rescue! I bumped into her on a business group on Facebook and have never looked back even though I'm in the UK and Orange Umbrella is in Australia. Brenda writes two emails a week for me to send out to clients to keep them accountable, provide valuable content and give them extra workouts to do at home plus a healthy recipe. The feedback from clients has been great, but more importantly it's helped free up my time to work more on my business.
