About

SocialEyes are Julie Leadbeater and Nigel Tabbron. We are married with a son and living in Southfields in SW London on the Wandsworth-Merton border.

Between us we have a pretty wide range of experience of industries: engineering, fitness, pub management, IT project management, event management and teaching maths to name just the ones we can think of off the tops of our heads. Our varied experience and sound IT skills make us ideally suited to supporting SMEs in their use of Social Media, especially in identifying  the platforms best suited to your business and quick and efficient set-up.

Nigel’s background is largely in Information and Communications Technology, formerly having been an IT Project Manager, holding both the Prince 2 practitioner certificate and the ITIL service delivery qualification. He’s worked with computers practically since the days of punch-cards, generally in a retail environment. His favourite job however was as a relief pub manager and he’s seen some interesting pubs! You should get him to tell you about his time at the Castle……. and I’m not telling you which one!

Julie Leadbeater Julie was originally a mechanical design engineer and has got to where she is now by a fairly tortuous route, taking in teaching maths and aerobics and event management on the way, although her favourite job by far was silver-service waitressing.

Julie is also a partner in The Social Media Bureau.

 

In our spare time

Julie sings in a choir – Nige doesn’t and let’s leave it at that; we are both keen tennis players and Nige shows off his trivia by doing pub quizzes (and moonlighting as Nige The Quiz).

Both of us are social animals and involvement in social media has been almost inevitable. It’s great to be working with SMEs predominantly in our local area, offering both Social Media Management and Social Media Training.
