How Tom Willis became a small business marketing guru


He may be the co-founder of one of Australia’s most successful legal startups, but Tom Willis’s driving purpose is to help businesses be seen. Marketing is his raison d’être and he’s spent over a decade at the forefront of the digital marketing space.

As General Assembly’s go-to lecturer for all things marketing, he’s taught thousands of students, marketers and business owners the ABCs of the latest digital trends. He joins us on First Act to tell us how he got the marketing bug and why he’s so passionate about sharing his wisdom.
