Simon Wong (or Wongy, if you prefer) has been producing content since he was 18 months old.
While his choice of media at the time (freshly-painted living room walls) didn't exactly meet his parents’ approval, things did get better.
The first piece of effective content he remembers creating was to a girl in kinder, asking her to go out with him. (Thank you for getting his career off to a great start, Azlina.)
After that, there was no turning back.
He’s helped build brands from telcos to trucks and from shampoo to shorts, in markets as diverse as Singapore, Saipan, New Zealand and New Caledonia. And he’s worked on content for everything from apps to television commercials.
Right before forming Team Content, he was Melbourne Content Lead at Deloitte Digital for more than four years, spending his days (and many nights) helping clients with their content strategy solutions, as well as creating engaging content for all forms of digital media.
He's recently spoken at CSForum, a global content strategy conference, and was on the judging panel at both the Australian Web Awards and AMY Awards.
It's a career that has taken him across four continents, given him some shiny pieces of metal to put on his mantlepiece and, most importantly, helped him feed his family.
