Welcome to Kiwis in Business.
Kiwis in Business founder Linda Shackelford has been running a boutique media business, Expand PR, for over five years now, and has always been hugely impressed and supportive of her fellow New Zealanders who have built some amazing businesses from scratch.
Kiwis in Business was launched in April 2020 and since then has organically grown to a community of over 10K on Instagram, Facebook, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and iHeartRadio. All businesses featured on the podcast are showcased on Instagram, Facebook and also LinkedIn.
Each week, you will hear some inspiring stories, some quirky stories, the goals and challenges of our Kiwi entrepreneurs, and you will be inspired by some general business-to-business owner chit chat.
Linda and her co-host Phil love nothing more than exploring the different personalities and skillsets of innovative and entrepreneurial people all around the country as they share their knowledge and insights with us.
"As a former journalist, I’m super curious and passionate about what makes successful Kiwi businesses tick," says Linda.
"The world is facing an incredibly challenging time, there is a lot of information to take in, and a lot of uncertainty. However, this gives us the opportunity to put our local lens on to celebrate the wonderful and innovative things that are happening in businesses and communities around us."
Join us, and many small Kiwi business owners in a series of informal, yet informative interviews.
SEASON 5 IS COMING SOON - ENQUIRE NOW
Behind every business, no matter what the industry, there is an inspiring story to be told.
"It was a joy working with Linda and her team for our podcast and press release, which secured many media coverage items for Spacebar Design. Linda was helpful and very responsive during the entire process, great communication, and proactive in all interactions. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking for real results." Anson Kong, Spacebar Design
"I was interviewed by Linda for her Kiwis in Business podcast. It was such an incredible experience for my first podcast. Linda has great energy and really put me at ease during the process. It was a relaxed and fun experience for me. The biggest bonus was that only 2 days after the podcast went live I gained a new client who booked a 3 session therapy package with me after a friend sent her the podcast to listen to. I highly recommend being interviewed for Kiwis in Business!" Lorraine Maguire, Lorraine Maguire Therapy
"I really enjoyed being interviewed for the Kiwis in Business Podcast. It was a nice opportunity to talk about my business journey. After the podcast we received a lot of engagement through both our and Kiwis in Business' social media channels. Also, Linda wrote a press release for us which resulted in 2 business publications picking up the story and featuring us. All in all it was a very positive experience which I'd highly recommend". Andrew Ferdinando, Insightful and AD HOC
"I highly recommend working with Linda, she will go above and beyond to do as much as she can for your business. It is very clear that she knows what she is doing and her contacts and reach is amazing! I highly recommend getting on board with a podcast with her." Jodie Rainsford, James dog beds & accessories
