Meet the tutor

This online course is taught by the founder of Social Mums, Gemma Lloyd.

Gemma has over 15 years experience in marketing, working as an account manager in the UK’s third largest regional creative agency with clients such as Sky Bet and The Law Society.

In 2015 Gemma retrained by doing the Digital Mums social media management course in a bid to find a more flexible career to fit around her two young children.

She hasn’t looked back and has since worked with a large number of parent focused businesses, some managing their social media long term and others on shorter term campaigns to launch new products or services.

She has also been running many of the Social Mums workshops and training sessions since 2017 as well as 1:1 training sessions, equipping small business owners with the skills needed to take their social media to the next level.

She found that lots of self-taught social media managers were joining her various training sessions, so in 2020 she launched the Social Media Manager Programme to offer anyone looking to work as a Social Media Manager all of the training and support they would need.

She has since trained and mentored over 30 women in small groups to become Social Media Managers. In order to make her training accessible and affordable to more she created the Social Media Manager Online Course.
