About May King Tsang: the tutor

May King Tsang

Hello there.  My name is May King Tsang.  My first name is May King and I founded MayKing Tea in 2010 in the UK.   An opportunity took me took me to Australia 6 months later. Without knowing a single person, I used Social Media to get known, and created Australia’s first support-for-business Facebook Group: Queensland Business Group. The group currently supports over 7500 business owners offering free advice, support and referrals.

I returned to the UK 10 months ago and have continued to be sought out for my Social Media consultancy, my Business Mentoring and Live Tweeting skills because of the work I built on Social Media to gain people’s trust; demonstrate leadership, experience and authority. During these courses, I will be able to show you how you can also be known on Social Media for your expertise which, in turn will help you to gain more customers, more business, and more opportunities.

I am currently representing Google as part of their #Digital Garage initiative as a Business Mentor for small businesses and students, and a Keynote Speaker on topics of Digital Marketing especially Social Media Marketing, Personal Branding, and Search Engine Optimisation.
