Here at Content Callout, we spend a lot of time telling you a variety of tips and tricks to make your content marketing and social media stand out. But we thought we’d take a second to introduce some of the team behind-the-scenes who keep everything running.

Meet our project manager, Amanda Au! Her last name is pronounced like OWWWWWW, and believe us: she’s heard all the jokes. On top of doing work with us, Amanda also does consulting for women-led and LGBTQIA-led small businesses. She also focuses on promoting local businesses on her Instagram account, @eat.shop.love.ab, that she runs with her sister.
