The Digital Women Digital Creator of The Year recognises and celebrates those who are creating the best content for their communities or audiences. These individuals have built influence through the digital content they create which has opened up new and exciting opportunities for them.
Here are your finalists:
Katie Thompson – Katie Lingo
I like to combine my knowledge with my influence, and I’m never afraid to take on new challenges or speak to new people. This has helped me take my clients forward and prepare them for the next step in digital.
I’m Katie, and I’m here to take on the content tasks that are too daunting for you and your teams. Providing a unique mix of journalistic and digital marketing experience, I can provide content for a wealth of different mediums, all on-time, on-brand and with a smile.
When you work with me, you’ll have round the clock access to new ideas, quick changes and high-quality content. I believe in getting to know all my customers personally and really understanding a brand to ensure its marketing has the maximum effect.
I’m happy to help with blogs, magazine features, press releases, email campaigns, proofreading and anything else related to the written word. Whoever you are and wherever you are, you can guarantee your brand will be represented in the best light possible when you work with Katie Lingo.
Jovana Paredes – Jovie’s Home
I just want to make the best, most helpful content I can. It’s my hope to assist others with a smooth transition into their new expat life by sharing my own mistakes and challenges. It feels great to hear from Dutch viewers how much my videos also help them to appreciate their own country. When I can achieve putting a smile on someone’s face or teaching them something new, that’s an incredible achievement on its own 🙂
My name is Jovie and I am a Serbian/Canadian/American Expat Mama (married to a Spanish/Frenchman) living in and LOVING The Netherlands.
I moved to The Netherlands with my husband in 2009 to work as international criminal lawyers at one of the tribunals in The Hague. Eventually, I became a YouTube-from-home mom.
I make videos about life in The Netherlands as a foreigner. The goal of my videos is to teach viewers how something works in NL; to share my observations of Dutch life and culture and to get to know my home country. I don’t always get it right but I am always happy to learn.
Won’t you come on over, kick off your shoes and stay a while?

Rebecca Highfield & Georgia Hatton – Marketing Island
As our knowledge and passions grew we realised there was a real gap in the online space for a marketing hub aimed at females in the industry. We wanted to create, grow and nurture a community of females in the marketing industry while building a space that sparked thought, inspiration, debate and advice.
Marketing Island is an online marketing magazine, promising compelling content for females in the digital, marketing and advertising industry.
I’m firstly a mum and I fit my business around my 4-year-old autistic son. I started in business because my career in journalism no longer worked for me.
I built my coaching and training business helping CEOs feel more confident on camera, and realised there was a gap in the market for courses aimed at small business owners.
I created the course over several months, and they took off. As I began to get noticed, I was approached by other influencers to create courses with them (the blogger, Honest Mum and PR Jack Freud from IP Publicity) and also Psychologies Magazine.
Lucy Griffiths helps women tell stories and increase their influence and impact the world. She’s a video strategist and confidence coach who helps you to get the confidence to find your voice and speak up and own your power. Her courses have now sold over 15,000 worldwide, and she works with corporate clients, entrepreneurs and business owners to harness the power of video, and tell stories more effectively on screen and in meetings.
Lucy is a columnist for Psychologies Magazine talking about confidence, the imposter syndrome, and speaking up even though you’re scared. She is now a Founder / Director of a joint venture with Psychologies Magazine building a digital platform creating courses for the magazine.
Lucy also partners with influencers such as Honest Mum to use their leverage to sell educational courses and elearning.
Congratulations to these incredible, attention orientated and skilled women!
