Tourism’s web wonder woman named as digital champion

Tourism Tribe’s chief digital officer and digital strategist, Fabienne Wintle, has earned the title of digital champion in the Advance Queensland Community Digital Champions program.

The Queensland Government program recognises individuals who undertake activities within their communities to help improve Queensland’s digital literacy and digital adoption. Nominated by the Tourism Division, Department of Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games, Ms Wintle was this month announced as the latest Digital Champion for the state.

Nicknamed Australian tourism’s ‘Web Wonder Woman,’ Ms Wintle’s extensive experience and expertise has seen her train more than 6,000 Queensland and Australia-wide businesses to make the most of online tools.

In addition to her being a founding director of Tourism Tribe, Ms Wintle has been a director on the Board of the Queensland Tourism Industry Council and is a volunteer committee member for the Discovery Coast Tourism and Commerce organisation and commits numerous hours per week assisting the local tourism community grow its online footprint.

Ms Wintle will continue to provide monthly training around the state as well as fortnightly newsletters and free half hour one-on-one training sessions with tourism operators to boost their digital marketing efforts and strategies.
