Welcome back to Season 2 of Happy Porch Radio.

One of the most fun things about doing this show is speaking to really amazing Agency professionals and hearing the fascinating stories of different agencies & – crucially – learning so much from the insights they share.

So, in this episode, I am very pleased to be able to introduce Elizabeth Gibbons to you.

Elizabeth is Business Development Manager at (zero)seven, a digital development house in the heart of Brisbane, Australia.

I really enjoyed hearing the story of (zero)seven (another agency that had a custom CMS back in the day!) and how they where solely focused on Umbraco for many years and have now expanded to use other platforms as well.
