SMROE episode 9: with Podcasting Pro James Tew


In this episode of the ‘Social Media Rules of Engagement Podcast’ I talk Podcasting 101 with one of Australia’s most prolific expert podcasters – James Tew.

James is the founder and host of The Rebrand Podcast (, Australia’s only podcast delivering bit sized inspiration, 7 days a week. With over 7 years experience in the Australian Defence Force, James is harnessing his skills of communication, motivational speaking and training to help people of all walks of life turn their passion into a business and achieve their mission in life. The father of three girls (and another on the way), if he isn’t online, James is usually playing dress ups or singing to the Frozen soundtrack.”
