“Liz Nes is my social media saviour! She’s the curator of the BayBuzz Facebook presence. I depend on her to be fully up to speed on what the platform offers technically, to be proactive in recommending how it can best be used to meet our communications needs, and to make sound and timely judgments about adding content that reflects our brand and engages our audience. And she has never let me down. Five stars!”
