Liz Hardwick | DigiEnable

After graduating from the University of Central Lancashire in 2005, Liz embarked on a career in media technology, landing a job within a community arts & media production charity Prescap as a Studio Manager. Her role was to design and build studio spaces, but also up skill individuals to feel more confident working within media and technology settings. After six years at the charity, Liz established herself as a freelance speaker and trainer, talking at events across the UK on the subject of self-promotion and marketing using emerging technologies. This led to the creation of DigiEnable, a digital training provider focused on working with those yet to see the potential of integrating technology into their businesses, or those that had seen the potential but needed to increase their staff capacity to utilise it.

DigiEnable is now an award-winning, part-digital training company, part search marketing provider, and works with businesses across the UK.

Liz’s other previous roles have included an elected seat on the Communications Committee for BECTU (Broadcast, Entertainment, Communication and Theatre Union), Community Media Association, and Lancashire Artists Network. She is currently a director and board member for Digital Lancashire, Chair of the National Women’s Committee (BECTU), National Executive Committee (BECTU), on the organising team for Women in Tech North UK and an AllBright Ambassador.

Liz is a regular blogger and has guest blogged for a number of high profile websites on the subject of using tech in business including Digital Leaders, Eventbrite and Linux Magazine. She has been featured as a chapter author for a book entitled Creative Education, Teaching and Learning published by Palgrave.
