Sam Mutimer

 

 

 

 

A broken leg in 2008 (while playing rugby for the UK) was the tipping point for one of Thinktank Scouts founders, Sam Mutimer, when she became aware of the true power of social media and how it plays a role in branding and business as a whole. Sam launched her own company, Thinktank Social in 2011, as a ‘niche’ social media agency – one of Australia’s very first.

She now is following her passion to assist athletes, clubs, academies and organisations, to support and empower the “entrepreneurial” athlete to business success.
