Program Director, Film and Television, University of South Australia

Working with Stuart from Sleeping Bear exceeded my expectations. In the past, developers have promised the world and as soon as payment went through they were gone. But Stuart and his team have really helped make my website more accessible and user friendly. I have recommended them to other business owners enthusiastically!

Stuart went above and beyond in sorting out my website and hosting. He was responsive to all my questions, he is very approachable and is able to speak in non-jargon like terms which made the process really good. I am very pleased with the work done by Stuart and his team at Sleeping Bear and will be keen to work further with them on marketing and blogging. I contacted many other website companies who said my business was too small to work with! Please don’t hesitate in contacting  Sleeping Bear for your website and marketing needs. I highly recommend them.- Sharmaine-Cherie- Inclusive Yoga Owner and Operator. www.sharmainecherie.com.au

I engaged Stuart Baulk to improve NASAA’s social media profile. When he was first engaged, NASAA had little or no use of Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. In the first year,  NASAA built a following of over 30,000 Facebook likes, 1,000+ Twitter followers and over 100 LinkedIn followers. Stuart’s expertise in managing these platforms, contributed significantly to our success in growing their effectiveness. I would recommend Stuart to you.

Stuart is a team player, technical all-rounder, and has an excellent understanding of research methods and issues in relation to the Rail Industry. I think his real talents are in creative science communication, and he seems to thrive on a new challenge with incredibly creative potential. At CQUniversity we worked together on a number of projects including a published Human Factors book cover, and a poster presentation which went on to win the best poster award from over 100 submissions. Both of have helped me share and promote my research and expertise to the next level. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Stuart’s services have been an integral part of my urban planning and demography business from the initial planning stages in 2017. He set up the domain and  hosting for my website and email, and helped me with the development of my website. He has a great knowledge of setting up and managing websites, and the solutions offered by different hosting companies. His extensive multidisciplinary knowledge combined with his great communication skills, his trustworthiness and passion make him an invaluable asset. For anyone starting a company, or brushing up a website, I highly recommend his services.

Dr Hulya Gilbert

Principal Consultant, Planning Perspectives Plus

Stuart proved to be invaluable in providing creative input, especially in coming up with left field ideas both for production and in problem solving. His ability to communicate within the team and to the broader audience was exemplary. The high quality of our output was clearly in part due to the high quality of Stuart’s input.

Sleeping Bear helped us to create a brand new online presence from start to finish in 2013, and we are growing all the time as a result. From getting a logo design, to securing a domain name and hosting, through to planning a photoshoot, collating the content, and finally developing the website design and making it happen. Stuart has helped us to raise our profile and connect with patients all across the Darwin area.

Dr Damien Spry

Senior Research, Defence, Science and Technology

Stuart and I are both volunteer members of Friends of Blackwood Forest and with Stuarts skills in IT and websites he took on our platforms (that needed serious upgrading!). He built us a facebook page first up and then worked on an overhaul of our website. He did this through using it as a project for his web design class at the University of South Australia. Each student paired up with a volunteer group and built them a website and Stuart used ours as a teaching tool as he went through the semester. At end of semester we had a new website. We collaborated on design, Stuart pulled together a draft and we circulated that to other Friends members for feedback then went into final draft and publication. It was really a collaborative effort.

Dr. Stuart Baulk has wealth of knowledge in presenting information to the public and learned audiences alike. He is a master of graphics and true word smith and is able to assist with communication to varied audiences whether it be for marketing purposes or pure science! I highly recommend Stuart’s services.

Professor Gerard Kennedy

Lecturer, RMIT

Stuart has many strings to his bow. From a background in sleep research and a love of music and film making he has nurtured his creative side and is now expressing it via web design. In a social setting we discussed our previous website (which I wasn’t  happy with) and without me having to ask, he looked at it, did his research and provided some ideas. After a more formal meeting we discussed them, I provided him with some material including photos and in just over a week we had a brilliant website which did everything I wanted it to do (not what a designer thought I wanted!). Check it out for yourself at www.vinumoz.com.au.

I have known Stuart since 2003 when we worked together at UniSA. Stuart was one of the key people who assisted me with settling into my role with regard to IT and other support. Our paths crossed again at Integrated Safety Support, Stuart worked with clients in  fatigue risk management. His creative talents were instrumental in the early development of the ISS website. Later, Stuart and I were able to work together on the development of a training workbook. Stuart’s skills expanded to using Adobe InDesign which enabled him to put together training resources in a professional and highly intuitive format. Stuart has a wonderful energy, is personable, and a great team member. He is a creative, a thinker, and infuses his roles and tasks with great spirit!

Jeanie Pantahos

Finance Manager, Integrated Safety Support

We engaged Stuart to research the impact of Fatigue on shift working in our business, his work was beneficial to the development of Fatigue Management guidelines & assisting us to develop suitable controls to manage fatigue. I found Stuart to be exceptionally professional and very skilled in his line of work, I would not hesitate in recommending Stuart to assist any business or organisation.
