A recent highlight was hosting an on-stage chat with Apple cofounder Steve Wozniack at Auckland’s Aotea Centre.

By day, Vaughn is the owner and creative director of advertising and social media business The Goat Farm, host of Radio Live show Sunday Social, a business tech columnist for the Sunday Star Times and a regular commentator on TV and radio.

Vaughn has a particular passion for using social media to help businesses connect with people. In 2010 he wrote New Zealand’s first book on social media, Tweet this Book, which has so far had over 25,000 readers worldwide.

At the weekends Vaughn tends his small farm and flies his aeroplane. He once landed a much bigger aeroplane on a sheet of floating ice in Antarctica but that was ages ago.
