Oliver Leeb, a certified Google Partner, has been a digital marketing professional for over a decade, having built websites since before there even was a Google.
He has a master’s degree in marketing from Curtin University and subsequently started his career in the junior exploration sector assisting with market research. Ultimately this evolved to managing the web, online and social presences of as many as three ASX-listed companies at a time, ensuring timely communication with shareholders and stakeholders.
In 2014, he founded 3am Ideas a digital marketing agency for small businesses & startups. He has since enjoyed helping companies with their growth attained through social media and other online channels.
Founding Facilit8 was another opportunity where he saw the chance to help local businesses build a referral network and make connections that are of genuine value.

Jamie along with Oliver Leeb believed there was a gap in Perth’s business networking organisations and grabbed the opportunity with both hands to found Facilit8. The pure focus being MEMBERS and valuing their time and commitment to attending the weekly breakfasts and sundowner each month. Jamie’s absolute philosophy is that the most important aspect of building your business is to ensure you nurture and grow business relationships as once a relationship is formed then trust is built and once trust is built then business can eventuate.
Giving back to the Business Community has been a passion of Jamie’s and now he is striving towards partnering with a NFP organization to also give back to the community a vision equally shared with Oliver Leeb and the valued members of Facilit8.
