Who is Thea Newcomb?Who Is Thea Newcomb?

Welcome to the Thea Newcomb website, I am Thea. This is a blog talking about my life, my work, and my interests and passions. Essentially this blog mixes business and pleasure. Read on to learn a bit more…

What I Do…

It’s never easy answering the “what do you do?” question. It varies according to who I am speaking to. You see, I do several things.

For a “day job” I travel all across central Scotland (and sometimes from the Borders to the Highlands and Islands)- delivering workshops and training to groups.

I also do bespoke one-to-one tuition as well.


The main workshop delivered through Business Gateway (and via my own consulting company to organisations and individuals) is Creating Killer Graphics with Canva. Have been delivering this workshop for a few years now and it tends to be fun and practical, thus it’s a real crowd-pleaser.


My main side hustle is Merch – tshirts and other merchandise. I sell designs on Amazon (“Merch by Amazon”), Red Bubble and TeePublic primarily and I am obsessed with it.


Since November 2014, the day it launched in the UK, I have been a Younique Presenter and Sponsor. My main content about this makeup and cosmetics brand is shared over on Glatitude but sometimes I do blog about it here.


Recently launched (relaunched?) First Wednesday Networking in Glasgow.It is a FREE monthly networking event that takes place at the Village Hotel on the First Wednesday of every month

My Background

I am a Silicon Valley gal, now based in Glasgow, Scotland. Since graduating with a BA degree in Communications, I have gained nearly thirty year’s experience in the Media and New Media sectors.

Acquired a PGdip in E-Business – for whatever that’s worth…

Delivered workshops for Business Gateway, Digital Boost, the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI Scotland) and the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transport as well.

My personal favourite type of training delivered on a one-to-one basis through my own consulting company – Thea Newcomb Training and Consultancy – but I also deliver Digital Boost through NSDesign. I have had the pleasure of working with Gary at NSDesign for around eight years now.
