Author, Journalist & Strategic Communications specialist
I offer clients strategic counsel and communications expertise drawn from more than 20 years working in high-pressure environments, from newsrooms to board rooms, political campaigns to corporate crisis management.
I have been: a New York-based foreign correspondent, a member of the Canberra press gallery, an adviser to some of Australia's top CEOs via their peak body, and a consultant with one of the world's leading campaign strategists and pollsters.
What have I gained from these experiences?
They taught me the immense power of converting complex communications problems into compelling narratives that engage and activate their target audiences.
They gave me an impeccable contact book and an insider's familiarity with Australia's corridors of power.
They ensured I now have an utterly fearless approach to deadlines.
And they endowed me with a rich appreciation of creative minds, plus the ability to maintain grace and humour under pressure.
