Benefit from more than a decade of marketing and communications experience growing local and national brands.

Motivating people to consider. To participate. To try. To buy. To think differently.

Getting people to act is something I’ve built my career on. I’ve led national strategy and teams, driven digital transformation and spearheaded major campaigns including the most successful World’s Greatest Shave marketing campaign in its 20-year history.

As a marketing communications consultant and freelancer based in Adelaide, I like to work with the stumped and swamped. The people who are passionate about what they do but find it hard to see how they can improve their marketing and communications from within. And those who don’t have enough resources – or the right ones – to tackle what needs to be done.

My happy clients include:

  • South Australian Department of The Premier & Cabinet’s Open State Festival, YourSAy and Fund My Neighbourhood Teams
  • Climate Change Services Australia
  • St Augustine’s Parish School
  • BDO
  • and Dubai based firm, Plenitude Partners.

I honed my skills in designing effective awareness and event recruitment campaigns over many years as national Head of Marketing & Communications at the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia. In this role I also learned how to successfully build high-performing geographically dispersed teams and lifted the level of public disclosure to earn the charity a Top 10 ranking in the national PwC Transparency Awards for three years running.

I’ve facilitated and contributed to panels and presented a Big Digital Adelaide on how charities can use digital media to test advertising creative and messaging. I’ve also served on the Australasian Leukaemia & Lymphoma Group Marketing Committee, on the judging panels of the Luminous Awards for excellence in oncology journalism and Australian Marketing Institute Awards, and a mentor for the Australian Marketing Institute and UniSA.

If you aren’t sure what you need, are disappointed with your results or want someone to crack on with a project that’s been languishing on your to do list for too long, contact me.
