I turn boring corporate talk into meaningful stories. Ex-head of PR and Communications at Canva, based in Sydney. Previously with CSIRO's technology R&D arm, Data61 (previously National ICT of Australia), Red Agency (part of Havas), Ogilvy PR, Recognition PR, and Edelman (Sydney and Hong Kong).
In my four years at Red, I was part of the senior team which led Red Agency to its best year on the awards front in 2014 – named by Public Relations Institute of Australia, PRWeek Asia and CommsCon as 2014 PR Agency of The Year and a further 25+ campaign awards at both international and national award shows. Some of my notable achievements include managing one of the first PR campaigns in Australia to win a Cannes Lion.
It's not every day you get to make a difference to many, but I've been fortunate to be able to work with several NFPs including The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation, Oscar's Law, WWF, The Sony Foundation, The UN Foundation, One Young World, Vital Voices and The Prince's Rainforest Project.
