I’ve been blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with a variety of excellent organisations and individuals, some of which are listed below. If you would like a referral please contact me and I’ll tell you who to talk to.
Not for Profit organisations
FDIO is the Forum for Directors of Indigenous Organisations. They prepare, support and advise Boards, Directors and Executives of Aboriginal organisations to practice effective, culturally informed governance. I am assisting them to develop their messaging and marketing collateral and with the planned update of their website.
PATRICIA GILES CENTRE help women and children affected by family and domestic violence to find safety, security and stability so they can get their lives back on track. Always working towards a future free from family and domestic violence, they support, empower and educate. I have developed a range of brochures for them aimed at engaging donors and supporters.
ADVOCARE is the peak body for aged care in WA. As an independent, not for profit organisation they do vitally important work to protect and promote the rights of seniors. I have assisted them to develop their messaging for clients and for the aged care sector, have prepared some targeted advertising for them, and have written their soon to be launched new website.
ECHO COMMUNITY SERVICES support older people and people with disabilities to live with dignity and independence in their own homes. I have assisted them with writing and editing a range of publications as well as with preparing Expressions of Interest and Tenders.
REBOUND WA is the new name for Wheelchair Sports WA. They provide information, advocacy, sport and recreational activities and community to Western Australians living with physical disability. I’ve helped them with a communications plan to complement their rebrand, and have written content for new brochures, social media and their new website.
EPIC operates in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. EPIC stands for Empowering People in Communities – and essentially that is what they do. Through a range of services and programs they support many people to live a more connected life. I’ve assisted them with writing and editing tenders as well as content for their Annual Report and their brand new website.
TENANCY WA provides free, independent, quality legal services to residential tenants anywhere in Western Australia. They advise, support, educate and empower law and policy reform in tenancy in WA. I have written their Annual Reports for 2014/15 and 2015/16, the content for their new website and helped them to develop a narrative and brochures aimed at securing partners for a variety of their programs including Safe as Houses, which aims to prevent homelessness for women and children escaping family and domestic violence.
SCALES is a community legal centre that provides legal and community education services to the Rockingham and Kwinana community. They also play an instrumental role in training Murdoch University’s law students who participate in their clinical legal education program. I have written and developed a booklet for them celebrating their 20th Anniversary as well as written their 2016/17 Annual Report.
CARBON NEUTRAL CHARITABLE FUND encourages you to balance out the carbon emissions you generate in your everyday life, by buying local reforestation carbon offsets. Then they plant trees and restore our unique natural habitat. I have written publications and web content for CNCF as well as assisting them with their media.
OUTCARE does wonderful work by providing services, programs and support to people in prison, those just released, those at risk of entering prison and the families of prisoners. I wrote content for their new website, developed a new brochure style, wrote a variety of service brochures, developed an interim style manual and wrote and managed the production of their 2013/14 Annual Report.
Authors and artists
LIZ BYRSKI is a best selling writer and former journalist. She’s written ten novels and thirteen non-fiction books and has been involved in several anthologies. And she is also an Associate Professor at Curtin University. I have developed and continue to manage her website, as well as advise on social media and general communications strategies.
ROSEMARY SAYER is an author, writer, academic, researcher and communications expert. Her latest book called More to the story – conversations with refugees, looks beyond negative media reports, political speeches and fear-mongering statistics to tell human stories of refugees and asylum seekers in Australia. I developed and continue to manage the website for the book, as well as advise on social media and general marketing strategies.
PAT DIXON is an amazing textile artist who uses felt making and paper making techniques with materials such as wool, silk fibre and silk fabrics to create original and interesting artworks. The result is contemporary design meets ancient art forms. I created her website for her and am helping her to develop some innovative marketing strategies.
NICK MELIDONIS is a supremely talented photographic artist who also runs inspiring photography tours, and passes on his knowledge via workshops and mentoring. I’ve helped him with an update of his web content and some communications strategies.
Small to medium businesses
ANSON is a management consulting business that specialises in assisting WA community service organisations to expand, adapt, develop and continue to create social value. I’m assisting them to clarify and progress their own marketing and communications including developing a booklet outlining all of their services, rewriting their website and developing marketing plans and collateral for their products and services.
OTA LANDSCAPES is a small business that creates gorgeous landscapes and gardens for residential and commercial clients. I have updated and upgraded their website and now manage it. I’m also in the process of doing the same thing for their parent company Outback Trees of Australia.
AURENDA provides personalised expertise in injury prevention and management. They are absolutely a cut above the others in their field. I assisted them with their marketing, messaging and positioning strategies.
