I’ve been working in media and communications since 1997 – that’s 23 years! Time flies when you love what you do.
I’ve had the most amazing career so far. I have worked in crazy, wild places like Mongolia with the UN and AusAID. I have worked with some of the most vulnerable people in the world with USAID in East Timor. I have worked in super-fast paced ABC radio and the artsy community radio scene with RTRFM. I have run a community newspaper in the Northern Territory, and more recently I have worked with organisations to build their own brand and help them to find their amazing stories to tell the world.
I believe humans need stories – we need to tell them, we need to hear them, and we need to learn from them. Even in the cut throat world of marketing, the best campaigns come back to the ability to find and tell a story that people can relate to.
They cannot know unless you tell them. Let me help you to them.
Your website should tell a story. If the content is patchy and has lots of authors, it’ll be hard to read. I can make if flow and easy for the user to understand the amazing work you do.
If posting to social media is like pulling your teeth out, I can take the pain away. Regular posts that are dedicated to adding value for your audience is so important to making social media work for you.
They come around so fast. Good annual reports require good planning, they have to look professional, and tell a story about the incredible achievements made that year.
Knowing how to write releases so the media take notice is hard. Having been on the other side, I know what works and what doesn’t.
By the hour
As a general rule, I cost between $100 to $200 per hour depending on the type of work and type of organisation. Hourly rates are the best option for you when you know what needs to be done, but not sure about the process for getting there. That way we can keep things on an as needs basis.
Perhaps you want me to give your website a facelift, tidy up your corporate identity, help to create a communications strategy, manage a photo library, or write your annual report.
For an agreed fee, you can rely on me to manage all your media needs on an ongoing basis. This might include managing your social media accounts, writing your newsletter and keeping your website up to date.

As a web developer it is great to work with Anna because of her broad understanding of media. She takes photos, manages approvals process, writes content and works with clients to knuckle down the look and feel. Working with Anna on projects, makes my job much easier.
Anna was the missing link in my team as a web developer. She is a great writer and I use her to write website copy for websites that I develop. I enjoy working with her and hope to work with her more in the future.
