OUR SERVICES

Strategy Development

It all starts here.  Built on the foundation of client goals, a well-devised and integrated communications plan helps ensure consistency across all written, digital and spoken channels. We believe that communications activity is not an end in itself, but should serve and be aligned with the client’s overall strategic direction, brand, culture and values.

Media Relations

It’s all about relationships with media. Creating, nurturing and managing those relationships is what we do best and the results show. Sourcing media opportunities; drafting, editing and issuing media releases; pitching story ideas; arranging media briefings and photo-calls, it’s part of our DNA.

Copywriting

 We put together engaging content that empowers key audiences and tells the client’s story. Anything from corporate and employee profiles, e- news, presentations, brochures to flyers and signage, we ensure the messaging, format and style are the right fit for the audience.

Issues Management

The key to issues management is being prepared. No matter how large or small a business or organisation, issues may arise that can seriously diminish the brand and hard-earned reputation. We recommend to clients a proactive approach to avoid or minimise the impact of a potential crisis. Workshopping with a client to identify potential issues that might attract adverse media attention or negative online attack, we prepare responses in advance and devise a plan for strategic and timely delivery, if required.

Brand Communications

We work closely with a boutique brand communications agency whose expertise across the strategic and creative disciplines, delivers engaging and powerful customer experiences. Briefing and managing graphic designers, overseeing the creative process and owning the strategy behind the collateral, that’s their thing and we love their work.

WHAT OTHERS SAY …

“I’ve worked with Michelle on a number of famils and other media opportunities and have on every occasion been impressed by her product knowledge, professionalism and efficiency. The fact that she is a keen cyclist herself is evident in the depth of her product knowledge and her industry contacts – both cycling and the regions at large. At the same time, Michelle’s understanding of the media means that she is highly effective in identifying and tailoring newsworthy angles.”

– Lisa Hunt – Destination Communications Manager- Tourism Victoria

“For knowledge of cycling and cycling tourism, there are none better than Michelle Armstrong, who has knowledge, experience and insight that I’ve found invaluable in my work as a writer. I’ve shared a challenging ride with Michelle in regional Victoria and taken several other cycling trips organised by Michelle. Each time the itinerary and experience has been first-rate, enhanced by her intimate knowledge of a cyclist’s unique requirements, resulting in a broad range of articles and story angles for a cross-section of national and international media.”
