As an accomplished corporate communications professional, I am skilled at developing, implementing, managing and measuring engaging communication strategies that drive positive stakeholder responses.
I have extensive experience in the creation and management of communication, media and online stakeholder engagement strategies, successfully leveraging a variety of channels for both the private sector as well as different levels of government. Drawing on my strong interpersonal and communication skills, I consistently deliver effective communications solutions; thorough campaign planning and analysis; and creation, execution and distribution of engaging and informative collateral.
I am also a passionate people leader, who has led diverse, high performing and geographically dispersed teams through periods of significant organisational and global change. Leveraging digital tools to problem solve, effectively connect and motivate, I have built supportive and productive teams that have successfully worked together to achieve stretch targets. I am also familiar and adept at leading gender and culturally diverse teams, with a focus on facilitating a happy, engaged and empowered team.
I work effectively across global teams both independently and as a team player, and have developed successful and influential working relationships with stakeholders at all levels of the business including CEOs and senior executives; technical experts; operational and site teams; as well as external program partners, vendors and key community organisations. I have also effectively represented organisations at key external events and meetings with Government representatives from all persuasions, and have managed external, employee and digital communications for a large number of complex crises including infrastructure failures and serious medical incidents.
As a result of my employment history, I have gained in-depth experience across a wide range of communications activities, both in private organisations as well as at all levels of government. Together with my education, this professional experience has facilitated the development of my strong written and oral communication skills, as well as the ability to interact appropriately and effectively with internal and external stakeholders including all levels of government, business and the public.
