When Fleur started her career in PR, we were still faxing press releases to newsrooms. 15 years later, she has ridden the wave of the evolution of the PR industry in Australia and contributed to the enormous value it brings brands.
Fleur is an award winning business woman and an expert in strategic communications across all platforms. A recognised industry expert, Fleur and her team have been responsible for the successful launches and campaigns of literally thousands of local, nation and international brands.
Fleur started off her career on the other side of the fence as a journalist/ reporter for The Sunday Mail, ABC TV news, Channel Seven Sunshine Coast, Nine Gold Coast newsrooms, and Today Tonight.
