The following achievements demonstrate my media and publicity capabilities.
These example deliverables are from my two year contract with the Melbourne Institute of Applied Social and Economic Research, at Melbourne University, while I was in the role of Communications and Publicity Manager.
I wrote the Melbourne Institute media releases on social research findings, working papers, and macroeconomic reports.
I coordinated generating publicity for the numerous public lectures by Professor Ross Garnaut AO [pictured] — e.g. the New Resources Tax [13 May 2010].
I invited and coordinated all media attending the two-day 2009 Social & Economic Outlook Conference [5-6 November] opened by the Hon John Brumby. I prepared media kits and facilitated door-stop interviews. Four television crews attended some of the highlight sessions.
I have built media relationships with key editors and industry associations relevant to three major research programs within the Melbourne Institute:1. Medicine in Australia, Balancing Employment and Life (MABEL) — a longitudinal survey of 10,000 Australian doctors.2. The Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia (IPRIA) program.3. The Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey Statistical Conference, and annual reports 2008 and 2009.
I summarised research and sent it as media releases to over 800 national media editors, journalists and broadcast commentators.
