Publicity & PR Mentor

Jannali, NSW |

After working in journalism for a decade, Phil opened her first PR agency in 1999. Offering her insider secrets to working with the media and teaching businesses how to be newsworthy, she built a high six -figure agency in six quick months. She has a passion for PR and publicity's power to grow a business.

Yet she could never understand why big business had all the PR fun. "Why should small businesses be relegated to the back of the class while bigger organisations with bigger PR budgets, whose products and services are not necessarily any better, get all the limelight?" Phil asks.

So she launched Publicity Express - offering products, programs and advice that help small business do their own PR; demonstrating that publicity isn't rocket science!
