 Greetings from Perth, Western Australia

Greetings from Perth, Western Australia

Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for 2016
Perth Media wishes you well over the festive season.  Here is some quick news, before our office closes, until January 20, 2016.

This year has been sensational and Perth Media worked with many new and exciting clients. These are, in turn, doing fantastic things in Australia and overseas. Perth Media clients include H2OX (Sydney-based and ASX-listed water exchange), Sevenpeaks professional services in Melbourne, Southern Forests Food Council, Partners in Grain WA's Inspire summit, Dr Stephanie Davies and Dr Nick Cooke (authors of Rewire Your Pain), a series of content and PR projects with Leadership WA (some are fascinating articles soon to be released), Farming Champions' events Farmer on Your Plate and members' dinner with WA Chief Scientist, Linkwest, Latasha's Kitchen, Isolated Childrens' Parents Association, Women in Global Business, Southcare, Rainbow Fun and Priority1. Media results for clients have included many articles and reports - in WA Business News, The Australian, community news, industry titles including Oil & Gas Australia, ABC radio, ABC News 24, AAP, SBS, Radio Fremantle, Curtin FM, The Countryman and Bloomberg TV, and many more. Not only do the stories generate interest in the companies and organisations, but press exposure adds to credibility.

Services growing in popularity include Perth Media's targeted media databases, which now feature general media lists as well as specific targets such as agriculture, medical and wellness, resources global, not-for-profit, lifestyle, oil and gas global, and fashion. Media strategy sessions for 2016 are also proving popular and these have been booked by six clients over January. While many clients are returning time and time again for editing, copywriting and media pitching assistance. Blogging work has increased substantially as clients continue to take advantage of sales, thanks to quality Linkedin posts and Facebook rewarding original content. Drafting written content for clients, including speeches and columns, has been a big growth area for Perth Media in 2015.

Furthermore, several new services are now offered at Perth Media. Masterclasses in media training TV are available, with the help of award-winning cameraman Jason Thomas. Jason is also doing corporate photography for Perth Media and video work.

In addition, WA press photographer of the year, Tony Mcdonough, has begun working with Perth Media and is another specialist industrial, corporate and news photographer, and we are very fortunate to have him on board, producing high-quality visuals. Perth Media is also working with Reg Sorrell to offer several animation options for clients.

A big welcome to Janine Taylor, who has decades of international experience in transcription at the highest level. Janine is transcribing many interviews behind the scenes for Perth Media's increasing written content production workload.

Then there is the ongoing community work. It is a great pleasure to continue to serve on the Linkwest board (an opportunity to learn many aspects of governance and give back to assist some of WA's most vulnerable), as well as donate regularly to Rafiki Mwema (Kenyan refuge for girls), We Cant Wait (building toilets for girls in India), World Vision and to contribute to Farming Champions at a committee level. Perth Media has supported Telethon Adventurers over the year. The internship program at Perth Media is under way, as well as some strategic events. The first of which is a school holiday session with magician Ghupi, which will be a lot of fun.

On the theme of innovation, in 2016, Perth Media plans to conduct a series of seminars in Shanghai on media, with partners who are specialists in business strategy and investor relations. It will explain clearly and practically how media strategies need to work alongside business and investor relations' strategies. Announcement of those details will be out in February! The trip will also be an opportunity to learn more about the evolving media sector in China. Stay tuned.

Enjoy your families and friends everyone.
See you back full time January 20,  2016.
