Adapters: Perth Media Films and Script Writing Wins Business for Our Clients

citynight.jpg

Perth Media public relations firm is increasing collaborations with Australian film makers to tell corporate clients' stories.

 Bristow has been a highlight. Working with Courtney Waller Productions, dramatic footage depicted a rescue by helicopter at sea. The resulting film was used as a tool to pitch for business.

“We told the story of the people behind Bristow, their striving for excellence and how that drove them to perform daring rescues safely,” Rocchi said.

"The work is indicative of how our small public relations company has evolved into a multi-media firm. We work closely with film makers to ensure the right footage is shot and films are scripted and edited carefully to include correct messages, crucial facts and other important material. Our clients are typically extremely busy, and don't have media experience, we are stepping into film production because films are extremely effective at connecting with audiences. For businesses, that means good films are winning new contracts and investors."

Torrance Mendez, Perth Media’s creative digital consultant, has written several scripts.

At the height of the bitcoin frenzy, he wrote a script to launch the newly formed International Council for the Virtual Economy which was agitating for a regulatory body for virtual currencies.

“Fortunes were being made overnight but there was genuine concern that virtual currencies posed unacceptable risk that included money laundering,” Mendez recalled.

The narrative had to support the currencies because they created wealth, and cautiously introduce the benefits of a regulatory body. The video was launched in Dubai.

Bernard Shaw, director of Perth-based Red Empire Media production company, hired an American narrator and shot a fast-paced film.

“Our clients gave us great feedback on Perth Media being able to grasp the sometimes difficult and unusual concepts,” Shaw said. “This was particularly so when writing a script for the International Council for the Virtual Economy, which needed a strong understanding of the banking industry.”

Companies generally want videos to promote a product or service or to raise money for projects.

Another WA firm Callidus wanted to promote its unique services, customer focus and high engineering skills, once again Perth Media's script writing came to the party, working with Courtney Waller Productions.

PERTH: Media content and public relations firm — Perth Media Pty Ltd — has opened a new office in Nedlands in line with continuing expansion plans.

The development is the latest news in a series of organic growth milestones for the Perth-based small business.

Perth Media managing director Cate Rocchi said: “Perth Media has, to date, been a small operation but we have consistently built powerful global profiles for our clients through tailored integrated media and communications services.

“We act in an advisory, creative and media service capacity and have a strong network of journalist and broadcast partners and connections, so are uniquely placed to deliver global-standard media management services in the sectors of finance, mining, renewables and agribusiness.”

The Perth Media team now includes editor/writer Torrance Mendez (formerly of The West Australian).

“Our team — which has welcomed high calibre artists, photographers, former reporters and film makers — produces some of Australia’s best, most consistent media content for corporates,” Ms Rocchi said. “It has taken many years to assemble productive working relationships with such a talented and professional group. We have also been careful to grow our business conservatively, so quality has remained excellent.”

Perth Media values include: staying true to the principles of integrity, authenticity and clarity; continuous improvement; and innovative thinking.

“We remain focused on improving media outcomes for our clients and enjoy the challenge of mixing social and traditional media as we embrace the communications of the future,” she said.

For the next four weeks (until November 15, 2018) the company is hosting some rarely-available media release writing sessions ($350) and media presentations, by appointment.

'Cate Rocchi at Perth Media has been engaged by Bryah Resources since prior to its listing on ASX in 2017. 

'We have found Cate to be a dynamic and enthusiastic advocate for our company across all media channels. Cate’s extensive network of media contacts has allowed us to receive a huge amount of mainstream media coverage in what is a very difficult and crowded marketplace. This would not have been possible had we not had her promoting our story.  She has also been very helpful in getting management trained and well prepared for live media interviews. We are delighted that we have Perth Media managing our Public Relations.'

Bryah Resources Tests High-Grade Manganese

Mn2 copy.jpg

JUNIOR EXPLORER Bryah Resources which has more than 900sqkm of highly prospective ground in the Bryah Basin and Gabanintha in Western Australia has announced samples have tested up to 49.5% manganese (Mn).

Bryah Resources managing director Neil Marston said: “This result is extremely encouraging because it adds another string to the bow of our promising junior explorer. Not only does the company have favorable copper and gold targets, the high-grade presence of the emerging battery metal, manganese, has also been confirmed.

We knew there were significant manganese anomalies, but our recent work has verified very high grades.

“The global outlook for manganese is extremely good, there is a shortage of supply and increased demand which is driving up manganese ore prices, up 50% in the last 6 months.

“Now the company’s planned exploration program for 2018, subject to necessary approvals, will also feature manganese targets.”

Manganese is used in steel production and as a battery component, notably in electric vehicles.

Bryah Resources’ 718sqkm Bryah Basin Project is about 100-150km north of Meekatharra. The Bryah Basin is home to two significant copper-gold discoveries the historic Horseshoe Lights mine (closed in 1994) and Sandfire’s DeGrussa mine (discovered in 2009).

PING's Inspire: 2nd Innovative Farm Summit for WA Farm Businesswomen March 27-28, 2018

‘Inspiring Farmers to Lead Profitable Businesses’

Partners in Grain WA (PinG WA) expects more than 200 businesswomen from Western Australia’s Wheatbelt to attend its second INSPIRE Summit at the Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle from March 27-28.

PinG WA Chair Bronwyn Fox, who lives in Dandaragan, said: “I am delighted to announce the second PinG WA INSPIRE Summit is nearly sold out. This year more than 200 leading rural businesswomen from all over Western Australia will come together again in Perth to learn and improve their business skills and network with other successful agribusiness owners.”

Mrs Fox said the PinG WA Summit and its many workshops held in WA’s regions, in the past few years, focused on learning successful farm business skills. “Farm business skills are not just about increasing production,” she said. “Production is key, but managing costs and markets are also imperative.”

“Good leadership is also important, and that is about empowering the people around you and understanding a team approach is essential to a successful farm business.”

Women attending the conference will travel from across and beyond the traditional Wheatbelt areas – as far as Gascoyne River in the north across to Southern Cross and the Esperance region. There are also women from varied enterprises as well as just grain farmers. In the past Bronwyn’s Dandaragan farm has grown canola, wheat and barley and now grows lupins for sheep flocks but specialises in potatoes, reflecting the growing diversity of WA’s agribusiness sector and the fact that the conference program will be attractive to farming businesses generally, not solely grain growers.

The two-day summit is aimed at women who already know the fundamentals of operating a farm business but are keen to learn more. Differentiating it from other conferences, and ensuring the focus remains true to its objectives, INSPIRE is only open to farmers, sponsors and speakers. The event is nearly fully booked with less than 10 spots remaining.

Speakers include: Matina Jewell (sponsored by Plum Grove) lessons of leadership and resilience; Nadine Campion (sponsored by the RRR Network) on 10 Seconds of Courage; Dr Cheryl Kalisch Gordon (Rabobank Senior Grains & Oilseeds Expert); Esther Jones (Nailing It: presenting well and articulating your message); and Dr Joyce Chong (The Skill Collective) on wellbeing. There will also be informative sessions on managing risks and a host of growers sharing skills and experiences within the panel and concurrent sessions.

INSPIRE Coordinator Erin Green, who is also a grain grower in Yuna (north-east of Geraldton), and past PinG WA Coordinator said: “As a not-for-profit, the opportunities PinG WA provides are otherwise unavailable or inaccessible to farmers. Over the five years I’ve been involved, PinG has delivered approximately 100 training events across WA to about 1400 growers. Although this event is aimed at women, more than 30% of PinG participants overall have been men. After PinG WA events were held, 99% of participants recommended the training to other growers.”

The event’s official partners are Rabobank and Plum Grove, while sponsors are RSM, Planfarm, HopgoodGanim Lawyers, Grain Industry Association of Western Australia and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development. Project funding has been secured with the Grains Research and Development Corporation, the RRR Network and the Department of Communities’ Grants for Women.

Rabobank regional manager for Western Australia Crawford Taylor said Rabobank was delighted to again be supporting the INSPIRE Summit. “The first summit was such a success, showcasing the crucial role women play in their business, community and family,” Mr Taylor said. “The 2018 Summit will build on that positive momentum, providing women with the opportunity to further develop their leadership and management skills. And this includes understanding global consumer trends and how grain growers can position their business to stay ahead of the game, with the bank’s grains analyst Cheryl Kalisch Gordon to set the scene by delivering the first presentation of the summit.”

Rikki Foss, Marketing Manager at Plum Grove, said the best investment within this industry was with its people and its community. “INSPIRE Summit provides many opportunities to enhance women’s skills and passion for their businesses and communities,” she said. “A few years ago Plum Grove had the opportunity to meet Matina Jewell and since then we have wanted to bring her back to Western Australia. The INSPIRE Summit has given us the opportunity to introduce you to a remarkable woman who has faced many challenges on and beyond the battle field. Matina truly represents the word ‘resilient’ and we look forward to you hearing her story.”

Ryan White, Senior Associate within HopgoodGanim Lawyers’ Agribusiness team is speaking at the event. He said: “When working with our agribusiness clients, we are constantly impressed by the contribution farming women make to their businesses, families and the communities they live in. But at the same time, we also recognise how important it is farming women get the opportunity to connect with their peers and share knowledge. The opportunity to be involved with and support a conference focused entirely on the professional and personal development of farming women was something we grasped with both hands. We are proud to be a part of a forum that celebrates farming women and supports them in learning new skills, making new connections and planting the seeds for growth and development in their businesses.”

Cameron Weeks, Farm Management Consultant at Planfarm, said: “Women are so often underestimated with regards to the role they play in farm businesses so any forum that brings them together as businesswomen is not to be missed. We welcome the chance to be involved in the summit and hope that we can help inspire the women attending to sustain or further develop their key business roles. The forum will feature leading women in WA agriculture in attendance and, as business advisers, we are looking forward to the event a great deal.”

“RSM have chosen to be a part of INSPIRE again in 2018 following their involvement in the successful INSPIRE 2016,” said Jo Gilbert, director of RSM Australia Pty Ltd. “RSM was established in Western Australia over 95 years ago and in that time we have seen the traditional roles of women in farming businesses change substantially. Women in today’s farming businesses embrace technology and realise the power of connectivity – both with their peers and their advisors. Through our large network of 30 offices across Australia we aim to keep up with the changes as they occur in business and use this knowledge to help our clients confront their challenges head on.”

Wheat production occurs across the WA Wheatbelt on 4000, mostly, family-run farms ranging in size from 1000 to 15,000 hectares. WA generates 8-10 million tonnes of wheat per annum which is 50% of Australia’s total annual wheat production.
