our team

The Elevate team is a group of savvy, well-connected, award-winning PR operatives with a proven track record for providing clients with top-tier results.

We are foodies, we are fashionistas, we are gym nuts, we are mums, we are singers, we are travellers, we are night owls, we are early risers and, most importantly, we are your core demographic.

We don’t believe in spin and and we’re definitely not about fluff. We believe in storytelling. And if you have a good story, we make sure we tell the right people.

Elevate focuses on clients we are passionate about and who resonate with us. Our team embodies the brands we represent. And who better to tell the story of your brand than someone who lives it?

From day one we dig in and get down to business to get to know our clients and their customers. We serve as an extension of our clients’ internal marketing teams.

Elevate’s targeted, thoughtful approach to PR has earned us a reputation as a resource for media across a broad spectrum of top tier media outlets nationwide.

Our experienced team is well versed in representing businesses in sectors ranging from franchising, property and not-for-profits to food and beverage, education and training, and health and beauty, and many more.

Through close partnerships and a 'hands on' approach, we quickly identify with your business. We are completely transparent in our relationships and believe in honesty and integrity at all times.

Your business is our business. There is no “one size fits all” in communications, so we make a point of identifying what is important to you and finding solutions to meet your individual needs, budget and circumstances.

We do this by keeping on top of new and emerging trends - combining good old business principles with creative, sometimes left-field approaches to position your brand firmly in the consciousness of your target audiences.

And we even manage to have a little fun along the way ….
