Experts with proven track records in communications, journalism, public relations, digital, marketing and branding, it is our team which sets us apart. We’re all committed to one thing – helping our clients grow.
Jodie van Deventer – Managing Director
A journalist and branding and strategic communications expert with experience at the senior executive and Board level, Jodie is backed by 25 years’ international and local experience. She’s passionate about communication and helping organisations to grow.
She advises clients on a range of issues and enjoys excellent working relationships with national media, community leaders, the business community and government. Her skills range from branding, PR and marketing through to strategy development, government relations and media management.
She is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and a multiple winner at the Public Relations Institute of Australia awards.
When she’s not helping clients, you can find her riding her bike through the Adelaide Hills, reading a book or travelling to far-flung corners of the globe.
Grant Cameron – Principal Brand Storyteller
Grant Cameron is one of Australia’s most experienced storytellers and media professionals. His career has spanned four decades and all major mediums: newspapers, television, radio and advertising.
Grant has been a newsreader and weather presenter on metropolitan TV, spent almost 20 years on commercial breakfast and recently spent five years presenting the late-afternoon ‘Drive’ shift on ABC Local Radio.
He lives for the “ah-ha” moments: the times in our workshops when clients suddenly realise how powerful their brand story is and how they can use this to achieve an amazing competitive advantage.
Away from this particular passion, Grant is a keen organic gardener, a lover of all things aquatic, and is yet to bake the perfect loaf of sourdough bread.
Mel van Deventer – Account Director
In a varied career, Mel has held executive positions with some of Australia’s leading media companies in roles as varied as executive management, sales, publicity and marketing.
She’s worked with Network Ten, Austereo and dmgAustralia as well as on some of Australia’s largest events such as the Melbourne International Arts Festival, Adelaide Festival of Arts and WOMADelaide.
When she’s not helping clients stand out for all the right reasons, you can find her kickboxing, travelling the globe and hanging out with her chocolate Labrador (and part-time office dog) Barney.
Jo West – Graphic Designer
Our partner Jo West from West Creative brings with her 30 years’ experience working within the design industry, creating everything from movie titles for Hollywood Director Scott Hicks through to cycling lycra for MAMILs (middle aged men in lycra). She has been a judge for Graphic Design for the Design Institute of Australia (SA Division) and won numerous awards for her work.
Her hobbies include travel, photography, painting, yoga and keeping fit. She is the proud mother of two girls, one chocolate labrador and two cats.
