“EVT is a complicated incentive marketing company with complex client offerings. The Incentive Marketing industry was relatively unreported and had no profile in Australia. Furthermore, we had some terrible experiences with PR agencies who didn't understand our clients and aimed, with little success, for coverage in our own industry publications which are only read by competitors.
We wanted B2B corporate media attention that our top level clients respected. HPR worked with us for over five years to get us to where we wanted to be - that is an opinion leader and expert in the incentive marketing industry. Now, as MD, I am regularly invited to speak, often quoted and interviewed by prestigious media business media. This has led to significant new business which we can track straight back to our PR efforts.
Elizabeth has an in-depth affinity with corporates and influential media contacts and was consistently able to develop the right stories and angles to ensure we received regular credible and pertinent media. She also took us through media training to ensure we maximised our media opportunities which made a tangible difference to how we presented our firm to clients.
I highly recommend Elizabeth, for her structured strategic approach, to any business looking to invest in PR. Not only will you receive a return on your investment but also a trusted confidant who is honest, hardworking and a joy to be in business with.

"A calm and controlled counsel whom I could contact anytime after hours and on weekends during our issues management project, who was always ahead of the situation and solved the problem before I had even thought of it. Not only did we negate the issue but the media understood and empathised with us thanks to our on-the-front-foot strategy. The advice to our staff and executives was invaluable."

"We started our PR campaign as the proverbial nobodies. Heusler's developed unique and tangible points of difference, we received outstanding coverage and trebled turnover by the end of the first year."

"Over the past three and a half years, Elizabeth Heusler of HPR has worked closely with me in my role as the Head of Corporate Real Estate for AMP. During that time she has been instrumental in assisting us in raising the profile of the AMP Corporate Real Estate team, Workspace, through the publication of numerous topical articles on AMP projects such as the refurbishment of our Head Office in Sydney. We had some complex issues which were diffused with a minimum of fuss
I have been continuously impressed by Elizabeth's professionalism, the quality of her work and her insight and in-depth knowledge of media. Having recently moved on from AMP I look forward to continuing our successful relationship into the future".

"The campaign Heusler's developed for our IT start-up delivered. Too much so! We had to adapt our business to the unexpected growth spurt. Heusler's professionalism, quick up-take and ability to become experts in a complex technology field was impressive. Can't get them to side with the All Blacks – my only regret."
Director – Biometric Systems
"We initially contracted Heusler PR to bring their writing skills to the development of our website: what we got was so much more in terms of providing creativity and assisting us with our message by developing a real point of difference. It made the website development process enjoyable and economical."
