"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".

"Media training was a real eye opener. It should be compulsory for all medical practitioners."

"HPR are indefatigable. They identified a niche – small cap listed firms – and that became our position. We initially engaged HPR for one year as we only had a handful of clients. We soon identified that the PR strategy had a direct impact on our market presence and we worked together three years. HPR's contacts in the financial media are more than mere contacts they are trusted confidants."

"We conducted rigorous testing of our PR campaign. As we are a schedule four medicine, we aren't allowed to advertise or promote – thus we don't even have a website. Nor can we target our patients with direct mail or the like. It's clear that we can only attribute our impressive increase in recognition to our PR strategy which was quite complex as it covered surgeons, GPs and consumers."

“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.
Mercedes Truatwein - Joint Managing Director
"For a little company we certainly raised our profile in every media outlet across Australia. Our website and call centre hummed from morning until night – so much so that we had our competitors trying to discredit us.
Thank goodness for HPR's delicate and dedicated round-the-clock handling of our media issue. When our issue occured you were right onto it, even when you were on holidays overseas. Our company would not be what it is today if HPR hadn't been on the front foot."
