“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."
MD – Imupro Health Services
"You're a superhero. There's no need for measurements and matrixes every time you get us a story there is a sharp spike in our call centre – we know its working."
National co-ordinator – Smokenders
"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."
Managing Director – Bevco
"They were the best and most professionally run events the school has ever held – especially the luncheon organised with the COEs. Your contacts are impressive. From the Archbishop to footy stars – is there anyone you don't know?"
The Old Barker Association, Hornsby
"I have come to appreciate the benefits of what public relations can do to create awareness of my business and increase the bottom line. I've tried several other PR consultancies and appreciate Elizabeth's hands-on approach and reliability, and her sense of humour."
Owner – Tarasin Jewels
"Thank you for making the PR jungle seem like a garden."
Marketing Manager – The Facial Rejuvenation Clinic
"A great pleasure to work with a professional, focused group that embraces the client's objectives and knows how to run with them. What's more, Heusler's really enjoy what they do and that comes through."
