For this reason I extended the opportunity to engage Joanne to host a locally produced TV series for CTV Perth Inc, and later broadcast on Perth’s not for profit Community TV station, West TV Ltd, channel 44 (WTV44). WTV broadcasts to the Perth area available to 1.7 million people. During Joannes time with us at WTV44, we produced a 30 minute program of Perth City Talks covering the City of Perth Pride Fair Day 2010, a festival event celebrating Pride and equality within our Community. Joanne was insightful and tactful in her approach whilst talking to representatives of dozens of very important Community groups and business owners, all of whom support Pride and equality within our Community. Topics of discussion were approached professionally and triggered engaging, thought provoking conversation that conveyed extremely important and informative messages to the WTV audience. I have no hesitation in recommending Joanne for any future endeavours.

“Speaking as a Team Leader, Joanne is brilliant! Joanne was responsible for developing and managing an information campaign for the Western Australian Department of Treasury and Finance. The campaign was pivotal in alerting suppliers to government departments of new billing arrangements. Joanne conceived GOSSIP (Government Offices Shared Services Improving Payments), planned, deployed and managed the two year campaign very successfully. This was no small task! Joanne confidently consulted with key stakeholders, including internal and external clients (government agencies, private sector suppliers and industry bodies, and the media.) The resulting campaign included printed and online literature, a website, satelite TV presentations, on-site and regional presentations as well as hosting one-to-one meetings with clients and suppliers. Joanne was responsible for the entire project, including reporting and feedback. The GOSSIP campaign was highly successful, turning a potential high-risk project for State Government, into a manageable and enjoyable outcome. Joanne brought so many benefits to my small team. Her dynamism and attention to detail were inspirational and very rewarding. Time and again she showed strong initiative and a willingness to tackle new challenges. From the first day – when I asked her to address a large team meeting, she delivered a professional and confident message to a challenging audience. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Joanne, and was pleased when she gained a promotional opportunity, though she was sadly missed by the whole team. I’d be very pleased to provide further references for Joanne where required.”

“I’d happily recommend Jo as someone who is both passionate about communications and committed to the outcome (not just the process). I was really impressed with Jo’s ability to hit the ground running in what was a fairly intimidating role. That was two years ago and I know she’ll have improved enormously since as that is the kind of person she is.”

— Ben Spitteler, was Joanne’s client
