Parker Communications' Philosophy
At Parker Communications, we’re passionate about giving a voice to causes we care about, messages that matter and brands we believe in.
We work closely with clients to develop and deliver marketing, public relations and promotional campaigns that engage your audience, build your brand and share your story.
If you’re in the business of helping people or the planet – then we want to help you!
Hi! I’m Michelle, founder of Parker & Co Communications. I started this community-minded consultancy back in 2010 to provide powerful public relations and communications solutions for organisations on the Mid North Coast of NSW and beyond.
I love working closely with the people behind the brands, making magic happen by combining strategic thinking with creative ideas to achieve our shared goals.
I’ve clocked up more than 17 years’ experience as a public relations and communications consultant, working with hundreds of clients in Sydney and on the coast.
I honed my skills in community engagement, media relations, issues management, government relations and events during my time as Manager of a PR agency in Sydney, working with some of Australia’s most well-known brands, and more recently, working with small businesses, not-for-profits and government agencies from my base in Port Macquarie.
Contributing to my community is what makes me tick. Some of my favourite contributions have been:
– writing a monthly column in Focus magazine, “A Day in the Life”, featuring local community members for five years
– teaching Public Relations, Communications, Advertising and Events subjects at Charles Sturt University’s Port Macquarie Campus
– being the inaugural Communications Coordinator for the Hastings Business Women’s Network
– a founding member of the International Women’s Day Hastings Heroines Awards Committee
– sitting on the Board of Coastal Warriors and Girl Space
Bachelor of Public Relations and Communications, Charles Sturt University, 2002
