Mary-Anne joined forces with ABC Radio National almost twenty eight years ago to stage and broadcast themed events. Mary Anne is a media strategy and event specialist.  Her clients engage her to put together one hour radio and TV programs, often for their annual conferences.  The events influence agendas and have a longer life than the event itself.

Mary Anne moved to New Zealand in 2019 and since the pandemic has perfected a new online system for her clients to work with radio in Australia and New Zealand.  The online system allows panelists and radio presenters to engage with their online audience through Q&A and receive national media exposure. When the boarders open Mary Anne will once again spend time travelling between the two countries.

Event supporters receive unparalleled promotion and awareness for their business products, awards or areas of expertise.
