History in the mak­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S. CAHILL

THE of­fice of Ni­cole Moody’s new ven­ture Hunter Com­mu­ni­ca­tions has all the trim­mings of her history.

Desks and a board­room ta­ble are made from wood off her fam­ily’s 120year-old Don­ny­brook farm, and a paint­ing done by ele­phants at Perth Zoo, where Mrs Moody has been a board mem­ber for four years, hangs on the wall of the King Street of­fice.

“My cof­fee ta­ble is the door off the sheep yards,” she said.

Mrs Moody, of West Leed­erville, this month opened the doors of her bou­tique com­mu­ni­ca­tions and public re­la­tions agency with help from her hus­band An­drew and two sons.

“It’s a re­ally good time to be start­ing a new busi­ness…I know the eco­nomic cli­mate we’re in so it forces me to do it in a way that keeps costs down and keep rates down,” she said.

The Hunter Com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ag­ing di­rec­tor said she would tar­get cor­po­rate clients and had al­ready en­gaged Western Power, Perth Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre, Rac­ing and Wa­ger­ing WA, and TAB.

She said Hunter Com­mu­ni­ca­tions would also be tak­ing on pro bono clients to con­tinue her vol­un­teer roles on the Perth Zoo, Life­line WA and Perth Con­ven­tion Bureau boards.

The for­mer TV jour­nal­ist started her ca­reer as a 15-year-old school­girl writ­ing for the Bunbury Tele­graph and at 24 be­came the State’s youngest media ad­vi­sor when she worked for Monty House.

Mrs Moody of­fi­cially launched Hunter Com­mu­ni­ca­tions last Thurs­day.
