Professional communication group formed
A NEW group of Whitsunday-based professional communicators and creatives is starting to gain momentum, with more than 20 people registered so far.
The Creative MOB (Marketing Our Business) is a collaborative initiative including graphic designers, website developers, writers, marketing specialists, photographers, signwriters and PR professionals, who meet to share ideas and expertise and together, provide a complete range of services for clients.
It is hoped the group - which is open to freelancers working in the creative and communications industries - will be better able to attract the interest of local clients and demonstrate that the Whitsunday region has the depth of experience required for bigger jobs.
The initiative was born out of a conversation between Telltale Communication's director Corrie Gardner, and Write Away Whitsundays' director Deborah Friend, both of whom work as solo subcontractors but sometimes require the expertise of other creative and communications professionals to deliver bigger jobs.
Ms Gardner said there was a great spread of expertise across the group “and everyone seems to be on the same page when it comes to what they want to get out of it”.
“There is no formal membership, just a desire to collaborate and network with likeminded professionals who aspire to delivering the best job they can,” she said.
"We have a wealth of talent, knowledge and experience in this town and by working together, we can bring that to clients to their benefit.”
The group meets once every two months, with the next meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 24, 3.30-4.30pm.
