Event description

Description

Inspiring small & medium-sized businesses in the built environment, art and design with the importance of marketing & communications.

In collaboration with Australian Institute of Architects (Queensland Chapter) and UAP, Be Extraordinary talk series is simple, unpretentious, inspiring, engaging and free! Thirty minutes of networking and sixty minutes of casual informative conversation with two extraordinary speakers. It will be an afternoon of wine and inspiring discussions on a wide variety of topics relating to marketing, communications and life!

For September 13 (4pm - 5:30pm), the talk series will be about SOCIAL & DIGITAL with Katie Walmsley, Co-Founder and COO of BenchOn and Kath Rose, Director of Kath Rose and Associates.

Let’s face it, we should have a pretty good understanding of social media, digital, PR and how it works, right? But most of us are still struggling and missing out the incredible benefits of this key marketing activity.

In the 21st century, social & digital should be present in any marketing strategy. In the past companies think about this as having a website, posting on Facebook and Twitter, but there is more than that! We will talk about common goals for social & digital, producing quality content, creating quality conversations, what is the process and how to start and be great at this important marketing activity.

Kath Rose, Owner and Director, Kath Rose and Associates

Kath Rose celebrates 20 years at the helm of her PR and marketing agency Kath Rose & Associates in 2018, and some 30 years in the game. During this time she has worked with some of the biggest brand names in the wold, and some of the city and state’s leading events and experiences.

Kath and her team have worked and continue to work with leading companies across a range of industries such as Cirque Du Soliel, Queensland Theatre, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Hit105 and Triple M Brisbane, Southbank Parklands, Paniyrii Greek Festival, Warner Bros., Warner Village Theme Parks, Brisbane Marketing, Tourism & Events Queensland, Brisbane Marketing, and Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. They are one of the most sought after public relations teams in Queensland.

It was our intention to invite marketers outside the built environment as this talk series is about inspiration and empowerment. We don't want to preach but be more as a peer trying to help one another solve your business' marketing and communication challenges.
