About me

Cath Newell 

I've been a professional communicator for all my working life.


Originally a trained and qualified journalist, I've worked in advertising, production, public relations and corporate affairs. Both in-house and, since 1999, as a successful freelance consultant.

I specialise as a writer. I write and edit speeches, media releases and editorials, case studies, websites, brochures, annual reports, newsletters, reports and documents, social media content and create communications strategies.

I am an official supplier of Writing, Editing and Communications Services to the Victorian State Government through its Marketing Services Register.

And because my professional network includes photographers, designers, production houses, printers and marketing specialists, I am equipped to project manage any communication assignment. With outstanding results, from start to finish.

I used Cath as a specialist comms advisor in my capacity as Head of External Affairs and Media at Medibank Private. She is highly proactive, knowledgeable about health matters, an excellent writer and stakeholder manager. Over the years I've given Cath substantial communications and writing projects elsewhere, most notably at the RACV and the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority. She is terrific!
