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've used Cath's services multiple times over the years and would highly recommend her for strategic and corporate communications. Cath is a talented, thoughtful writer who, throughout her work, deftly incorporates key messages, highlights achievements and promotes 'the company line'. Always strategic in her thinking and never dull (in her writing or persona), Cath is a treasure who brings fresh thinking and new approaches to corporate communications.
