Cemoh Profile


I have more than 20 years of experience in communications, marketing, event management, stakeholder consultation, media relations, crisis management, writing, editing, website management, research, and policy.

I work across a broad range of industries, including tourism, education, banking and finance, civil construction and infrastructure, aged care, disability, small business, health and technology.

 Just some of the clients I've worked for include:

  • State government departments and Minister’s offices (NSW Electoral Commission, Motor Accidents Authority, Department of Ageing Disability and Home Care, Office for Ageing, Tourism Australia, Destination NSW).
  • Not-for-profit organisations (Australian Banking Association, Feros Care, Life Education QLD, Insurance Council of Australia, the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal {FRRR}).  
  • Private enterprise & corporations (Citibank, JAWS communications).

I understand how important it is to communicate effectively, and how vital it is to have an omnichannel approach with consistent messaging.  

I have personal drive and integrity, and I have sound judgement in dealing with complex and sensitive issues. 

 When you work with me, I promise to offer you honest and authentic advice. I’m not afraid of hard work or getting my hands dirty.

I look forward to working with you on your next project.
