Our founder, Ros Weadman, is a government communication and reputation specialist with 16 years’ communications management experience. Prior to establishing Melbourne PR & Marketing in 2011, Ros managed the communications department at the City of Casey for 11 years and at the City of Greater Dandenong for five years. During this time, she developed and implemented strategic communication, engagement and advocacy plans on a diverse range of projects, issues and policy matters. She also established Casey’s Community Engagement Policy and Framework, and introduced its online engagement platform and online advocacy presence.
Ros has exceptional experience in media and issues management. She has provided high-level communications and media advice and training to CEOs, mayors and councillors, and has led crisis communications teams responding to some of Australia’s highest profile incidents and issues, including the Cranbourne Methane Gas crisis (2008), Black Saturday fires (2009), Springvale Salmonella outbreak (1997) and Victorian Gas crisis (1998).
