Our Expertise


The Way We Work

Clients love working with Ogilvy PR because we create teams based on the nature of the brief (not the other way round) and can draw from our team of over 100 specialists across all PR disciplines. In some instances a client’s brief will fit within just one of our specialist teams, in which case we will put them in touch with someone from that specialist brand to be their lead relationship manager.

In most cases a client will come to us for work that crosses PR disciplines so we create an ‘Ogilvy PR’ team that is just for them. We also have a Media Training and Story Telling team, an Issues and Crisis Unit, a Content Studio and a Strategic Planning team who support the needs of all our clients teams.

Specialist support practices

Media and Message Training

Ogilvy PR’s media and message development coaching courses cover the full spectrum of stakeholder engagement that a company and its executives can expect to face.  This includes meetings with shareholders, employees, industry peers, media (broadcast, print and digital) as well as senate inquiries. You’ll learn how to tell your story in the most compelling manner possible.

Ogilvy PR’s coaching courses are led by Media Director Sam North, former Managing Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald and Sun Herald.  Sam brings more than 30 years of experience across the fields of media and management.  He provides senior counsel on media engagement, crisis and issues management, and media coaching.

Strategic Planning

Persuasive storytelling is at the heart of what we offer clients. Our strategic planning tools enable us to intelligently understand the context of each brief; create brave content and creative that will engage; and spark meaningful conversations that change perceptions and behaviour.

What makes us different is that we have a team of Planning Specialists who deeply understand audience segments – from public affairs to consumers, businesses and employees. This means that the communication programs we create take a 360 view, not just a snapshot view.

For you it means our campaigns are founded on real insight – focused on audiences first and are creatively activated in ways that will get measurable results.

Our dedicated planning team has access to over 20 research resources and databases to ensure we have the very latest trends and data at our fingertips – which we turn into actionable insight.  

Through our planning team we offer a range of services from fully integrated brand communications planning, to communications strategy, creative planning and optimised channel planning.
