Annette’s career to date has certainly involved plenty of hard work, but there’s been lots of fun along the way; from test driving CLKs on Silverstone Raceway, commandeering the Wimbledon train station for Nike and generating a lot of interest having a real person mountain climbing a billboard in central London.
Her international and national experience in senior client management roles in advertising saw her managing many high-profile accounts including Nike, Mercedes-Benz, Levis, Playboy TV, Queensland Rail, Suncorp, Port of Brisbane and Origin Energy.
Annette has worked with clients to create effective marketing and communications solutions for more than 20 years. She has experience across many mediums including printed marketing collateral, TV, radio and press campaigns, website development, speech writing and presentations, direct mail, billboards and outdoor campaigns, invitations, award applications, event management and conference organisation.
She is also a seasoned manager, having spent over 5 years managing the Marketing, Communications and Customer Service strategies for a large organisation of 1800 employees.
She is a warm and generous person who builds relationships easily and is genuinely interested in developing a clear understanding of needs and rolling out, what we here at Bold! Marketing Communication call, creatively practical marketing solutions.
Customer service is central to Annette’s work ethic. In fact, you might say it’s fundamental to her M.O.
In 2011, her customer service strategy for a large organisation won the top customer service award for both the Queensland and National Chapters of the Customer Service Institute of Australia. In 2012, her personal commitment was recognised by the Queensland Customer Service Institute, when Annette was named Queensland Customer Service Executive of the Year.
Annette holds a Bachelor of Business, Graduate Certificate of Management, A Diploma of Business (Customer Service) and is a Fellow of the Customer Service Institute of Australia.
With a love of exploring and adventure, Annette has travelled extensively throughout Europe, the UK and South America. Her favourite place to visit by far is The Philippines where she is a regular visitor. After living in London, Melbourne and Brisbane, Annette moved to the Sunshine Coast upon the arrival of her first of two sons, to enjoy the beautiful location and relaxed outdoor lifestyle.
Annette enjoys working with the creative and resourceful team at Bold Corporate Communication, who are dedicated to helping clients establish effective marketing and communications.
