Jane Speechley

Managing Director, Charismatic Communications

 

Established in 2007, Charismatic Communications is a Canberra-based public relations and media consultancy, owned and operated by me – Jane Speechley.

I’m a professional public relations practitioner with over 15 years’ experience, gained through a variety of roles across the government, non-profit and commercial sectors.

In that time, I’ve also worked as a freelance writer, event manager, radio producer and teacher.

How I work

I’ve established my public relations agency to return to the principle of customer service and the core purpose of public relations, which is helping you to communicate – whatever the environment in which you’re working.

I practice what I preach in my communication strategies! – I begin by considering what you need, then go about working out ways to deliver that for you. Learn more about my philosophy.

What’s in a name?

When I was trying to come up with a name for my public relations consultancy, I really liked the word ‘charismatic’; the sound of the word and the image it evoked. It just stuck with me.

After looking up the dictionary definition, I found out it meant: “1. able to lead and influence large numbers of people; 2. elicits a positive emotional response; 3. having a special quality of leadership that captures the popular imagination and inspires allegiance and devotion.”

I thought it was perfect for a public relations business!

It’s been my company name ever since and now, almost 10 years later, I’m as attached to it as ever! That dictionary definition is now a really important part of my branding as well.
