Hootville Communications for NFPs- Advertorial
Monday, 22nd November 2004 at 12:11 pm
Using its powers for good, not evil, Hootville Communications helps NFPs across Australia create the influence they deserve with politicians, the public, media, clients and stakeholders.
Hootville’s self-declared Mayor, Brett de Hoedt, has worked for media organisations including Truth, New Idea, Channel 7, ABC-TV, 3AK, The Sunday Age, The Melbourne Weekly and ABC Radio.
Senior Councillor Matt Clear joined Hootville after six years with Amnesty International where he was Manager of Campaign & Activism and Acting Director Campaigning.
Hootville generates media coverage and helps organisations to be more media savvy. They have built contacts, skills and knowledge. They also train media spokespeople – important in good times or bad – and turn members into advocates by the power of the pen and talkback radio.
Hootville does this with clients including Mental Illness Fellowship Australia, Fundraising Institute – Australia, Family Services Australia, Victorian Primary Principals Association as well as members of the environmental, disability, entertainment, law and hospitality sectors.
Talk about commitment to the NFP sector is cheap but Hootville actually delivers; charging NFP clients 33% less than corporate clients.
Another way Hootville supports the NFP sector as whole is through Hootville Fireside Chats at which NFP and private sector colleagues in communications, marketing and development meet to learn from each other and recognised experts.
The next chat looks at NFP-private partnerships with speakers from: Holden, Australian Conservation Foundation, The Body Shop, Kids Under Cover and the Cancer Council.
