“You can’t only be engrossed in your work or business or else you become a really flat person without any creative ideas.” - Monica Rosenfeld
Monica Rosenfeld started her career in journalism, working as a producer at Channel 9’s A Current Affair (ACA). Monica learnt how NOT to do PR during her time at ACA, because she felt that the countless brands and PR people who approached her did not understand what she needed – a newsworthy hook! She started up her own boutique agency, WordStorm PR, to give the media what she knew first-hand they were thirsty for.
Sixteen years on, the WordStorm PR team has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurial-driven businesses in the consumer and lifestyle space and knows how to use PR to increase clients’ bottom line.
