Emma Pearse

Creative PR & Brand Strategy with warmth and hustle

Emma is an energetic collaborator, passionate about helping people and brands navigate the wild worlds of media, communications and self promotion.

The media landscape can be bewildering and even seem hostile. And for many, self promotion is a dirty word(s). With over 20 years experience in Australian, US and international media, Emma is in her element as a PR and brand specialist, helping innovative and socially conscious brands clarify their story and become thought leaders and a part of the daily conversation. She is a natural writer and storyteller, and offers promotional and media strategy that starts dialogues, provokes thoughts and lasts well beyond the daily clickosphere. She mentors high profile creatives who are busy with their real work. She leads content campaigns for small and global businesses that audiences want to follow. She whips up innovative stunts and events. And she is an expert at massaging a PR pitch into all sorts of surprising angles for high value media wins. She works with entrepreneurial and creative clients in arts and entertainment, eco travel and tourism, technology and eCommerce, fashion and sustainable design, and social justice, health and wellness.

In her “other” life, Emma has published one non fiction book (self promo: Oprah mag liked it!) and published essays and articles for The New York Times, New York magazine, the Guardian, Elle, Vogue, Spirituality & Health... and more. She has launched her clients into mainstream and industry publications in Australia, the US, Germany and the UK.
