The Shell Issue 1
Welcome to the shell
Welcome to The Shell, the new newsletter and official publication of Wells Haslem Strategic Public Affairs. We have now been operating for six months.
Our new publication aims to bring you regular updates on issues, public affairs activity, trends in the industry, politics and insights into client work across our portfolio of activity.
The Shell represents the heritage underpinning our new brand and logo developed by Alexandra Mayhew. It brings a contemporary look and feel to the brand Wells Haslem.
We will publish the Shell bi-annually and update our clients and friends on all of our activity and interesting bits and pieces.
Wells Haslem Strategic Public Affairs has an interesting heritage.
Our team combines decades of experience in public affairs, government relations, issues management, journalism, politics, policy advice and foreign affairs.
The team is made up of John Wells, Benjamin Haslem, Alexandra Mayhew, The Hon. Kerry Sibraa AO, Julie Sibraa, Trevor Cook, and Michael Baume AO.
They were a key part of Jackson Wells – one of Australia’s most successful public relations outfits – for over 20 years.
Wells Haslem is not just another PR company. What we do is quickly add value to our clients’ projects; this is what we are renowned for.
At the centre of our firm is the desire to help clients communicate better and to resolve issues affecting their brand and corporate performance.
We believe it is important to get the planning and strategy around communication right. That is where we usually start: outline key objectives, identify key stakeholders and their issues, develop strategies to manage issues, identify a strategic approach to the project and then outlining a major program of activity to help ensure we achieve our objectives.
Sounds simple enough but often it isn’t. It takes a lot of thinking and clever footwork.
Our work covers all key disciplines of communication: strategy development, issues management, government relations, media relations, crisis management, digital media and FMCG promotion.
We have a long history in assisting companies with change communication. Helping management communicate more effectively with their employees, creating a more effective and efficient work place.
If you think we can help you, or you want to know more about our services, please ring Ben, Alexandra or me on +61 (0)2 9033 8667, or visit our website wellshaslem.com.au.
