Developing communication strategies that deliver results has been at the core of my work for than three decades. From new services and policies to major projects and advocacy campaigns, I’ve devised strategies on a myriad of topics, including roads and transport, infrastructure, advocacy, children, family, youth and aged services, community safety, environment and growth council interests, to name a few.
The high quality of my strategies is reflected in my comprehensive methodology, ability to work collaboratively with clients to understand and achieve their goals and outcomes, application of best practice thinking and methodologies, extensive experience in strategic communications and issues management in shaping narrative and key messages, and development of cost-effective solutions.

Ros Weadman was a breath of fresh air. She listens. She gets it…Everything just works. She is professional, dedicated and timely. And she really knows her craft. Basically, I can’t recommend her more highly.

The Melbourne Seafood Centre first engaged Ros of MPRMG in 2011. At the time, we required a company with specialist skills to help us liaise with the state government on a significant but delicate matter. Ros came in, assessed our situation and advised us on the best way to move forward. She understood our business, what we wanted to achieve and we got the best results. Since then we have used her a number of times and each time the service has been excellent with positive outcomes.

Ros’s signature approach made us all think laterally and deeply, identifying missed marketing opportunities, and clearly defined novel approaches to take advantage of those avenues. I’d recommend this workshop to every micro to medium business owner who’s frustrated with their marketing results and wants to have clear plan of action.

It was once again an absolute pleasure to take part in a training with Ros. Her energy and passion for communications and engagement is infectious and she really helped us as a team articulate our purpose. The groundwork that we have done here is going to be enormously beneficial in creating a Communications Team Strategy moving forward.

Whether you’re a private enterprise or public sector organisation, building a credible and trusted brand with a great reputation has never been more important. People want to work for brands aligned with their values, customers want to buy from brands focussed on the bigger picture, and investors want to support brands of integrity.
I specialise in helping professional service providers to think bigger and position themselves as a purpose-driven brand that understands how the ripple effect of their work creates a better world. From articulating what you stand for with a compelling vision and mission, to crafting a signature value proposition and inspiring brand story, together we transform your communications from dull and detached to engaging and energised. It’s both powerful and empowering work.
Tudor Insurance Australia needed to redefine our core vision, mission and values as part of a rebrand project so we contacted Ros Weadman to assist us with this and we are so glad we did. Ros takes the passion and vision you have for your business, draws out the ideas you didn’t realise you had and articulates these perfectly into a document that is usable and relevant to your business to define your brand, vision, mission and values to your clients and staff. Ros is a true professional in what she does. What she promises she delivers, with interest! I have no hesitation in offering my strongest recommendation for Ros to anyone wanting to develop these key pillars for their business.
Cameron McKerchar, Managing Director, Tudor Insurance Australia
The message of my keynote presentation on ‘How to build a credible and trusted brand and enhance your reputation’ is relevant to CEOS, executives, managers, team leaders and professional service consultants, advisors, thought leaders and trainers.
I have a strong belief that brands with a compelling vision and purpose have the power to move humanity forward by achieving a positive difference in their local communities, towns, nation or the world, beyond that which they deliver for their customer. I want to see a world where more business owners and public sector executives are empowered to think bigger picture and stand for something beyond their product/service.
My presentations are engaging, educative and inspiring. Attendees walk away with new insights they can apply immediately.
