Our founding member of Fresh and resident PR gun is the ultimate professional and has earned a reputation for delivering outstanding results for her clients each and every time.
Bringing international in-house communications experience from the likes of Volkswagen in South Africa and Marks & Spencer in the UK, Maya has a keen understanding of how best to work with in-house teams to provide the support required, while always operating within corporate guidelines and respecting brand principles.
Having managed consultancies in the past she understands better than anyone how valuable it is to have an external perspective on industry trends and PR opportunities. This, combined with her extensive hands-on consultancy experience since establishing Fresh in 2004, has given her a valuable skillset equally transferable across metro and regional markets.
Her strategic approach has seen the award-winning consultancy grow from strength to strength, delivering marketing and PR campaigns for a diverse range of clients across a number of industries. Maya has become a valuable advisor to many long-term clients including Gymnastics Queensland, the Queensland Garden Expo, Double R Projects, McNab and charities such as Wishlist and St Vinnies.
Her extensive media network, understanding of the 24-hour news cycle and ability to deliver stories that are interesting, relevant, original and above all ‘fresh’. She loves a good spreadsheet when planning her own events to the nth degree, and doesn’t run away from the hard stuff like crisis and issues management – in fact she kind of loves it!
Maya is the Chair of the Sunshine Coast Major Events Board, which advises Sunshine Coast Council on attracting major events as a mechanism for economic growth in the region.
Maya is our chameleon ― she’s agile, thinks on her feet, quickly adapts to new environments and has 360-degree vision — a great skillset for a professional communicator.
