Wells Haslem Mayhew Strategic Public Affairs has a remarkable heritage, with our team combining decades of experience in public affairs, government relations, issues management, journalism, media training, digital media, social media, politics and foreign affairs. We are not just another PR company. We act quickly to add value to your project. Our team is made up of people from the highest levels of politics and journalism, including a former press secretary to John Howard, a former President of the Australian Senate, and The Australian Newspaper’s former High Court correspondent. We are committed to delivering an exceptional level of service and this experience combined with our outlook means we add value to everything we do. We combine this with our team’s social media skills to offer comprehensive communications services. Throughout their careers our team members have worked alongside clients from a broad range of industries with many services, including: • marketing of products and services; • educating and motivating public opinion; • managing issues and crises; • talking to governments; • fighting and winning campaigns; • building profiles and restoring images; • engendering and accelerating change; • facilitating mergers and resisting takeovers; • producing media and digital materials; • media training; and • staging events and promotions. Our history as a company dates back to the 1992 establishment of what would become one of Australia’s leading independent PR companies, Jackson Wells. 20 years later, John Wells, Benjamin Haslem, Alexandra Mayhew, Kerry Sibraa AO, Julie Sibraa, and Michael Baume AO joined forces to create Wells Haslem Strategic Public Affairs. We believe Wells Haslem Strategic Public Affairs has the right experience and outlook to deliver the right solutions and get the right outcomes for our clients.
