Our Difference

Established in 2007, The Ideas Suite is a boutique PR agency in Sydney’s east, headed by former journalist and editor Julia Nekich. Julia’s passion for, and understanding of, business has helped The Ideas Suite translate business problems into specific public relations briefs and strategies which help to solve those problems.

We seek an in-depth understanding of our clients’ businesses early on, and are driven to improve their reputation, awareness of their brand benefits, relationships with stakeholders and, ultimately, their bottom line.

We offer a very structured PR methodology that we have tested and refined over 10 years, and which our clients have come to rely on. This includes tailored asset briefs, research development, a unique process for media story development, detailed PR plans, media pitching strategies, daily reporting, multiple media and social media monitoring points, and ideas generation.

The Ideas Suite has delivered strong PR results for digital disruptor brands, global internet giants, finance, property and real estate brands, health & wellness providers, FMCG brands and travel brands.

We prefer to work with a small portfolio of clients and only take on projects when we know we will achieve outstanding results.

Benefits of Working with Us

  • EXPERIENCE ACROSS MULTIPLE SECTORS: We work across many different industries, enabling us to think laterally and leverage workable ideas generated from one sector into another.
  • IMMEDIATE RESULTS: We achieve results from month one. We normally require only 7-10 days to set up and plan a program – and will secure results quickly even when extended planning is required.
