Since our public relations agency was established in 2007, we have delivered an outstanding track record of results for brands and organisations in the health, travel, e-commerce, property, finance and consumer-product sectors.
Our high-volume media results are a testament to our effective media strategies and structured PR methodology that we have tested and refined over a decade, and which our clients have come to rely on.
We ensure our clients only work with the ‘best in class’ – PR consultants who are either ex-journalists, creative writers, experienced event and product managers, ex agency talent, or first-class honours graduates. On top of that, we are a dedicated team with a great attitude and passionate about maximising results month on month.
The Ideas Suite ensures a minimum of three PR consultants are assigned to each account, and these consultants work on each account daily: an Account Director for strategy; an Account Manager for implementation and as the day-to-day client liaison; and an Account Executive for research, reporting and monitoring.
Our talented PR consultants meet with journalists and producers to develop strong relationships with the media. This is one of the reasons we have made a name for ourselves as one of the top PR agencies in Sydney for media coverage.
Julia Nekich is the agency Principal as well as the Director on each account, where she develops, oversees and hones strategies. Julia has more than 20 years’ experience in journalism, PR and advertising, and has written for multiple publications, including The Sydney Morning Herald and The Sunday Telegraph.
We are the leading PR agency in Sydney for press office results. The Ideas Suite ran a two-month campaign for ProductReview.com.au to announce the winners of its 2017 awards. The goal of the PR campaign was to maximise media coverage for the brand.

The Ideas Suite is a PR agency in Sydney that specialises in implementing an always-on press office for brands and organisations in a range of industries. Every effective press office, however, requires a strong media strategy that will maximise coverage month to month. Our hard-working media content and media outreach strategies achieve high-quality, high-volume media coverage fast and continuously over a 12-month period.
Led by Julia Nekich, a former journalist, corporate writer, copywriter and editor, our agency is a team of talented and keen storytellers – PR consultants with a knack for developing news angles that connect brands and organisations to daily news agendas. We specialise in news media coverage: newspapers, online news sites, AM and FM radio, morning TV and TV news.
At the same time, we always remember that are a full-service public relations agency and, where needed, run multi-level strategies that incorporate social influencer engagement, social media management, industry partnerships, celebrity partnerships, promotions, issues and crisis management, events and activations, and copywriting for the full range of company marketing collateral.
As a hardworking Sydney PR agency in a fast-changing media environment, we want to ensure that our PR programs get all the TLC they need to attract audience numbers in the media. This is why The Ideas Suite prefers to work with small number of clients at any one time. We choose brands or organisations that we are passionate about, and we only take on projects when we know we will achieve outstanding results. We work across many different industries and have experience across multiple sectors.
Unlike many other Sydney public relations companies, we don’t lock our clients into fixed-term contracts. Additionally, we are transparent about every part of our PR program and how we achieve results. We are confident in our abilities as a public relations agency and we believe that this makes us responsible for our work and accountable for the results we achieve for each client.
Our PR programs begin with strategy and content development, culminating in a 12-month PR plan that we implement autonomously. We are also strong believers in brand positioning and messaging for the media, and we stick to the messages that we develop for brands from month one.
As a PR agency in Sydney, The Ideas Suite has a geographical advantage over Melbourne and Brisbane agencies, in that we are located near media headquarters in Pyrmont, Surry Hills and Sydney CBD. Working near the media helps us develop and foster relationships with them, as we meet with them face to face to ‘sell’ in stories. We have extensive media contacts and strong relationships across most media categories, but particularly news, finance, property and business. For this reason, The Ideas Suite is recognised as one of the leading PR companies in Sydney for media relations.
The Ideas Suite worked with the world’s leading hotel price comparison platform, HotelsCombined, to provide an always on press office function. HotelsCombined is known for finding Aussies the best hotel price by comparing all the top travel accommodation sites.

We secured coverage for HotelsCombined in key media outlets including the Today show, News Corp’s Escape, Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun and The Huffington Post.
