Christine Powis has joined Sydney Community Services as Marketing Coordinator. She is a communications all-rounder, experienced in creating publicity and writing and editing a range of marketing communications copy, publications and articles for not-for-profits, businesses, government and for traditional publishers.
Christine’s recent work includes a long-term consultancy for Feehan Communications, a niche PR agency specialising in ‘for-a-purpose’ – that is, not-for-profit clients such as medical research and disability support organisations and local and other government departments.
“I love working with community-oriented organisations which make a difference to people’s lives and have such positive stories to tell,” says Christine.
Although she’s covered many topics for a variety of audiences, she most enjoys working on communications for educational, community service or research organisations – especially those with world-beating medical-science news – such as the Children’s Medical Research Institute and its popular Jeans for Genes campaign, Multiple Sclerosis Research Australia and MS Societies, and Autism Spectrum Australia. She doesn’t mind rolling up her sleeves to do whatever is needed and has been known to shout herself hoarse at the general public when collecting donations on fundraising days.
