Straight Talk Group’s veteran business man, Geoff Richmond, and leading South Australian business coach and marketing specialist, Lisa Ormenyessy, have been joined by PR and Communications Consultant, Charlie-Helen Robinson.
Communications, engagement and public relations is no longer just about the next media release and seminar, businesses are also using social media tactics to either supplement or add on to existing PR strategies. The most successful focus on creating active relationships, truly engaging to have a real conversation.
Straight Talk Group’s Financial Results Accountant, Geoff Richmond says, “Business owners don't come to us for sugar-coated pleasantries; they come to us for down to earth, practical, hands-on coaching and advice. We call ourselves Straight Talk in order to continually remind ourselves, our clients and our community, that straight-to-the-point, real and useful advice is invaluable, and is our reason for existing as a business.”
As a communications professional, Charlie is an experienced voice of reason in the crowd. She understands that media, and in particular social media, needs a well-articulated idea of why, what, when and how.
Charlie says “Lack of social media policies for both staff and client handling can seriously damage a business reputation. In reality, many businesses don’t know what they are doing. “
She says, “Too many business owners get excited (and a little bit confused) about social media and public exposure; yet don’t allocate experience to make it happen in a way that improves their reputation.”
Adelaide Tech Guy, Richard Pascoe, says, “Having known Charlie for a few years now, I can confidently say that she has been a huge asset to my business. She provides me with valuable knowledgeable advice and actively contributes to the online side of my business offering new ideas and directions. In Charlie I trust.”
The seed that started Straight Talk was planted 30 years ago. One big goal was to be a trusted advisor and proactive, supportive member of a client’s team. Geoff, Lisa and now also Charlie, work hard to arm their clients with strategies to enhance their results. Straight Talk believe that small and medium business owners are the back bone of our economy and our community and it is these business owners who sponsor the local sports team and give to the local charities. Many of our clients are the heroes; the hero being the Australian small business owner.
Clients enjoy a range of working relationships with Straight Talk, including one-on-one coaching, group coaching, mastermind groups, financial consulting, marketing consulting, workshops and team training. The philosophy is to support clients and their business with passion and integrity, and to continually be looking for ways to better their results… just as any other valued member of the team would.
