“Matisse is a brand and campaign strategist with a social impact and public relations background. She develops meaningful and poignant storytelling to create deep social change.
Matisse has been involved in the design and execution of national and global campaigns for 10+ years, across the environmental, start up and pop-culture arenas.
Matisse led the Pacific region for Greenpeace for four years, worked for Southern Cross Austereo in integrated marketing campaigns, was a marketing business coach for SME’s in the Australian-aided ‘Fiji Enterprise Engine’ and is a PR specialist with Australia’s Launch Group.
Matisse’s passion is creating movements by aligning strong solutions and messages with growing communities.
With intentional storytelling, inclusivity and resonance being a core focus of Matisse’s work, she has developed deep expertise in community mobilisation through the de-privileging of communication, content and engagement tactics.
Her goal is always to inspire & incite authentic action from those best placed to progress a cause, or support a brand.
In 2018, Matisse’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to co-found ‘The Projects Collective’, a platform and co-working space for ethical artisans in the Pacific, as well as ‘The Projects Creative‘, an educational portal for those needing a little help organising and energising their big brave idea.”
