Time to celebrate!  Recently Heard Communication helped Michele Bray from One Disease prepare for her first ever media interview, on Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise program. Watch it here and be amazed!

Michele was talking up #inkforgood, a new social media campaign in which a $15 donation gets you a funky temporary tattoo and the knowledge that you’re helping to prevent scabies, a disease affecting many Indigenous Australians.

Michele was superb.  She was clear, concise, eloquent, inspirational and memorable.  The way she told a story in in order to get her message across was incredibly powerful. Heard Communication is very proud to be associated with this cause.  Get online everyone and buy a tattoo!
