• WHY

    You have a message. You need to make sure it reaches the right people and makes the right difference to your business or organisation.


    I’m a multimedia miracle worker. I design and deliver practical, relevant, clever and powerful communications and media solutions.


    I connect people with their target audiences. I position leaders as thought leaders. I use language that cuts through the noise and makes the right people stop, listen, and take action.


    Let’s talk, shall we?


    Call me, send an email, or we can meet for a cuppa.

  • WHO I AM

    Tricia Karp



    With 25 years' experience as a communications professional, I was around when typewriters were the norm in TV newsrooms and mobile phones were bigger and heavier than house bricks.


    My career began in traditional media, serving as a commercial radio and TV news and current affairs journalist, prime time TV news presenter, ABC radio news director, voice artist, and magazine writer. As a senior corporate communications adviser, I consulted, liaised with media, trained and wrote for clients in the state and federal governments, and across the transport, tourism, health, insurance, unions, not-for- profit, education, agriculture and wine industries.


    My own successful speaking, training and coaching business has been marketed mostly – and most effectively – online, organically and honestly.


    Today I bring my vast experience to my clients, to help them cut through the noise so they can get their message heard and inspire their right people to take action.


    Quite simply, I’m a communications specialist with a sharp eye and ear for a great story, keen intuition, and loads of practical and relevant know-how. I'll help you connect with your audiences, cultivate trust and loyalty, and achieve excellent results.


    I'm also the author of two books, including the Amazon number one bestseller "Own It: Powerful Speaking for Powerful Women", and "Media Talk: 35 Secrets You Need to Know Before You Talk to the Media".
