Connecting Up – online workshops 


Newsletter copywriting, storytelling and content website writing workshops to engage supporters and attract donors for nfpos 



Connecting Up is a charity providing low-cost tech products and training to other not-for-profits

They engage specialists like me to deliver Training & Education programs, webinars and online workshops designed for the needs of NFPs.

I have developed a comprehensive series of online masterclasses and bootcamps for Australian and New Zealand nfpo’s to participate in. These training opportunities were delivered with accessible and actionable content to build content and community relationships, and plan for straightforward communication strategies for charities of all sizes and staff of all skill sets to execute. I’ve now delivered these workshops to hundreds of global charities and organisations who make a difference in our communities.

“As Communications and Marketing Manager at RFDS Victoria I have had the pleasure of working with Andrea for several years.

She has brought a wealth of experience and passion to a range of Flying Doctor campaigns, from our Kids Club program, to public relations campaigns such as ‘Flick us a Flynn’ and other media opportunities. It has been wonderful to have Andrea’s support. By simply providing her with a brief, I have had the comfort of knowing Andrea is across a project. This has assisted our busy team to focus on other priorities. Andrea has also provided media training to our executives – offering an understanding of media cycles and best practice approaches to issues management. Thank you, Andrea, for your commitment to quality communications, branding and service delivery!”
