This week, we hosted our final PR Power Lunch of 2021 with Violeta Tentomas of West 14th and Natalie Knoll of Bird & Knoll, touching on:

  • What international audiences love about Australian brands, and how to tell these stories
  • How Australian and International media differ – how do they like to be pitched to, what angles are they interested in and what’s trending in media and influencer activity around the world.
  • Whether you need to have an on-the-ground resource for international media activity
  • And more.

We heard  from:

Violeta Tentomas, Founder West 14th

At 16 when I should have been studying with a friend, we took the train into New York City, where we stumbled into the Fashion Institute of Technology’s campus on 27th street. That was it and my mind was made up – this was my college. I then found a major to blend creativity and busines and launched into my career as a fashion buyer. Ultimately, it came as no surprise when launching West 14th 8+ years ago to focus on the concept of forever. Modern day heirlooms to treasure, share and resale.

Natalie Knoll, Founder Bird & Knoll
