A very important part of our mandate here at Flaunter HQ is to help those in our industry be the very best they can be through upskilling, education and content designed to help PRs think bigger. With recent lockdowns leaving most of us feeling distant, we wanted to take the opportunity to connect and learn together (even if it’s only virtually for now).
We’re hosting a series of three PR Power Lunch Virtual sessions with some of the best in the biz, and all proceeds will be donated to the Women for Afghan Women organisation.
Book your tickets and get learning, ready to emerge from lockdown as a PR powerhouse!

You’d have to have been living under a rock not to notice the massive rise in podcasting in the last few years.
But is this trend a flash in the pan, or one that PRs should be taking a serious look at? We say, plug in those headphones ASAP!
In this virtual PR Power Lunch, we’re taking a look at why podcasting is the next big thing for PRs.
Join Flaunter’s Head of Content & Marketing, Claire Deane, and a panel of special guests including Caitlin Judd and Anna Mackenzie of lady-brains, Steph Taylor of Socialette and Fiona Killackey of My Daily Business Coach as they share why PRs should be considering podcasts, how to pitch guests to podcast hosts and whether you should be launching your own.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to Women for Afghan Women.

PR professionals have come into a world where their dream jobs are changing daily, they are expected to upskill extremely quickly and stay on top of trends all without a whole lot of on the job training. PRs want to know what they can do to excel in their careers, what their options are, and how to adapt in a post-covid world.
In this session, Angela Briggs of talent agency Umenco will discuss:
- How to ace a zoom interview
- How to network / build connections when all events are off.
- What you should look for in your next role
- What hiring managers are looking for in the resumes of PR professionals
- The rise of tools like tiktok to create video resumes, and how PR professionals can use their existing skills to ace them.
- And more.
All proceeds will be donated to Women For Afghan Women.

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
Natalie Knoll is Co-Founder of the Australian label BIRD AND KNOLL. Founded together with Macayla Chapman, it is a beautiful Australian independent luxury label offering the mindful woman mood elevating resort wear that injects escapism and romantic sensibility for a beautifully unique vacation style.
