With 25 years’ experience in the media and publishing industries, Jill will help you pinpoint your unique story, and tell it with impact.

As a highly skilled speechwriter and content specialist, she has delivered powerful thought-leadership strategies for prominent change-makers.

Jill has written keynote speeches and opinion pieces for former Prime Ministers, Board Chairs, CEOs, political figures and community leaders, which have been delivered at international conferences and major public events, and placed prominently in leading media outlets.

Her engaging social media content plans have helped position executives as thought leaders in their fields, amplifying their brand and influencing national policy and public debate.

One of her greatest skills is capturing an organisation or leader’s unique voice, and harnessing it to cut through the noise and get their message in front of a wider audience.

As an experienced journalist and the author of three best-selling books, she prides herself on being able to take complex information and ideas and distil them into a format that is accessible.

In a fast-paced, digital world, Jill provides valuable insider advice on how to be creative and nimble, using well-crafted words to build connection and increase engagement.

Her services can be tailored to suit your individual needs but her specialist areas are:

  • Speechwriting
  • Thought leadership: LinkedIn content and op-ed ghost writing
  • Media training and storytelling workshops

Jill has worked with some of Australia’s most trusted non-profit and for purpose organisations, and those in the corporate and government sectors, supporting them to amplify their advocacy.

Jill’s full-day and half-day training sessions cover everything from understanding the 24-hour media cycle to the power of a good pitch and how to capture your unique story.

She also advises leadership teams on reputation risk management, crisis communications and media messaging, particularly through periods of turbulence and transition.

"With an increase in media attention on trans and gender diverse stories and issues, we felt we needed some professional advice and guidance. We asked Jill to help and she provided us with practical advice, a range of scenarios, role play and how to tackle tough questions. She also tailored our session specifically to our needs and spent time researching and preparing accordingly. We were given materials that we can refer to anytime to revise when required. The session was packed, with room for discussion and we came away feeling excited by what we had learnt and more confident in new situations. Jill Stark is very good at what she does. We highly recommend her to you."

Rebekah Robertson: Founder of Transcend, and Georgie Stone: Victorian Young Australian of the Year
