Justine Firth - Head of Customer, Brand & Marketing Adelaide Airport

"Haley has worked on Adelaide Airport’s social media account for the past 2.5 years and has taken our channels to new heights. She is a true professional, always up to date with social media trends and has provided us with great strategic advice and direction managing our channels. She continuously comes up with proactive content ideas for us to make our channels more engaging and we have seen the results of this through our increasing follower base over the past two years. She always has the right approach when dealing with potential media issues too, knowing how to diffuse a situation. It’s a pleasure working with Haley and the Hughes Team on this aspect of our business."

Clare MacAdam - Fundraising & Marketing Manager Baptist Care SA

"Baptist Care SA and Hughes PR have been working together for close to four years. While our relationship has focused on responsive PR advice and support, and more recently Social Media investment, we've also engaged them to train our Board and Senior staff on an as needs basis. When COVID-19 struck, Tim's email to clients offering timely and practical Comms support enabled us to respond quickly and effectively. The team is always friendly, engaged and proactive with their advice. As Baptist Care SA moves into new territory with fee for service offerings and a heightened public awareness of the social issues we seek to address, Hughes PR is a trusted partner."

Mark Young - CEO Adelaide Airport

"Hughes is a trusted advisor in the inner sanctum of our business.  The guidance and direction I receive from Hughes is world class.  They understand our business and their ability to manage difficult situations effectively and efficiently is second to none."

Mark Pearce - Winemaker Kellermeister

"Hughes is a responsive and professional PR partner, providing timely feedback and suggestions to help us best get our message out in a noisy market. I can fully endorse and recommend the Hughes team for its professionalism and ability to deliver measurable outcomes with our communications."

Rose Lacoon-Williamson - Business Developer Youth Inc

"Hughes PR’s insight in how to market to younger audiences enabled us to reach a far broader cohort than our previous online campaigns; and in a far shorter time frame. Furthermore, Hughes helped us amplify our impact and connect with new supporters and partners."

Mark Jarman - CEO Flagship Group

"As our PR specialist, Hughes has worked closely with us on our Adelaide projects. Their knowledge of marketing and expertise in public relations is a huge advantage to our business."

Alec Gilbert - CEO Adelaide Convention Centre

"After dealing with two other PR firms in as many years we appointed Hughes.  The other firms did not provide enough exposure to our key messages, and did not have the depth of knowledge and experience or the connections that Hughes PR has.  Hughes’ connections within both sides of Government, business and media is of great value to our business."

Ian Marker - General Manager ADC

"Hughes has been fundamental in managing profile lifting campaigns as well as internal communications. They have a fantastic understanding of the environment in which we operate." 

Jayne Flaherty - Head of Communications BankSA 

"Hughes provides us with an external view that is always backed by professionalism and sound judgement. BankSA’s relationship with Hughes has progressed to one of entrenched trust and understanding." 

Julianne Siggins - GM Communications & Strategic Development Anglicare 

"The development of key messages, a communications and events calendar and implementation of a monthly review has been instrumental in our strategic planning and tactical management of new and existing programs.  With Hughes’ guidance I have been able to develop quality internal and external programs and have been able to break down barriers between teams."

Abhra Bhattacharjee - Head of Enrolments Scotch College

"I don’t have to worry about PR at all.  Hughes is our strategic counsel – not a supplier.  I think we get more than our share of voice and Hughes is responsible for that.”

Jim Kouts - Head of Corporate Affairs GDF SUEZ Australian Energy

"Hughes gets the big picture and I trust them to provide an independent and comprehensive overview and response in any given situation. I rely on Hughes to provide the strategic communications counsel that makes a difference to us and our business."

Anthony Paech - Managing Director Beerenberg 

"Hughes has made a difference to our business by positioning me strongly within the food industry in Australia.  Essentially I am now one of only a few national figureheads for the industry. Hughes has also helped Beerenberg gain local and national exposure particularly with our rebrand and with major food and supermarket issues."

Francesca Doyle - Marketing Manager TAFE SA 

"Hughes helps us to manage the workflow of TAFE SA Communications and helps us to create better outcomes with our limited resources."
