Brass Tacks Marketing

Louise Ottewell

Brief Business Description:

I provide marketing strategy, PR, media, campaign consultancy, copywriting, brand positioning and social media advice to my clients. My strengths lie in content production, campaign management and stakeholder engagement.

I have been in the industry for over 20 years and have lived in Cairns for 14 years. My two week stay seems to have blown out slightly…..

Team Members:

Just me, but I am also working with Darren Baines on a joint marketing consultancy business – watch this ‘Space’

Brief personal bio:

Overeducated POM who threw caution to the wind and left England to pursue something – not sure what. Previous places of work include the BBC, Reed Executive, Skytrans, Skyrail – all in marketing and communications roles. After years on the hamster wheel of working for others, I jumped off and here I am!

What are you hoping to gain from coworking at theSPACE:

To meet and be inspired by like-minded folk who are seeking to help guide me away from common self-employed person errors and to gain inspiration from shared ideas.

How can you help your fellow co-workers at theSPACE:

I am more than happy to offer branding and marketing advice to anyone here, and can proofread, articles and projects if you need a second pair of eyes. I also make good cakes.

What are some of your hobbies/interests:

I love musical theatre and do a lot of voluntary work for with the Cairns Choral Society either producing shows, as part of the tech crew or being in shows. I also enjoy writing articles, painting, cooking and hanging out with my dogs.

If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why:

A female James Bond because of the gadgets.
