The Press Gallery team includes some of the best news writers and presenters in South Australia.

We know what news is and we know where your story will best make its mark and how to get it there for maximum publicity for our clients.

The Press Gallery won’t  just write a press release and push it out the door to media outlets and their paper piles, never to be seen again.

We invest in your news from start to finish. We listen to you to learn your story and work with you to shape it before using our unrivaled network of contacts across all media to get outcomes for you.

Our work is readily measured. It is there in print, on radio and in news bulletins, not sitting on a pile of press releases on a news editor’s desk.

Every business and organisation faces issues. Some will encounter crisis. It’s how you deal with both that ultimately separates you from your competitors and in some cases sees you emerge from the tough times even stronger.

The Press Gallery has a culture of preparedness. Ideally, we work with clients well before an issue arises or a crisis hits to mitigate risk and plan for the worst. At the same time, we are ready to step in to support you – even if we’ve never met.

Rapid responders, we have the experience and expertise to break down complex issues quickly to provide respectful but also frank and assertive advice.

With a proven ability to ‘see around corners’ we proactively prevent and, where needed, diffuse issues through timely, strategic and targeted action.

Our calm and articulate approach ideally positions us to protect, enhance and, where needed, restore reputations.

The Press Gallery team offers a fully integrated approach to communications, with our services encompassing digital and social media strategies which work within a wider communications plan. In today’s digital world, the ability to engage on a range of social media platforms is paramount to remaining relevant.

Our social media services are bespoke and tailored according to the client and their unique objectives. These services include content creation, day-to-day social media channel management, advertising campaigns and analytics.

We also offer strategy development, policy guidance and audits which help businesses put in place long-lasting social media systems and processes. The Press Gallery can help roll-out these strategies or simply assist in providing the foundations which a client can implement independently.

With a passion for telling stories in creative ways and the rise in the popularity of video content marketing, The Press Gallery offers a video production service to oversee the creation of quality video work from the inception to completion. The seamlessness of this service ensures your message is consistent, your goals are met, your direction is followed and the video is a work of art.

The Press Gallery’s video production service includes:

  • Storyboarding
  • Scripting
  • Editing
  • Video production
  • Key message creation
  • Location liaison
  • Distribution on social media
  • Graphics
  • Royalty free music

Be it a video for a presentation, a boardroom lunch, a high-powered event or a promotional video – we’ve got the skills, expertise and network of renowned videographers at our fingertips to create a tailored and stylised product.

BRYAN LITTLELY

DIRECTOR

Bryan is an award-winning, recognised and respected journalist with more than 25 years’ experience in the media industry.

Compelling content creation is at the heart of Bryan’s ongoing work in media and for clients of The Press Gallery. Having led both daily metropolitan and regional newspapers and specialist publications, Bryan’s diverse experience and his ability to identify the news angles to deliver messages is his true strength.

An unrivalled network of media contacts, both in South Australia and nationally, contributes to Bryan’s performance for clients, and his intricate understanding of what makes the media tick makes him arguably one of the safest sets of hands when it comes to managing a crisis.

Bryan’s experience as a senior media officer in a Federal Government department, and ongoing involvement on charity boards continues to add to his skills and keeps his finger on the media and public relations pulse.

A love of and great respect for regional Australia and its hard-working people, often has Bryan’s eyes focused on the country and the achievements of those who live there. The former Advertiser Regional Editor and founder of the popular Statewide column would like nothing more than to promote those outstanding businesses and achievements of our regions and, as such, heads up The Press Gallery’s regional projects arm.
