Introducing Cathy Beadnell, Communications Support


October 19, 2012 by wandalusst

Cathy Beadnell lends her considerable skills to TTFO. Cathy is a highly effective communications professional with more than a decade of experience in a wide range of communications and publishing settings. She has worked as a communications specialist, providing media relations advice and publications management for a range of organisations (see below). Cathy also has experience in leading communications teams and in strategic management of large member-based organisations. She has a BA in media and a Graduate Diploma in Journalism. Cathy is passionate about social justice, and joining with others to create change.

Cathy spent five years at the Australian Nursing Federation starting out as a journalist and finally managing the communications and journals teams. She also edited the Australian Nursing Journal – a monthly nursing journal distributed to tens of thousands of nurses around the country, and worked as a communications coordinator at the Victorian Trades Hall Council.

Since leaving the ANF Cathy has run her own consultancy. She is currently working for a variety of organisations (all NGOs – mostly health related) doing communications and marketing. This includes media relations for Wintringham specialist aged care service; speechwriting and corporate publications work for Doutta Galla Community Health; developing
publications and online materials for the Australian Practice Nurses
Association re changes to funding nursing positions in general practice. She also edits the Fitzroy Legal Service Law Handbook on an annual basis.

Cathy has never played the ukulele, but she enjoys listening to all string instruments. Since becoming involved as an advisor and supporter to this project she has learnt more than she could have dreamed possible about this underrated (and delightfully portable) instrument…
