Today marks one week until the Women in Media Awards, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate and recognise the inspiring women in this industry.
But before the annual night kicks off, we have a few more women to showcase via our Women in Media Profile Series.
Next up on the list is Jackie Crossman, who’s the executive director of Red Agency Sydney.
She’s a distinguished member of the Australasian PR community, a Fellow of the Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) and an all-round corporate and marketing communications wiz, with experience in everything from issues and crisis management to social media, events and sponsorship.
Crossman started her career in radio and after working in global PR, she founded her own consultancy in New Zealand in 1988, a business that eventually became Porter Novelli New Zealand of which she was Managing Director.
Crossman then formed Crossman Communications again in Australia in 2003, before it was acquired by Red Agency in 2016.
Get to know Crossman more below.

My best piece of advice would be…
Something that I tell my colleagues and my daughter all the time is that we’re running a marathon, not a sprint.

Woman are important in business because…
They tend to bring a different perspective to men and they also dominate most household purchases!
