Brydie was born in Wodonga. That’s right, the dong – you can’t get more Aussie than that. She fits the true Aussie stereotype; easy going, always up for an adventure and enjoys a drink, or two. She didn’t, however, grow up drinking Fosters beer for breakfast or ride a kangaroo to school.
Brydie studied a bachelor of public relations with a major in media and communications at Deakin University. Her first job out of university saw her at Australia’s largest advertising and experiential marketing agency, where she got a first class introduction into ‘agency life’. Brydie has also worked in-house for a luxury wine brand and for Australia’s largest awareness driven campaign, Red Nose Day.
Brydie is a forward thinking, energetic and creative individual. Her extensive marketing and public relations experience means she has created and coordinated a number of campaigns which have resulted in substantial growth and development for clients and companies. She is a problem solver and is focused on finding the right solution for her clients. She is assertive which means she gets things done efficiently and effectively. Naturally, she understands an organisation’s brand values and harnesses these attributes to successfully engage and excite through promotional campaigns.
She is obsessed with food and everything that comes with it; she will not visit a restaurant if their menu is not available online, and experiences uncontrollable FOMO upon ordering the wrong menu item. You’ll often find Brydie sipping on tasty (preferably gin) cocktails and eating delicious food at her favourite Cayman restaurants including Anchor & Den, Casa 43 and VIVO. Now known as the office meerkat, her senses are alerted by the sounds of tupperware lids being lifted and rustling of wrappers. If she’s not creating compelling and exciting campaigns for clients or tapping up local foodie spots, she will be out on her SUP, relaxing and taking in her new home in paradise.

What is your favourite holiday?
When I was a child, every second year my parents would take my three sisters and I to the Gold Coast. They would pile us into the Nimbus along with our boogie boards and discmans and drive 24 hours over night to the most beautiful hotel in Burleigh Heads. We would spend two weeks on the beach and at the pool, my parents spent most nights bribing us out of the water.
