Meet the speechwriter behind the words
Hi! I’m Nyree and I’m the Chief Wordsmith and speechwriter around here.
I started out my career in politics – working at both a local and state/territory level. I worked in community engagement, communications and as a ministerial advisor. I wrote all kinds of critical messaging documents from briefs and memos, discussion papers and newsletters through to speeches for Chief Ministers.
My words are in the parliamentary record forever. And I’m pretty freaking proud of that.
When I was done with politics, I moved into health and community services, turning my policy-loving brain to the public health, alcohol and other drugs, child protection and mental health sectors. I was involved in some very important legislative reform that has changed the lives of people living in the Northern Territory.
In 2017, I started my business as a copywriter and content writer and over those years I’ve worked on some incredible projects with some amazing people. But my true love was always in speechwriting and so in 2022, I’m returning to it.
There’s nothing more exhilarating than hearing the words you’ve written being read aloud. I’ll never get tired of it.
