Natalie is a communications manager, copywriter (TV, web/social, brand collateral), writer (editorial, interviews, blog posts), and she also creates content strategies for startups, festivals and big (and small) brands.
Sydney-born and London-based, Natalie Reiss began writing as soon as she could hold a pen and lock her diary. Upon graduating from UNSW, Natalie worked as a writer for Yen Magazine and Drum Media, while interning at CLEO, it was all very The Devil Wears Prada.
Writing led to the dark side (aka Public Relations) and Natalie worked for Rina Ferris (MTV, ARIA Awards, Live Aid,) and Markson Sparks PR (Hay House Publishing, IMAX Sydney) before finding a home in The Lantern Group at Fox Studios, under the helm of Victoria Buchan. While at Lantern, Natalie’s clients included the Sydney Film Festival, Nine Network and Negus Media – there was a lot of hard work, countless red carpets and yes, Madonna headsets. And then London called…
Natalie gained UK PR experience at Taylor Herring, Borkowski and the BBC, before moving to an in-house role at London College of Communications, University of the Arts London (LCC, UAL). It was at LCC that Natalie flexed her writerly and creative muscles while also bringing a wealth of PR agency experience to the team, and building a social media presence for the Arts College.
In 2016, Natalie did a scary thing and went freelance so that she could a) spend more time working with brands and companies she believed in (hello, purpose-based work) and b) write, produce and release an EP.
Fast-forward to present day and Natalie has released her EP, and she continues to freelance in communications, copywriting and content – most recently, she worked on the Bloomberg docuseries, ART + TECHNOLOGY.
“Extremely conscientious and hard-working, Natalie is proactive and a pleasure to have on the team." - Bill Muirhead, Executive Director at M&C Saatchi and Agent General for the Government of South Australia
