Managing Director, Australiaalawler@webershandwick.com
Ava has spent over 27 years consulting with companies on how to liberate their potential through effective communications in Australia, as well as across Asia, Europe and South Africa. She began her career in Brisbane helping organisations such as the Australian Sugar Industry, Seppelt Wines and Telecom Australia (now Telstra) engage with consumers.
Ava’s love of adventure took her career to London and later South Africa, where she developed a strong understanding of the technology sector and expertise in corporate communications. Ava returned to Australia in an agency business management role, and she has spent more than 22 years of her career managing agency businesses in Australia and across Asia Pacific.
Prior to joining Weber Shandwick, Ava was in a global role driving the digital transformation and talent development programs of a multinational firm.
With family and friends now scattered all over the world, Ava is a massive advocate for the connective power of social media and the behavioural transformation it is bringing to all sectors of society. Her two children claim to be “Facebook famous” and her golden retriever, Rocket, is rapidly building a fan base.
