“Turn down any work that you're not 100% happy with” with Bec Brown

Influence Unlocked

Bec Brown is the founder and director of highly successful PR agency, The Comms Department, known for representing some of Australia’s and the world’s biggest and best-known media, entertainment travel and lifestyle brands. But before she built her name as the PR behind big names like the Australian Radio Network, Bras n Things and Amazon Prime Video, Bec started out by following her dreams to be a singer and musician. Bec spent the early years of her career travelling the world, building her career and landing gigs in England, Fiji, Sweden and France. But hustling for gigs and singing in restaurants eventually lost its lustre, and Bec realised that it’s not always the best idea to turn your passion into a profession. She returned to Australia and retrained in PR, working her way through some top agencies before launching The Comms Department in 2012 with her most recent employer, Universal Music, as her first client. Last year Bec released her first book, You’ve Got This, compiling everything she’s learned on her fabulous career journey. Tune in to find out how the book came about, what Bec does when she needs to refuel, her advice for business owners starting out and why she’ll never be a professional brownie baker.

I retrained and began a career in public relations, working on campaigns spanning entertainment, media, travel, food, fitness, retail, medicine, finance and more” YOU HAD ME AT PIVOTED!!! And so, the magnificent Bec Brown fitted perfectly into my ‘So, I Quit’ brief and the rest is podcast history.It was as much of a delight getting her on the pod as her incredible Bec Brown Brownies that she bakes and are her trademark in the Australian media space. Bec is the founder and MD at The Comms Department whose client list include radio royalty Kyle & Jackie O, Jonesy & Amanda, Bras N Things, Red Nose Day to name a few.In between running a successful PR company, baking brownies and keeping fit Bec also found the time to write the incredible ‘You’ve Got this’. Combining 20+ years of creative experience and working with some of the biggest entertainment and media brands in the world, PR professional and founder of The Comms Department, Bec Brown brings you YOU’VE GOT THIS –the ultimate career hack for anyone wanting to build their dream career in any creative industry. Trust me it is a cracking read with frame worthy illustrations by Inga Campbell. Enjoy our chat and to quote Jack Nicholson “Bec you make me want to be a better publicist” – obviously I tweaked the original line from ‘As Good As it Gets’ but you get my drift…‘You’ve Got This’ is available wherever you buy your books – it is also available as an audio book voiced by some chick called Bec Brown.www.thecommsdepartment.com.au@becbrowncommunications See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
