Straight Up PR draws a line in the sand at Manly Beach

Leading health and wellbeing lifestyle agency Straight Up PR has ridden the health wave into the famous Manly beach.

Passionate about the growing power of the public relations and media industry, Founder and Managing Director Hannah O’Donnell established Straight Up PR in 2013, through a genuine, authentic love for the health and wellness space.

With over 10 years’ experience in public relations, Hannah O’Donnell is an expert public relations professional with a passion for building positive relationships with media, bloggers, influencers, clients, her team, and like-minded people.

Boasting internationally celebrated clients including Mukti Organics, Dr Bronner’s, Pic’s Peanut Butter and United Pacific Industries (UPI), it was no surprise that in her first year of business at Straight Up PR, Hannah was awarded B&T’s prestigious 30 Under 30 Award.

For Hannah O’Donnell, relocating to the beachside of Manly from the hustle and bustle of Surry Hills was the natural next step for the leading wellness company. “As a company based on health, wellbeing and an active lifestyle – there is nothing more inspiring than working along side one of Australia’s most famous beaches,” she says.

Straight Up PR is all about understanding people, building and maintaining relationships, cutting the spin and being real. With a Straight Up and zealous attitude, Straight Up PR boasts formidable relationships, ideas and strategic leadership, combined with an infectious energy that can’t be taught.

“Straight Up PR is an absolute breeze to deal with and are super lovely and approachable. Communication is straightforward, the passion for the brand is most certainly there, and Hannah and her team totally understand media” says Samera Kamaleddine, Editor of Women’s Fitness.

After working with so many health and wellbeing influencers, the need for a sub-brand Straight Up People was realised in 2015. Straight Up People offers a holistic and genuine approach to talent management, and focuses on personalities across the health and wellbeing industry. Amongst those who make up the influential Straight Up People list, includes Sarah Ravindram, Beau Walker, Cassey Miller, Elise Carver, Scott Gooding and Cassie Mendoza-Jones.

“The Straight Up PR team truly understand the health and wellbeing field. As a fitness expert for Women’s Health Magazine and head trainer for BUF Fitness, Straight Up PR understand my mission, my message and my community,” Cassey Miller, fitness expert for Women’s Health Magazine.

Having just added seven new business wins to its health and wellbeing and lifestyle PR portfolio, Straight Up PR are moving from strength to strength in the wellness field.
