About

Trevor Young is a PR Warrior on the frontline of the communications revolution.

A former journalist turned marketing communications specialist and PR entrepreneur, Trevor has a strong track record working with some of the world's biggest brands as well as countless start-ups, fast-growth companies, nonprofits and sports properties.

Today, he helps companies and organizations of all sizes make sense of the social web. Rather than get bogged down in technical jargon, Trevor strips away the hype surrounding social media and presents a realistic picture of the opportunities (and challenges) facing companies today.

But he takes things a step further.
 The world has changed, the playing field has leveled. Understanding the new media landscape is one thing, but how do you navigate it? How can you position yourpersonal or corporate brand to take advantage of today’s hyper-connected ideas-based economy?

Trevor paints a vivid picture of the broader societal changes at play thanks to the emergence of the social web, including humanization of brands, the rise and rise of community and the participatory nature of today’s savvy consumer. Armed with ‘up-to-the-minute’ examples and case studies from Australia and overseas, Trevor can demonstrate how you too can deepen the intensity of connection with the people who matter most to your business, cause or issue.
