Specialists in Public Relations and Strategic Counsel

Over nearly three decades working at the top end of the public relations profession in Australia and overseas, Tasmanian-owned consultancy, Timmins Ray, has accumulated an unmatched level of understanding and expertise in public relations and strategic counsel.

 We can use that understanding to help you achieve your target outcomes.

Timmins Ray was founded in Tasmania in 1987 and rose to become one of Australia’s most respected public relations consultancies. From Hobart, the firm expanded into Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Auckland to service clients such as Rio, AAMI, Fairfax Publishing, Pasminco, Telstra, Kraft, AGL, Mitsubishi, Department of Army, Melbourne Ports, Melbourne Exhibition and Conventions Centre and Tourism Victoria. Such was its success that Timmins Ray was acquired by the global giant Hill & Knowlton – the second largest public relations company in the world.

In 2013, Timmins Ray re-emerged and returned to Tasmania where its founder Greg Ray joined forces with eldest daughter Jacquie to deliver leading-edge services in public relations and strategic counsel to a blue-chip client list.

Jacquie and Greg now head a team which brings a powerful new dimension to the standard of strategic communication advice available in Tasmania – a dimension based on professional experience at the highest level.

What our clients think:

“The Timmins Ray charting system is a blueprint for knowing who you need to reach, for what purpose and with what message. It’s an excellent communication management tool.”

“Their experience is a powerful benefit in deciding the best course of action for any particular situation. Just as we consider ourselves good at what we do – producing premium wine – they are outstanding at what they do.”

Julian Alcorso, Master Winemaker

“I was genuinely surprised by their ability to rapidly grasp the nuances of our business and to determine how to better promote our competitive advantage. It changed our thinking.”

“The opportunity to go back to our stakeholders and talk about what they told us and what we are doing about it, is remarkably positive for all concerned.”

Julian Alcorso, Master Winemaker

“The very fact we undertook the audit produced a positive response from stakeholders who were pleased to know they were being listened to.”

Steve Whiteley, CEO/Sustainable Timbers Tasmania

“The Timmins Ray Team work collaboratively, with passion, ideas, talents and skill.  They took time to understand what we wanted, helped us to clarify our objectives, developed creative and innovative strategies and have communicated in a language that we could easily understand. Importantly, they deliver when they say they will. As a fledgling company, we particularly appreciate the reliable and individualised service we have received.”
