About Edelman

We are a different kind of PR agency. We combine PR, digital, social, creative and research services to help businesses succeed.  We are global, but also independent. Edelman has 65 wholly owned offices, more than 5,500 employees, and dozens of affiliates around the world. Edelman is a truly global firm that creates value for its clients by engaging stakeholders through powerful ideas, mutual trust and meaningful interaction across a variety of channels.

We are independent and it shows. We are not part of a global holding company and pride ourselves on our ability to work with other agency partners on behalf of a client. We are independent and family-owned and able to focus our resources and energy on providing our clients with the best service possible.

In Australia, we have built an award-winning, full-service communications marketing agency with over 100 professionals across our Sydney and Melbourne offices. From our practice expertise in corporate communications, public affairs, stakeholder engagement, corporate social responsibility, crisis and issues management and B-to-B and B-to-C brand marketing, to our specialty expertise in strategic planning and creative execution, content marketing, research, social media, digital and traditional media relations, we’re constantly striving to deliver successful outcomes for our clients.
