What we do
With a long history in journalism and communications, we write quality copy that is engaging and accurate. Having written for a range of industries including entertainment and arts, government, finance, news, universities and advertising we will shape your content to your tone of voice. We research a broad variety of sources, including your team and your competitors, to write targeted content that is customer-centric with authority. Before putting pen to paper, we put ourselves in the place of our audience to ensure immediate and consistent engagement.
Written and Recorded copy cuts through on several platforms, including:
- Marketing communications

- Social Media
- Webinar and Facebook live scripts
- Editorials & articles

Accuracy is assured as we have forged our skills in the high-pressure environment of live radio and news production.
We have over 40 years combined experience in audio production having worked in both commercial media and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. With a micro studio, we have the capability to produce very high quality recordings in-house, as well as the flexibility to record onsite in almost any location. Audio productions can be managed from idea to completion including:
- Conference recordings
- Live streaming of events
- Phone system recordings
Who we are
Serpil has worked within media and communications for over 20 years and brings passion, commitment, experience and an effervescent personality. In this time she has presented live TV and radio from local and international locations and produced several high rating programs. And in her communications roles she’s formulated strategic plans in both government and commercial organisations.
In 2015 she secured an exclusive interview with then Prime Minister Tony Abbott in Turkey for ABC Radio’s broadcast of the centenary commemorations of the Gallipoli landings. She also reported live into ABC News 24’s The World program. In 2016, Serpil presented the Afternoon program and The Sunday Sesh on ABC Local Radio to a national audience. She is a regular co-host on Jon Faine’s The Conversation Hour on ABC Radio Melbourne.
James began his broadcasting career presenting commercial breakfast radio, moving to technical and production roles within the ABC for more than a decade. During that time he worked with Richard Stubbs, Red Symons and Jon Faine as both content producer and studio operator.
In 2016 James joined Alan Kohler to launch his online investing publication The Constant Investor which introduced a number of podcasts. He built an onsite studio and developed a mobile recording system that enabled high quality recordings in almost any location, including the noisy cafe where The Money Cafe podcast is recorded. As the business grew James was promoted to Managing Editor and General Manager where he wrote the majority of the marketing copy for the website, EDMs, conversion emails and social media.
Work we've done
The University of Melbourne is Australia’s #1 tertiary institution and a world leader in education, teaching and research excellence. Serpil Senelmis has worked with the University’s graduate online team to create marketing collateral such as international educational expo information flyers…
What our clients say
Serpil has a way of writing that makes the reader feel it was written directly for them.
I first encountered her writing in the form of conversion emails and marketing collateral which she prepared for my marketing team. I quickly realised that her writing style was engaging and effective and I invited her to re-write all of the copy for the University of Melbourne graduate online website.
Serpil’s words have made a real difference to the way our prospective students engage with the University.
James Brandis set up an effective micro studio and a number of podcasts for my website theconstantinvestor.com.
The very first interview recording we did was during the lunch break of a large investing conference which was extremely noisy! James assured me that I didn’t need to shout, just to let the microphones do the work – and he was right. The deafening noise of the crowd faded into the background and our voices could be heard clearly.
James’ recording and editing always made me sound better than I remembered!
