About Us

  • We understand the most relevant ways and times to connect with consumers and how to amplify their experiences

  • When was the last time you truly connected with a brand?

    Every product or service should chase this connection!

    Our passion at Chatter is creating these memorable, exciting & engaging brand experiences all around the country.

    We develop these individual strategies & activations for each brand.

    As an agency we go that little bit further because we have learnt over the years in this industry…the little things make a BIG difference.

What We Do

Brand Experience

    Anywhere, Anytime…

    From Yeppoon to Kalgoorlie and everywhere in-between, Chatter can help your brand connect with local communities through strategic Local Area Marketing campaigns.

    Target Australia & Chatter have teamed up supporting stores around the country to maintain & build positive brand connections.

    The Local Area Marketing strategies always build upon Target’s core pillars of Style, Value, Experience & Quality within these plans.

    A Quality Consumer Journey is more than just a sample…

    Lindt and Chatter have worked together for many years delivering Quality Customer Experiences throughout Australia.

    Chatter understands specific Trade Account requirements to ensure that every activation is relevant & applicable to each key account.

    Chatter looks forward to continuing its strategic and activation partnership and always having the customer at the centre of the Journey!

    Going Back to School…

    The Chatter team was challenged to develop a strategic (fun, high energy & memorable) campaign that connected & engaged with students at O-Week events nationally.

    Seeking inspiration from the hit TV show ‘Minute to Win It’, the Chatter
    team created the ‘V Energy Challenge’!

    Over 38,000 students all around the country connected directly with the brand.

The Team

Matt Hayes

Matthew Basil Hayes (The Basil is silent) is a veteran of this industry and after spending 10 minutes talking to him about it you can understand a couple of things. Firstly, he loves experiential marketing with a passion and secondly his 20 years experience clearly shows!

Lisa Johnston

Lisa has known nothing else other than working in Agency land (and working in Myer… we all start somewhere!) even before she finished her degree. Over the years, Lisa has almost taken on every role within an agency, learning from many clients and the industry till eventually co-founding Chatter Brand Experience.

Paul Ioakim

To find something Paul hasn’t done is actually rather hard. He has lived in New York, rolled out global projects, leveraged sponsorship opportunities at numerous events and delivered quality campaigns for his clients. He is a true believer in the power of a relevant brand experience… although he is known to be a tough judge!

Kevin Turner

Kevin brings to Chatter a vast experience of business and financial management specifically in PR/Experiential agencies accumulated over many years. He holds a Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Sydney and is a qualified member of the CPA. His diverse experience has allowed him to be a key driving force behind the scenes at Chatter Brand Experience.

Ben Fettes

Benjamin Michael Xavier Fettes (Ben for short) has a breadth of knowledge and experience that has been gained from many campaigns inc. PR Stunts, Creative Builds, Sponsorship Leveraging, In-Store Campaigns and Mobile Roadshows. His true strength is in production, bringing the strategies to life and he is definitely not afraid of hard work for our clients.

Mary Charleston

After Mary was too good for the TV screen (we like to think she had a Gold Logie coming), she focused on running the pre-game entertainment at the AFL, Grand Prix and even the Rugby. Eventually focusing her efforts in the world of staffing, she has spent the last 12+ years rolling out hundreds of campaigns.
