Pritchitt Partners held its inaugural new financial year lunch in Melbourne with guest of honour Sally Loane, CEO of the FSC, on 27 July.
Pritchitt Partners also hosts regular, smaller lunches in its own right in Melbourne and Sydney where it invites clients as well as half a dozen or so investment and financial journalists.
The lunches form part of our own relationship-building with journalists that underpin the client services provided. They help create contact with journalists that allow us to encourage consideration of client material and events; promote contact with clients as reliable sources of material; and seek journalist feedback on how clients are seen.
