Founded 23 years ago by Marie-Claude herself,MCMPR has become recognised as one of the leading Australian go-to agencies and is know for their brand strategy, public relations, VIP and influencer cultivation, events and activations, marketing partnerships and consumer relations.
We visited Marie-Claude Mallat at her beautiful new HQ in Darlington, Sydney to talk about her career, her advice, the ways she stays organised and of course - her new space.
Primarily my family and my friends. My husband has always offered me really great, and sound, practical advice. My father is a really wise person and has always been really instinctive about people and has given me lots of direction in that space, but also he has been very very supportive.
However, I would have to say, that the biggest supporters have been my team. My General Manager has been amazing, and things wouldn't happen on a day-to-day basis without her.
Talk to us about this beautiful new MCMPR space...
We found this new space (located in Darlington, Sydney) last year and absolutely fell in love with it. The natural curves and arches. It had great bones and was perfect for us.
How to do stay organised day-to-day?
I like to write everything down. I find when I write things down I'm able to commit it to memory so I tend to use a diary.
I also work a lot off lists so I do like a lined book or notebook. It allows me to list everything I need to do and then I'm able to highlight or tick those things off.
What are you disorganised at?
Filing my emails!
What would your advice be to your younger self when you were about to launch your business?
I think my advice would be - back yourself to believe in your instinct and to just go for it.
