The Splendid Word evolved from discussions with local business people who identified a gap within the market for high quality, polished communications material.
18 months ago we hatched a grand plan to establish a boutique media and communications consultancy to quench a growing thirst in our heavenly little region for high quality public relations services.
That plan quickly became our reality and we have been thrilled beyond imagination at all The Splendid Word has achieved in such a short space of time.
TSW has been embraced by friends, acquaintances, complete strangers, and businesses small and large, and we take this opportunity to shout a huge thank you to you all.
We are hugely excited today to be expanding our horizons and launching our ‘official’ online presence.
Welcome to The Splendid Word’s brand spanking new website. We invite you to stay and have a look around. Even drop us a line or send us some feedback if your heart desires.
We think it’s pretty darn cool – hope you like it too….
Leonie & Christy….TSW
Christy lives for her family, her friends, her rather-hectic social life… for all things fun, great food, good wine, for her little dog Harry and for camping holidays.
But she lives to write!
She can think of no better way to spend the day than to sit and write all day long (with some good coffee to get started of course).
Christy has always loved to write and was lucky to land a cadetship in newspaper journalism right here in Echuca Moama as a school leaver before heading overseas to see the world (and journal every single day) with her sweetheart.
She has since married that sweetheart, the lovely Troy, and they have three gorgeous children, Tighe (8), Finnella (7) and Marli (4).
While paying off overseas debts and dabbling in customer service, marketing and events and an enjoyable stint as a vet nurse, Christy found herself continually drawn back to writing.
And upon re-establishing her career as a freelance writer with Homescape magazine she pleasantly discovered that her love and talent for writing was still alive and kicking.
You could say…she has come full circle.
Thinker, believer, writer, dream chaser, star gazer….
An eternal optimist, Lee loves to surround herself with all things sunny and bright – family, girlfriends, good times, good reads, good wine and good conversation… She is an ex-newspaper and radio journo and these days spends her time nurturing her three darling heart boys Dhara, Arley & Ged and this cool little media and communications consultancy (TSW) which she & business partner Christy O’Brien run from their homes in Echuca-Moama.
Lee and her hunky boy Craig moved to Echuca-Moama from Ballarat in 2004 – lured by the idyllic river lifestyle, the romantic notion of a quieter paced life in the country, the abundance of fabulous wine bars, restaurants, festivals, camping spots and above all glorious, glorious sunshine. And boy has it delivered.
This little family of five has fallen madly in love with the region, its people and the many hidden treasures which lie beyond the dusty river banks.
We Splendid Word gals love working with clever and creative people in our awesome little community….That is why we were super excited to see the launch of Style Is Eternal on FB recently. It has been such a thrill working on the words with founder Kate McDonald – another dream catcher chasing her bliss.
Fantastic news for the L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program based in Echuca. Moama Bowling Club has been announced as major sponsor of this vital service which will ensure it can be offered to all young learner drivers in the Campaspe Shire. The Splendid Word has loved popping some words together for the announcement.
Congratulations to the team at Naughtons for their outstanding success at the recent Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Victoria (SPASA) Awards of Excellence.
The Echuca and Shepparton based business was named Best Pool Shop in Victoria and
also won the category for Best Concrete Pool by a Country Member.
Exciting to see another wonderful client receiving such deserving acclaim.
