Harrison Polites is a media and content expert as well as a startup and disruptor Public Relations professional who helped with the founding and growth of one of Australia’s fastest growing PR firms. He is perhaps best known for his work on Public Relations with Airtasker, where he invested three years of outstanding work to take the company from startup to household name.
In his first 3 months of working with one of Australia’s newest energy retailers, he scored 22 PR hits, including a Channel 7 television segment.
His extraordinary success in Public Relations is largely attributable to his strong background in business and tech journalism. Having worked previously as editor, producer, and journalist for several business and technical media outlets, including That Startup Show, Business Spectator, The Australian, he is well adept at Australian PR and Comms.
Outside of work, Harrison is an avid traveller, networker and perhaps the most extroverted video game fan you’ll ever meet. He has bungeed in New Zealand, scuba dived in Fiji and has braved a few too many rollercoasters abroad.
Including exclusive delivery of PR for Airtasker.
Harrison is one of the best young business/tech PRs in the country. He's achieved this with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the technology and media industries and a formidable work ethic. But his secret is he works from empathy. He really understands the human beings behind the clients and bylines. It's this empathy that's delivered his clients extraordinary results. It's also earned him the highest respect from Australia's journalists, his senior managers and the staff he's trained.Alexander Liddington-Cox (PR)
Harrison is one of the most talented, patient and efficient leaders that I have had the pleasure to work with. While his talent and knowledge is across the board, his understanding of media, crisis comms and team management is most inspiring. He has not only taught me a lot, but mentored me and helped me understand the business space thoroughly. Harrison is one of the best managers I’ve ever worked with and has always had genuine interest in mentoring his team.Zena Chamas (Journalist)
