fireside amplifies your positive impact through powerful storytelling.
We help people tell stories about their work, by creating content their audience will engage with. Check out the links on this page for examples of our approach.
We are a content-led communications agency that does great work for those doing great things.
Are you ready to be your own media channel? Now everyone has the power to tell stories that convey their purpose and impact, through engaging content they create and distribute. Fireside can help you build your storytelling capability, from strategic advice to execution, so you can reach the right people with content that cuts through the noise.
Who We Are
Founder Ben Hart has 20 years experience working across the media and communications industries. Over that time he has led the communications functions at headspace and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and developed compelling narratives for organisations in the energy, transport, not-for-profit and sports sectors. He has advised leaders across all three tiers of government, while maintaining a presence in the media, writing for The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, Guardian Australia, ABC Life and Broadsheet. Most recently he was the Chief of Staff to the Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp.
Ben works with a range of leading content makers, strategists and other professionals to help good organisations make powerful connections with the people that matter to them.
What we do
We believe anyone can benefit from good storytelling, no matter how big or small they are, or who they are trying to talk to (customers, the general public, internal staff, government or the media). We work with not-for-profits, public sector bodies, community organisations, start-ups, large companies, SMEs and even one-man bands. We can help if you’re starting from scratch, or you’re stuck in the development of your storytelling machine and need some help.
