Ishtar Schneider


Summary of work

I fell in love with PR at a young age and that has only grown over time. I was inspired to pursue a career in communications by my aunt and her spirit continues to inspire my work in the health sector each day.

I’ve had a whirlwind experience so far, from an internship at Edelman to returning to the agency nearly eight years later to lead global communications marketing programmes via the London office; I’ve had the opportunity to work on some amazing projects with incredibly talented teams delivering real business results.

It would have been easy to stay in Australia – in an agency and job I absolutely loved. But I wanted to constantly challenge myself to take risks, stay hungry, learn more and deliver the best. That’s who I am as a person and that’s why I love working in PR. I have so much passion for the work we do and I love being involved in driving the industry forward through involvement with organisations like the PRIA, PRCA and HCA. I’m lucky enough to be both a mentor and a mentee and proudly champion ’silent’ issues like mental health to ensure we are future-proofing our teams and businesses and improving our industry together.
