About Me

Meet Trish

"Food and hospitality are my passion, my specialty and my way of life."

Armed with a degree in journalism and several years’ hospitality experience, Trish started her writing career editing prominent industry magazines covering hotels, pubs, restaurants and events.

Since leaving full time journalism, Trish has managed the marketing for Australia’s largest food and beverage operation at Crown; written copy and marketing material for food companies and hospitality suppliers; promoted Australia’s team in the world’s most prestigious culinary competition, the Bocuse d’Or; and helped grow Foodservice Australia from a boutique event to one of the country’s leading trade shows.

Along with a strong grasp of marketing to consumers, Trish also has expertise in communicating business to business, or B2B. In today’s ever-changing hospitality landscape, her experience, combined with up-to-the-minute marketing, copywriting and SEO knowledge, will help your business grow and thrive in 2022 and beyond.

Trish is amazing at what she does – The best. What Trish does for Bocuse d’Or Australia goes far beyond her title as Marketing and Promotions Manager.

Trish is passionate about Bocuse d’Or and is very supportive of our candidates and ensures that they are provided with everything they require to perform at their very best. Trish is an amazing person and always goes that extra mile above and beyond. What Trish does for Bocuse d’Or Australia is beyond measure – I can certainly recommend her very highly.

Trish is a naturally gifted and articulate writer. She nails the copy our business requires every time, from concept to delivery.

Vanessa Barnes
Co-founder, FoodLogic
When we set up our food expo, my first call was to Trish Harty to help with the publicity and promotion. I knew her work from the Hospitality Magazine and Crown Restaurants days, and she has been a big part of our success.
Tim Collett
Managing Director, Specialised Events
I worked with Trish to help us create some marketing content to promote my sustainability consultancy and conference speaking business.

After the creative briefing session, which was an eye-opener to start with, she presented us with a great range of creative options that we had never considered. Her creativity and willingness to go above and beyond helped us see what we do from a new perspective.

Trish considered ideas we had not even contemplated and helped us really see the bigger picture of what is possible. Her work was very enlightening and very professional. I highly recommend Trish for anyone wanting to work with a talented writer and original thinker.
