Paul Dent has almost 40 years’ experience in the communications industry.

Three of his campaigns have reached Finalist status at The International Advertising Festival of New York, and he is the winner of a Global Award for Healthcare Communications.

Raised and educated in Albury, Paul worked as a copywriter on regional and agricultural accounts with local advertising agency, Cahill Media, before moving to Sydney in 1989.

Through his 20s, he held the position of creative director in a mid-tier Sydney agency, where he oversaw the promotional language used by some of the biggest players in Australian and international business. These clients included household names such as Canon, Akai, and Citizen Watches.

Paul subsequently went on to become one of Sydney’s most highly regarded freelance writers, working on a variety of blue-chip brands including BHP, Contiki, MasterCard and many more.

He now enjoys the quiet life in his hometown of Albury, but continues to write and edit for clients along the eastern seaboard of Australia as well as international organisations headquartered abroad.
