Michelle Dawson

Marketing Manager

Michelle has more than 20 years’ experience working across events, tourism and marketing in the USA, UK and Australia.

Early in her career, Michelle cut her teeth in the events arena by planning and hosting events for Fortune 500 companies in the US. From the US to the UK, Michelle gained invaluable experience through the acquisition, retention and working relationships with these companies, while also honing her marketing skills.

Returning to Melbourne, Michelle joined the team at the City of Yarra where she developed the tourism and marketing portfolio and established the Inner Melbourne Tourism Group.

After 12 years at Yarra, Michelle took a sea change and moved to Robe, South Australia, where she opened a regional restaurant and events venue with her partner. The ensuing rollercoaster ride that is owner-operator life provided new insights and practical skills and was the launchpad for her boutique branding and marketing agency Hustle + Hush.

Today Michelle works with artisan producers, food and wine venues and events operators across Australia to explore possibilities, gain efficiencies and improve their reach.
