I have worked with Joanne from Zanthii for many years through the fashion industry and more recently worked with her to provide entertainment for the Friends With Dignity Magical Christmas Gala Charity Ball, through my Entertainment biz, EPIC Creations. She is always super friendly and engaging, a fantastic communicator and is very enthusiastic about everything she does, making her an absolute dream to work with! Cannot recommend highly enough.

To one of the best PR agents and firms around, more wonderful exposure. Your passion is amazing and it shows with consistent results. To any business who doesn’t think they can afford exposure and a direct increase in customers, then don’t use PR. For those that want it, there is only one choice: Joanne Rahn at zanthii communications.

I’m Suzi Dent Mrs Earth Australia, @suzidentinspirationalspeaker Joanne Rahn from @Zanthii is amazing! She is my PR guru! I have consistently had press all over Australia and internationally, I’ve been on tv on Sunrise and weekend shows, the news, in women’s magazines and interviewed on radio, all because I have her by my side! She has helped me build my brand over the last two years and is a professional powerhouse to work with. She’s also a great chick who has become my friend. I had worked with two other PR agencies before Joanne, but she is my pot of gold who I am happy to share! She will always go above and beyond with everything! She’s awesome!
