Former journalist Mark Ravi is a Senior Content Advisor at ReGen Strategic responsible for producing meaningful, impactful content that resonates with readers.
Mark has a broad range of communications experience, having spent time as a print journalist, sports reporter, event photographer and a business owner.
With a deep passion for storytelling, Mark believes everyone has a story to tell and enjoys helping people and organisations to share theirs.
Since joining ReGen in 2019, Mark has put his writing skills to work on advocacy campaigns, media relations, annual reports and general copywriting for clients spanning the government, major corporate, and not-for-profit sectors.
Through his involvement in several long-term public advocacy campaigns, Mark gained experience in seamlessly weaving key messages into content in a way that resonates with readers.
Mark also holds an IAP2 Australasia Certificate in Engagement and puts this knowledge to work for ReGen’s community engagement practice.
He has facilitated and assisted with focus groups, workshops, and other engagement activities across a range of community and stakeholder engagement projects.
He worked with the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC) to develop and deliver a communications plan for the Savanna Fire Management Program, a voluntary offsets agreement between INPEX and the Northern Territory Government being implemented by the ILSC.
This required extensive consultation with the ILSC and INPEX to reach agreement on messaging, narrative, and communication protocols to give both parties the confidence to talk proactively about the project.
Mark recently delivered a review of internal communications at a major resources company, which involved planning and facilitating multiple focus groups with diverse internal stakeholder groups to identify key insights and areas for improvement.
Outside of CGM, Mark has extensive experience in community building, having established the Ninja Challenge League, Australia’s first national league for the growing sport of Ninja Warrior.
This required him to engage with gym owners, athletes, parents to create a consistent standard of competition and buy-in among local communities.
The result has seen hundreds of competitors compete at the local, national, and international levels.
Mark also holds a Bachelor of Arts majoring in psychology from the University of Western Australia, a Graduate Diploma of Journalism from Curtin University, and a Master of Communication Management from Murdoch University.
He has also received a certificate of completion for the Global Reporting Initiative’s Introduction to sustainability reporting and the GRI Standards 2021 Update.
