The solution

SEC Newgate created a media event in front of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House for Chloë, which included a media call and close coordination with reporters, photographers and videographers.

Once overseas and swimming, SEC Newgate collaborated with our UK colleagues to ensure the record announcement, footage and interview opportunities were readily available to global news outlets.

The outcome

Chloë’s record attempt – and success – received widespread media coverage across major Australian television, radio and print outlets.

Chloë’s enhanced profile has positioned her for greater successes, including better access to sponsors, media and other stakeholders for her future endeavors.
