Hush Advisor and Brand Strategist
Andrew Gill has had an involvement and interest in public health since the late 1980’s.
Working with The Quit Campaign he developed and presented health messaging to schools children and families across Victoria.
As a performer he gained insights into the experience of patients, clinicians and volunteers at bedsides and in wards.
The breakthrough way the then Victorian Cancer Council approached changing opinions to tobacco advertising in the 1960’s (to the huge success of Quit and Vic Health today ) is formative in his outlook and the possibilities to changing opinion and behaviour in healthcare.
His company Agent Creative works with corporations and brands on campaigns and projects including online, broadcast and experiential events.
Andrew believes that communicating important messages and developing programs about health and patient care is central to improving patient and staff experience.
