Kendi Burness-Cowan

Strategy & Content Director
Unlikely NRL fan

Kendi started her career as a regional newspaper journalist and spent six years in daily news in regional NSW and Victoria. Since then, she has worked for a major metropolitan publisher and as a media and communications adviser in the government and non-profit sectors, including a number of years with a peak state advocacy organisation. She has been specialising in communications for regional, agri and industrial clients for well over a decade and has had the opportunity to visit nearly every corner of the country creating authentic content for brands that serve these sectors. 

Kendi’s two great passions are strategy and writing, and she loves to combine them to create exciting, innovative, and above all, successful programs for clients. Her writing experience extends across all formats, from news articles and reports to speech writing, advertising and social media.

She also presents the weekly Regional Voices radio program, conceived and created by Hardman Communications to help brands connect with regional and rural audiences.
