About Us - MediaConnect

Maha Obeid
Maha Obeid Research Manager Maha Obeid is MediaConnect's Research Manager. Originally, Influencing's PR reporter she now manages the company's industry leading research team. Maha boasts that her middle name is pedantic and she casts a careful eye over the integrity of the Influencing database. As well as managing MediaConnect's researchers she contributes to the daily updating process and liases with clients on any specific research requests they may have. She started her career as a cadet reporter at the Herald Sun in Melbourne. Her freelance writing took her as far as Beirut, where she spent time with family while working as a news stringer. Before joining MediaConnect she did a stint in PR, working in the gulf. She managed accounts including the inaugural Doha Tribeca Film Festival in 2009, where she was knee-deep in press releases and missed Robert De Niro's apearance. She now lives in the inner-west of Sydney and her favourite sport is cafe crawling. Maha can be reached at maha@mediaconnect.com.au or on +61 2 9894 6277.

Maha Obeid - Research manager, MediaConnect


MediaConnect Australia | Influencing Blog

MediaConnect will strengthen Australia's only dedicated, daily coverage of the public relations industry with the appointment of Maha Obeid, a 20-year communications industry veteran, to the role of public relations reporter.
Originally trained as a cadet reporter at the Herald Sun, Obeid's career has seen her work at The Daily Telegraph, as a stringer in Beirut for The Australian and as a freelance journalist whose work appeared in variety of major titles including The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, marie claire, That's Life and Australian Good Taste. She has also worked in local and B2B media, giving her a strong grounding in press dynamics across a range of media. Her most recent work has been in the public relations industry, as a contractor in Sydney and previously as an account manager for Dubai-based agency The Portsmouth Group where she worked on a range of accounts including Qtel's Virgin Mobile Service, Christie's Middle East, the inaugural Doha Tribeca Film Festival and Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. "Maha is a perfect fit for this role, with her experience spanning both the media and PR industries, and we're delighted to have such an experienced journalist covering the PR beat for us, who has also come directly from that industry," said MediaConnect chief executive officer Phil Sim. Writing primarily for MediaConnect's Influencing website, Obeid will report on PR industry news and trends at both an agency and corporate communications level. Soft-launched earlier this year, Influencing will launch formally later this month with the goal of providing in-depth and comprehensive editorial for PR professionals and reputation managers. Obeid said she was attracted to the opportunity to combine her experience in the PR industry with her love of reporting. "I have worked in the media industry since I was 18 and I am fascinated by the whole communications process," Obeid said. "Public relations plays an increasingly important role in linking journalists, and the wider community, with the pressing and important issues of the day". Obeid said that her experience using MediaConnect's tools and services encouraged her to actively seek opportunities with the company, as she felt the company's ambitions were very much aligned with her own interests and career objectives. Maha can be contacted at maha@mediaconnect.com.au or on (02) 9894 6277. She is interested in receiving announcements or tips related to any news or events related to the public relations and corporate communications industries. PR releases and announcements can also be sent to pr@mediaconnect.com.au.
