Melaleuca Media
About Us

Melaleuca Media is a company owned by Phil Dickie and Susan Brown, a husband and wife team with diverse, complementary and well-recognised skills who provide quality advice, research, analysis, writing and images. Melaleuca Media has provided news articles, major features and commentary for most of Australia's national and major metropolitan newspapers and media advisory services and specialist reports and services for governments, international organisations and national and global civil society organisations.

The company was relatively inactive in the period 2008-2016, with both Phil and Susan working in senior capacities with a major international NGO based near Geneva, Switzerland. Phil Dickie is now again available for interesting and worthwhile assignments and commissions. More>>
