Dr Alex Hynes – Bondi Vet

Four Drunk Parrots created a kick-ass brand for Dr Alex Hynes, developing an awesome integrated social, PR and product line campaign, which resulted in us growing her reach from nothing to 200,000 per week, and achieving 1.25 media opportunities every week. And we have only just begun.

About Dr Alex Hynes – Bondi Vet

Dr Alex Hynes is an Emergency Veterinarian and Director at Animal Emergency Services, with clinics throughout Queensland. As well as being a busy Veterinarian, she is also a Mum, Director and Fitness Ambassador.

Dr Alex came to Four Drunk Parrots with a wish:

  • She knew that there are not many vets out there in the media who have spent the years living and breathing the kind of veterinary work she has done at Animal Emergency Service. Being on the ‘frontline’, she knew she had a message she wanted to share.
  • She wanted to show the teamwork and dedication that is required to be an emergency veterinarian, and both share and acknowledge this with other vets, the general public and particularly pet owners.
  • She wanted to show vets and aspiring vets that you can have a tremendously full and gratifying work life while still enjoying a family, doing the things you love and furthering your education!

Four Drunk Parrots had the knowledge, the contacts, the systems and the experts to make her wish a reality!


How did we help


Three Step Approach

One: Four Drunk Parrots researched the vet, pet, and female lifestyle markets extensively, to understand what opportunities would be available to Alex — from the obvious to the not so obvious.

Two: We worked closely with Alex to understand her dynamic personality and what she was passionate about — this allowed us to strategically build a targeted media database.

Three: We evolved and aligned what Alex could offer seamlessly with the specific media outlet, ensuring it was always unique, informative, engaging, and timely.
