about us

Run Forrest is a boutique marketing and brand communications agency that works with clients boasting great food products, superb tipples, outstanding restaurants, must-do travel destinations and other choice lifestyle and tourism products.
We're based in Melbourne, Australia. 
We're quite fond of eating at great restaurants, sipping very tidy wine and enjoying our down time at stunning destinations. Life's too short to eat rubbish food, drink sub-standard wine and work with fools and so gratefully we subject ourselves to none of the above.

Our founder, Llawela Forrest, has over two decades experience in marketing, media and communications. As Marketing and Deputy Program Director at Channel Seven Melbourne she managed the channel's marketing, advertising, events, promotions and sponsorships. Llawela then worked with boutique agencies in a General Manager role managing brand strategy for clients from ASX listed beverage clients to fledgling artisan brands. Llawela was a scholar of the 2010 Melbourne Tourism Industry Leadership Program and a Director of the social enterprise, Shebeen.
