Rhiannon Veness of Rhixseven Communication is making her mark in the world of media and communication, continuously ticking off items on her career list.
Since its inception over 10 years ago, the Veness business has grown and evolved, now with multiple long-term clients.
Veness is also gaining traction in the world of motorsport, volunteering for the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers, as well as working with the Australian Auto-Sport Alliance and the Australian Motor Racing Series.
Veness has a background in journalism and content marketing, but recently had an “unforgettable” experience at Winton Motor Raceway, as a pit lane reporter during the AMRS round in June.
“Kylie (King) needed someone to replace her rather at the last minute, and she knows my love of motorsport, so she called me and asked if I wanted to do it,” Veness said. .
“I knew a lot about what was going on, I helped the AMRS guys with social media a few years ago, so it was a really good opportunity to take on a different role.
“It was so much fun, and I’d love to do more if the opportunity arose.”
Veness’s company offers a wide range of services, including photography, social media management, copywriting and SEO for websites and landing pages (search engine optimization), and they also maintain their website up to date with blog posts and all the photography she’s recently taken.
Her blog ‘Rhi Says’ provides insightful insights into personal development topics, as well as thoughts on the motorsport rounds she attends and helps.
Her company name is a pun, as Veness has owned an RX-7 since she was just 10 years old. It’s been a social media tag for many years, and she decided to make it the cover of her business.
“I’ve been using it for so long, it represents me so well, and back when I was in college, my company just had to have a little extra money on the side, and just do some freelance work here and there with people I met through other jobs.
“Probably a little over 12 months ago I decided to focus more on that because over the last four or five years I’ve done a lot of one-off things with motorsport and Supercars too.
“Most of my work at the moment is not motorsport, but that’s definitely the direction I want to go.”
One of the biggest moments of Veness’ career was live-tweeting the Bathurst 12 Hour race from the official Twitter in 2018.
It wasn’t his first experience working media in the Bathurst 12 Hours, however, in 2016 and 2017 with editorial content and press conferences throughout the weekend.
Veness is looking to broaden his career to be more motorsport-based, enjoying his work there the most.
