"There is nobody in Perth with a better understanding of television, news and production standards than Sandra.
Sandra is one of Australia’s most experienced television producers who has helped 7NEWS develop new programmes and documentaries like Flashpoint. She is a talent whisperer who can visualise concepts and ideas like no other person I’ve worked with, and deliver them to global standards.

She is a no nonsense, roll your sleeves up, and get on with the job, kind of a producer. Unstoppable."

Ray Kuka

News Director- Seven Perth

"Having dealt with Sandra Di Girolamo for many years I was aware of the sharp news sense and innate story-telling ability that has made her one of Australia’s leading journalist-producers. So when it came to turning clients of The PR Collaborative into awesome media talent, I knew Sandra was the secret weapon we needed. Her understanding of what it takes to be topical and relevant, combined with practical tips and techniques for achieving messaging cut-through has given our clients from a variety of business and non-profit organisations a real media edge. "

Carla Shearman

Managing Director - PR Collaborative

"We all really enjoyed the session and felt very energised coming out of it. I think you managed to turn a bunch of scaredy-cats into spokespeople.

We look forward to getting the call up to be on the Sunrise couch soon ."

"The media training provided by ThinkBox has given our team members the confidence and skills to tell our stories in meaningful ways that are attractive to news outlets. The training is contemporary and relevant with plenty of opportunities to practice skills as you go.

"Having been asked to make a presentation I was pointed in ThinkBox's direction for help. Within the first 15 minutes I felt completely comfortable that I was in the right place. They helped work through my content and coached my presenting skills for best delivery. It was a really good experience and I'm looking forward to working with Think Box again."

Patricia Cavalcanti


"Melissa and Sandra from ThinkBox worked with the Perth College Leadership Team and Council to further develop our media communication skills. The work was informative and engaging with hands-on training and practice. All questions were welcome and the ThinkBox Team put everyone at ease. Interacting with the media is not natural for everyone, however all members of the team surfaced from this training more confident and with a better understanding of the important elements of effective media communication. We would highly recommend this training to other organisations looking to empower team members in media communications. "

"Our team learnt so much from Sandra in regards to preparing for media interviews and ensuring we are controlling the narrative and getting our key messages across. We loved the preparation worksheets as well as being able to practice in front of the camera and then watching the interviews back to see how we can do better. Thanks so much ThinkBox Media for all of your help. "
