For over 20 years, the Get Smart Group has been kitting out brands with innovative, unique branded products from across the globe.
And we love what we do.
We can take your business to the next level
Beginning in the year 2000, Get Smart Promo has grown (and grown!) from humble beginnings to become a 100% Aussie-owned promo goods superhero – one that has worked with hundreds – no, thousands – of government sectors, corporate businesses and not-for-profits across Australia, New Zealand and beyond.
During our two+ decades of promo experience, our vision and goals haven’t strayed. Our quest is to provide our clients with the widest selection of innovative, useful and creative goods from the most reliable and sustainable providers while continuing to serve you in every way we can.
Our Team Culture, Values and Attitudes
BRING IT ON
We love nothing more than a challenge
NO LIES, NO BULL
We shoot straight and tell it like it is
WE GIVE A DAMN
We care about your brand as much as our own
QUIRKY BY NATURE
We’re pioneering, free-thinking and quirky
Everyone talks about culture, but what does it really mean? Like, really, really mean? For us, our culture is about how we show up every day, how we behave every day, and how we work with you, every day.
When it comes to our team – we’re selective, protective, and proud. After all, it’s our people (and their clever brains) who genuinely set us apart. We’re a free-thinking creative bunch who relish a challenge. We shoot straight. We tell it like it is – and we have a commitment to deliver each and every time.
Look, we might be biased, but we think (know) you’ll love working with the team here. You’ll have fun, be inspired, excited, and you’ll always know what’s going on!
When we put all of this into action – magical merch-based things happen. You’re happy, we’re happy, your customers are so happy they’ve broken out into the happiest hokey-pokey you’ve ever seen, and you know what? That’s what it’s all about.
As you can see, every day we strive to live and work by four main values. Everything we do stems from these simple concepts.
What does this mean for you? Well, you’re in luck!
We’ll bring awesome ideas and products to boot!
Our team is passionate, innovative and we LOVE what we do. We act as an extension of your marketing team, your promotional arms and legs if you will, to help you find the ideal merchandise to connect with your target customers.
We’ll walk 500 miles… and then 500 more
We’re there with you every step of the way – because your mission is our mission, too. Put it there, partner!
We’ll serve up some sustainable options
We all want to do our bit for the environment, and Get Smart is no different. Sustainability is high on our agenda, and we are very selective about the manufacturers we use and the products we supply.
If you’re in trouble in Gotham City, you call the Caped Crusader. If you need promotional goods, you call Get Smart!
Our team is comprised of genuinely gifted minds.
As one of the founding partners, creating the Get Smart Promo Group is one of my greatest achievements. Our wonderful team and amazing clients have been supporting our success since day one and many of them are still with us.
I’m very proud of the fact I know every member of our team will go above and beyond to make sure your merchandise not only meets expectations but exceeds expectations. We are a passionate bunch that love what we do.
I grew up in Sydney and have been involved in marketing and sales, starting in my family’s business since I was a young age. I’ve had the good fortune in working in some amazing companies and travelled the world in those roles, broadening my horizons and expanding my work/life experiences. I moved to beautiful Port Stephens to be closer to family and have never looked back. I work with the most amazing team of passionate people and it’s a pleasure to come to work each day, and better still no one day is the same! My passions are gourmet cooking and enjoying time with family and friends, as well as my beautiful Black Labrador and Alexandrine Parrot, Mango.
Looking after everything I.T for around 14 years, I have had the privilege of being part of the growth and success of the Get Smart journey. I love creating new tools and solutions for our clients during the week and renovating the house on weekends. I am also a bit of a campfire strummer on the guitar. Born in the UK and now a proud Aussie!
Hi, I graduated from The University of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Visual Communication – Graphic Design. I started with Get Smart Promo in 2010. With over 10 years’ experience in the promotional products industry I have gained a wealth of knowledge and skills to help my team produce amazing product solutions for our clients. I particularly enjoy designing customised products, like lapel pins and caps. I am known to take a pretty long holiday every couple of years. I’ve travelled to the UK, Europe, America and China, and have many more plans to explore the rest of the world. I am a massive television and movie buff, enjoy researching British Royal History (I have traced my heritage back to Mary Queen of Scots!), and love spending time in my garden.
My name is Leesa Collins and I have just realised from looking for a photo, for this bio, that I love taking photos. Family is a big part of my life, having two beautiful ,adult daughters and a husband that keeps me very busy. I love celebrating their achievements with them all excelling at their own personal and professional lives. Being apart of the Get Smart team for almost 10 years now has enabled me to fulfill my passion of helping people.
Originally from Sydney & after a few stints in the UK, now live in beautiful Port Stephens with partner of over 20 years, Dave, our two amazing children (one of each) & two cheeky black Labs (one of each)! I’m a massive Bruce Springsteen fan, love a cook-up with friends & family, & also like to enjoy a glass (or two) of local vino. Have loved being part of this awesome team from around 2010.
My name is Gina and I have been with the Get Smart Group since 2016 as an Account Manager and Promotions Consultant. I have worked largely in Sales, Customer Service and Promotional Events throughout my career and have a real love of people and the fast pace of our industry. I am lucky enough to have lived in the beautiful Port Stephens area for 10 years now, bringing up my children surrounded by spectacular beaches and a wonderful lifestyle. I love the outdoors including camping and fishing and most sports but mainly Rugby league, cricket and the V8’s however my passion lies with music. I spend a lot of my weekends, now the kids are older, at live music venues, festivals and living life to the full!
Hi, I am part of the Production/Dispatch Team. I manage the warehouse and look after online orders, as well as quality checking stock and keeping track of jobs to ensure they are delivered to our customers on time. I have extensive experience in all aspects of administration, and am proud to have received a “Pride in Workmanship” award. I love swimming, walking, bike riding and spending time with my son down at the beach.
Growing up as a city girl in Sydney, I studied fashion design and went on to work for many years at a large luxury fashion house before taking the plunge and moving to our little paradise for a sea change. My weekends are usually spent by one of our many beautiful beaches with my little family, enjoying the slower lifestyle… I love to travel and hope to tick off many more places on my ‘to do’ list. My favourite times are always spent with friends and family and I feel very lucky to be surrounded by amazing people in both my personal and work worlds
