“If direct to consumer consulting was a Formula 1 race then Trish Barry and the Mastermind team are Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes – way out in front of the rest. We have worked with Trish for over a decade and as a 150 year old brand it is vitally important for us to remain relevant in the ever changing digital environment. Mastermind understand our brand and longevity, and help deliver a social media platform that showcases our treasured history to a new age world. Along with analytical reporting, this provides us with a critical insight in to our business and allows us to make better informed decisions and ultimately become more competitive in the marketplace.”

When establishing my own wine brand in 2014, I could think of no better person than Trish and her team to assist me with everything a new wine business needs. She helped me clarify my goals and direction and how I planned to get there. She wrote the brief on packaging for my designers and assisted me throughout the process and final design selection. She sourced the best website solution for my business and helped me put the content together. I receive nothing but constant praise for my packaging design and website. Put simply, without Trish I’m not sure that Billy Button would have got off the ground – it certainly wouldn’t be as successful as it has been without her, nor achieved so much in such a short timeframe. I couldn’t recommend anybody more.

"For over 8 years, we have worked closely with Trish and the Mastermind team to develop, plan and execute our marketing strategies with a strong focus on Direct-to-Consumer marketing, an area in which we have achieved significant growth. Trish’s expertise, innovation and passion is evident in all that she does, and the Scarborough team and family are incredibly grateful for the continuous support and guidance offered by Trish and the Mastermind team."

“Holm Oak has been using the services of Mastermind Consulting for over 4 years now. We realised that digital communication and marketing was an increasingly important aspect of our business, but as a very small wine business we didn't have the relevant skills to navigate the the digital marketing world. We started off with one project in mind, but over time Mastermind have taken over all of our digital marketing (and more) including, EDMs, social media, google advertising and website development and evolution. Every step of the way Trish and her team have worked with us to workshop new ideas, create strategies and implement them, whilst mentoring and pushing me with my own marketing efforts. I know that once we have discussed different programs and strategies actions will be created, budgeted and implemented with in the allocated time frame and on budget. What I particularly love above Mastermind is that it's a one stop shop - from copy writing, content creation, graphic design digital advertising or creating briefs for complementary freelancers; they can, and do, do it all and do it well. I have a whole agency for less than the price of a marketing manager, and the results have been fantastic.”

“I have worked with Trish for over nine years while she was at Southcorp Wines (Foster's) and then at Mastermind Consulting. All of us at The Collective find her to be a very professional, insightful and organised marketer. She has significant wine experience, which is incredibly valuable to both her wine clients as well as to ourselves. And above all, she's a delight to work with!”

“It’s such a relief to have found Trish and the Mastermind Consulting team to assist with the marketing of our winery. Trish and her team have great marketing experience and it’s reassuring to have them on board. In addition to their knowledge, Trish and her team are a pleasure to work with breaking any marketing problem we have down into achievable steps. I look forward to many years of working with Mastermind Consulting.”

“Mastermind Consulting, headed up by the amazingly talented and hard-working Trish Barry, is the real deal if you demand the best outcomes for your brand. We have been working with Trish and her team for over three years now, and in that time, Mastermind has completely revamped and successfully relaunched Plantagent’s Omrah range, developed and successfully launched our exciting Juxtapose label, totally reviewed our direct marketing sales model, including development of our new website, and developed an effective social media marketing campaign. As well as all this, Trish helps with the creation of presentations for management, the board, distributors and customers that are insightful, powerful and concise. She has also launched trade marketing campaigns that deliver all objectives and actually work! Trish and her team do everything possible to deliver great results, on time and within budget, but most importantly, they treat your brand like it’s their own!”

"I have had the pleasure and privilege to work with Trish and her team at Mastermind Consulting. The knowledge this company has around social media marketing (specifically Facebook) is mind blowing. I had a major issue one Thursday afternoon (5.30pm!). I phoned Trish on her mobile and she took the time to walk me through how to rectify my error and was so patient and calm (all the while I was about to have heart failure at what I had just uploaded to my business’s Facebook page accidentally). The issue was fixed shortly after our chat."
Dale Simpson
"We have worked with Trish on a number of occasions to assist us with our social media marketing, and she has certainly helped us achieve the results we wanted and much more. Trish is such an expert in her field and a pleasure to work with. She is extremely professional, honest and very reliable."
Kim Read
"Trish Barry helped us navigate the social media scene back in 2009, particularly when we decided to run the Rosé Revolution campaign – an awareness campaign for dry, pale rosé. We committed to this promotion for three years. Trish was a very important cog in the wheel to make it all happen, and made it work well for all concerned - wineries, retailers, restaurateurs and consumers. We were delighted with the results and why wouldn't we? Our sales of rosé continue to go through the roof, selling out each year."
Leanne De Bortoli
"I have had the pleasure of working with Trish and her team from Mastermind Consulting for over 12 months. My photography business has seen instant results through her marketing strategies and coaching. Trish has been instrumental in developing ideas for our recent project for charity where we raised $10,000 for Miracle Babies Foundation. Trish is an excellent communicator, extremely organised, reliable, and expresses her ideas with clarity and warmth, which is what I value most. I would highly recommend Mastermind Consulting and hope to work alongside Trish and her team for many years to come."

"Mastermind are fantastic!! I am now up to date with liaising with my direct customers, and developing great marketing ideas and concepts. These areas are certainly not my strong point. They are a godsend!!"
