OUR STORY

Over the past 12 years we have defied the traditional publishing mould, producing over 400 custom books for clients such as Lorna Jane, Toby’s Estate, Contiki and Commbank. Now it is time to do the same with magazines. Collective Hub is a monthly lifestyle magazine that brings together entrepreneurial and creative minds from across the globe. True to our name, we are a collection of game changers, rule breakers, thought leaders and style makers with a common appetite for challenging the status quo. If you’re looking to catch up with us, we can be found in 37 countries worldwide – from the humid streets of Turkey to the Fjords of Norway, Collective Hub is a universal movement. Through personal stories, in-depth interviews, investigative features and practical tips, Collective Hub aims to inspire and inform. Whether you are looking for a boost of creativity, business advice from industry professionals or a friendly pep talk, this publication is your guide to making an impact in this world.

 

OUR FOUNDER & DREAMER

Founder/Editor-In-Chief Lisa Messenger started her business life in sponsorship and events, brokering international deals for the likes of The Wiggles, Barry Humphries and Cirque du Soleil, before she expanded to PR (managing her own firm) and book publishing (where her company produced more than 400 books for others with a disruptive new approach). In 2013, with a strong sense of purpose and her entrepreneurial spirit firing, she launched Collective Hub. Under her leadership, it has grown rapidly into a multi-media brand to more than 30 countries, has defied the odds of the print magazine industry and along the way, has created a community of like-minded, driven, talented and inspired human beings. As Uber Australia General Manager David Rohrsheim says, Lisa is… “A powerful combination to make the impossible happen”.

WE ARE A FAMILY

More than just a print magazine, the Collective Hub community is engaged across a number of platforms that echo the same philosophies found within its lovingly put together pages. We are reaching out to our readers wherever they may be in the world – hostel hopping in Tokyo, finding themselves in San Francisco, or reclining pajama-style in Sydney – we’ll be there to laugh, cry and indulge in ice cream with. Through social media, regular events, brand collaborations, e-commerce, strategic partnerships and our ambassador program, Collective Hub is about continuing the conversation beyond our pages – bringing the magazine to life through our remarkable readers. Our website features content that’s available to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Whether you are looking for brand new stories, extended Q&As and behind the scenes snippets from the mag – or tips, image galleries and short videos, collectivehub.com is your one-stop shop. Collective Hub has also curated a series of national reader events, joined forces with creative powerhouse such as Sydney Film Festival, SXSW and Semi Permanent and collaborated with a variety of brands to craft one of a kind products available in our online store.

 

EDITORIAL MISSION

Since Collective Hub burst onto the scene in 2013, we have become the reigning authority on creative entrepreneurs “doing it for themselves” (thanks Eurythmics, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves). We are a publication for the modern day with a fresh perspective on the issues that matter – business, tech, social change, design and travel to name a few. With an original look, thoughtful design and distinctive editorial voice, Collective Hub is inspiring a community of proactive and engaged thinkers.

Led by Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Lisa Messenger, Collective Hub will continue to deliver comprehensive content with a refreshingly positive outlook that is uniquely us. Currently available in 37 countries, you never know where we might pop up next!
