What if I have been sharing phone numbers?
Let’s address the Elephant in the room.
A lot of comms/media managers have inherited systems that see the personal contact details of their Talent (like athletes) circulated throughout the media.
The AFL’s Port Adelaide Power used to operate that way. They don’t now. Their advice?
“Rip the band aid off!”
Port Adelaide Power
“Once I introduced Blinder to the Port Adelaide Football Club, our internal stakeholders - I'm thinking the board, senior executive, coaches and players - loved what we were doing. What they really appreciated was the investment in player care.”
Daniel Norton has visibility of what's going on in all Port Adelaide’s remote interviews, without needing to be part of them.

“Using Blinder is more reliable than our old ways and it gives everyone confidence. There’s certainty of when the interview will happen. There’s direct access. And then the interview happens. That process builds a lot of trust."
Juli Clausen and her NZP media team make their spokespeople more accessible and get more of their voice out.
“We do all media calls for our club through Blinder now. We have a full record of what’s going on and it’s saving everyone time. The athletes prefer it. The comms teams prefers it. And the media have no qualms once they use Blinder because it works.”
Luke Morfesse manages remote interviews in 25% of the time he used to.
“When I first heard about Blinder, I wanted to know more. How could a journalist call an artist directly - on their personal mobile - without having their number? I’ve been using the system for years now. Having a recording was a big hook for me. And booking a call through Blinder is a fun experience which takes seconds.”
Frank Varrasso believes Blinder is the easiest and most carefree way to arrange media calls.
