“Tory is an inspiration
and a motivator.”

DR. KATRINA WARREN, Media Vet

About.

As one of Australia’s most powerful publicists, Tory Archbold is passionate about sharing her learnings and knowledge to mentor and empower others. It is this passion that has led Tory to launch Powerful Steps – a platform designed to inspire, encourage and guide women through the different challenges of life, launching their own business and building a successful brand.

TORSTAR became the first Australian PR and communications agency to launch five international high-street retailers in the Australian market: Zara, Topshop, Next, Shopbop and Forever 21. In 2011, TORSTAR was the driving force behind the most successful global launch for the world’s number one retail brand, Zara. More than 22,000 people walked through the doors at the store event in Sydney with stock almost selling out in just 80 seconds.

But perhaps what is most impressive are the challenges that Tory has overcome out of the spotlight. Behind the glamorous closed doors of TORSTAR, Tory is mum to daughter, Bella. In 2013, her appendix burst and she spent five days on life support after contracting septicemia.

Afterwards, the doctor informed Tory that she was lucky to be alive and gave her a six-month recovery period. The near death experience forced Tory to re-evaluate her life and her priorities. She downsized her agency to focus on a handful of key clients and is now determined to pass on her lessons through motivating workshops and public speaking. Her enthralling message of self-belief, resilience and overcoming adversity provides the framework those who want to achieve their dreams – whatever they may be.

Tory has continued to push boundaries in the ever-changing landscape of public relations and communications, thinking outside of the box to evolve and transform her successful agency, TORSTAR, into a dynamic powerhouse.

Her entrepreneurial spirit, coupled with an unrivalled and intimate understanding of Australian and international retail markets, has seen Tory build a formidable reputation. She has forged strong relationships with key media players and built a global network of retail contacts, working alongside CEOs, entrepreneurs, board directors and industry influencers. Through her extraordinary storytelling ability, Tory has landed front covers in mainstream business and consumer press on behalf of her client portfolio, which includes global brands, Victoria’s Secret, FLOWER Beauty by Drew Barrymore, Adidas, Seafolly and Steve Madden.

“Every single woman I know can learn something from Tory’s story. She’s been through hell, but she never gave up. She just got stronger. And because of that, she is a powerhouse.”
