Hello and Welcome. We are AdMarketing Australia.
My name is Lars Halvorsen.
AdMarketing Australia is a specialist Creative Marketing and Advertising Company.
We can help with every aspect of your marketing including Social Media Management.
Lars is his real name (the name on his passport and driver’s license) and his shortened adopted “Australian” name of Les Hall has in effect become a brand that is a short easier to remember (and spell) name.
About Me – I was born and raised by Scandinavian parents (Father’s family from Norway and Mother’s family from Denmark) in Far North Queensland and upon leaving school commenced a career in the media. Firstly as a journalist with my home town newspaper.
From there, I moved to Radio (Announcer/Copywriter/Producer/Director/Sound Engineer) and Television (Writer/Producer/Director) working all over Australia and also in the United States and Canada.
My love for creative advertising saw me start his first advertising agency at age 24, and after returning to study – Business, Marketing and Cinematography – this additional knowledge helped me grow, and develop (and sell) successful advertising agencies.
I have been fortunate to have travelled the world extensively (my passion and hobby is travel and learning) and I have also lived and worked in the United States and Canada where I am also recognised by the Canadian and US Governments as a Foreign Expert on Marketing.
The AdMarketing Australia “Edge” is creative branding. The evidence is 32 National and International Awards for Creative Excellence and Marketing Effectiveness.
