SAMMPress is an online publication born out of an intense desire to facilitate discourse, stimulate debate and spread intelligent ideas about management, marketing and culture.

We’re a team of editors, writers and designers united by a religious devotion to answer the questions that nobody asks, and to ask the questions that inspire the next generation of leaders and innovators. It is this obsession that binds us. We invite all our readers to get involved and discover with us. You can always get in touch by emailing communications@unimelbsamm.com or messaging us on Facebook. We love talking to our readers and we’re always looking for new contributors.


Kavindra Iddawela, Director of Communications & SAMMPress – SAMM


Kavi is a first-year Master’s student and an aspiring digital communications strategist who’s ridden the train, gotten off the rails, and lost her thoughts along the way. She also borrowed that line from Lemony Snicket. She loves everything digital but has a soft spot for a good hardcover novel. She has worked in content management, dabbles in freelance writing, and you can see her counting calories and lifting heavy every other day at the gym. Always with a smile, you’ll get to know her as the gal you hear before you see!
