About us


Our purpose is simple

To make a positive difference for our clients, our partners, our friends, and yes – our families

 

A small team of A+ players can run circles around a giant team of B & C players
— Steve Jobs

EXPERIENCED

Even though a small team, we have over a hundred years combined experience in media, advertising, digital, direct, marketing, business strategy, and governance.

We believe this makes us New Zealand's most experienced and well-rounded communications team.

PASSIONATE

Whether for one project or an ongoing business relationship, our clients are part of our extended family.

We live and breathe our clients' businesses. We are proactive and always alert to things that may impact upon them.

We care, deeply. Because 'good enough' isn't. 

CURIOUS

We wake up each day wondering what 's new, and what has changed since yesterday.

We don't have all the answers, but will usually know where to find out, and if we can't, we are not afraid to ask.

Aware

With experience comes self awareness.

Our egos are well under control, and we enjoy working collaboratively with our clients and other marketing partners.

NO IVORY TOWERS

We choose to work in our clients business, because this is where we are the happiest and the most effective.

This means you get senior level people applying themselves to your business at all times.

A FAMILY

Our 'family' is made up of people that know, like, trust and respect each other - personally and professionally.

We share similar values. We care - about each other, our families, and our clients.
