Although digital and social media are new(ish) the reliance on compelling content and great story telling hasn’t. As professional journalists and copy writers – we know that content is KING (or QUEEN).  Your content needs to be engaging, compelling, exciting, informative, imaginative while at the same time SIMPLE. That’s our expertise – to bring your brand and business to life using a wide range of communication and marketing tools.

We have an experienced and well connected team of PR, marketing and communications specialists, designers, web developers and videographers at the ready. We are the ‘go to’ in establishing new businesses as well as assisting businesses in capital raise and new business opportunities.

Lastly – we’re LOYAL & LOCAL. Over the years we have supported many local not for profit organisations. We’re proud to be involved with the likes of the Hawke’s Bay Basketball Academy (developing youth), The Jarrod Cunningham Youth Sport Trust, Sport Hawke’s Bay, Hawke’s Bay Rugby among many others.
