Our Story

Kia ora koutou

We opened our doors in Christchurch in 1996. Since then we’ve humbly grown into a national communications agency, with offices in both the North and South Islands. We genuinely live or work in every region in New Zealand.

Proudly grass-roots 

At heart we’re a grass-roots agency working across New Zealand with businesses large and small. Over the years we’ve steadily built teams of 50 in Christchurch and 26 in Auckland to best serve our clients wherever they are. 

Integrated collaboration 

Truly full service, we have an unparalleled breadth of skills and specialist expertise. We’re continuously innovating and collaborating to deliver complete solutions tailored to the unique needs of everyone we work with. 

Personal touch 

We never lose sight of the value of your investment. We pride ourselves on having a close knit team of senior leaders working alongside every client to provide personal account management and proactive team support. 

Our people 

Our enduring success can be attributed to our most important asset - our people. We’re a diverse mix of home-grown talent peppered with international flare. Down to earth, approachable and always available, without exception we build strong relationships and work tirelessly to be valued partners and trust advisors in growth. 



Our Purpose


Our purpose is to help ambitious people and businesses become tomorrow’s market leaders. 

Because when our clients succeed, New Zealand wins.

Straight Talking

We openly share advice and expertise, don’t hide from problems or behind jargon. 


Our tauparapara, written for Harvey Cameron in 2020 by Lyttleton poet Ben Brown, speaks to the twin hulled waka – a metaphor for the guiding hand we extend to clients. Together we are bound by the kīato, the crosspiece between the hulls. This symbolises the different perspectives and hulls of knowledge from which our unique kaupapa is forged.

Voyaging is a journey. The partnership we form with clients, through the symbol of the twin hulled waka, while offering stability and security will also provide independence and manoeuvrability in the exploration of new possibilities.

Mā tātou e whakapae ki uta - to drive ashore, to ensure, to build, with truth and integrity, a solution befitting the journey.

He waka hourua – a twin hulled waka

Anei he waka hourua

Koia ra te ata a Whitireia 

i te ahua o nga tangere

Kua rere enei piko mārire

Kei runga i te tai ope 

Kei mua I te hau pūkeke 

i whakapae ki uta



Whakapūmau tonu ake

Here, a twin hulled waka 
The new moon reflects
In the shape of the hulls 
These graceful arcs carried 
on a forceful tide
before an indomitable wind 
To drive upon the shore
To prepare
To ensure
To confirm and make permanent
