Very much the best PR agency that I have ever worked with. Ron and Anita were consistently proactive and service-driven. Projects within the attraction strategy were completed efficiently and stress-free and I’m looking forward to work with Wright Communications on future projects.

Wright Communications provided PR and marketing communications advice and support for the launch of a new, national digital radio communications network, ensuring the launch received excellent media coverage. Ron Murray worked assiduously over many months to assist us in getting to the launch point well-prepared, and his advice and assistance in respect of communications with all internal and external audiences, as well as the various network partners, was an important part of the launch’s success.
Logan Caulfield
Marketing Manager, CSE New Zealand
We love working with the team at Wright Communications because they really understand our business and our values. They have a strong focus on sustainability storytelling and have been able to integrate that approach into their consumer PR and influencer programmes.

At the more serious end of the business, Wright have demonstrated their experience and skills as they guided us through issues management and crisis preparedness.

Wright Communications provides creative, strategic guidance and gets the job done. Our media coverage has increased markedly since we began working with them in 2017, and the resulting feedback from our own partners and staff is excellent. We enjoy working with them and value their insights, humour and hard work.
Miranda Burdon

The strategic advice offered combined with a well-driven, well-organised PR effort delivered results well in excess of expectations. Wright exceeded all targets set in the communications space and contributed cohesively to the integrated team plan. For an external supplier to feel so connected with the internal team was in my view exceptional.
Sheryl Nichols
General Manager, Marketing and Communications, World Masters Games 2017
We approached Wright Communications to assist us in managing a possible media issue and their response was quick and professional and very helpful in the outcome. From that experience, we have called on the Wright’s team for a range of support around marketing communications material preparation in relation to our new financial services developments and a consumer product launch and have similarly been very pleased with the work they have done. We are impressed with their ability to quickly grasp our requirements and craft effective communications to meet them.
Jack Yin

The challenge for tourism operators at the moment is to future-proof their businesses. I’ve been impressed with Wright Communications’ strategic advice and ability to untap new marketing channels for my tourism business, which is essential as we move forward into unchartered territory. I feel very well supported by Megan and Jess and they have great connections with social media influencers and traditional media to promote my business to new customers. Highly recommend this service.

We appreciated the mahi from the Wright Communications team to get our materiality report completed in the required timeframe. We were impressed with the process and received excellent feedback from the presentation to our executive team.

Wright Communications have done a great job – from shaping up the successful launch of Toitū Tahua through to our campaign on the role of finance in the transition to a Net Zero economy. In addition to shaping the narrative, Wright secured excellent coverage of our COP26 Finance Day webinar and initiated a Stuff summer series. Sustainable finance isn’t an easy topic but the Wright team have invested personally in learning the space and they “get it”. They know how to shape and pitch stories and spokespeople to attract media attention. They are constantly coming up with ideas to strengthen our network and achieve our objectives. And they’re easy to get along with. Who doesn’t want a partner that is confident enough to challenge your ideas and connected enough to make them happen?
Jo Kelly
Chief Executive Officer, Toitū Tahua Centre for Sustainable Finance
“We are really happy with what you achieved and also with how lovely it was to deal with Wright Communications. Thank you so much. We would love to do more in the future with you.”

“I am very impressed by Wright Communications. They were super responsive and scalable, providing an experienced team of five people practically within hours of our call for assistance. The Wright team rapidly got to grips with our business and started making an impact. They meshed extremely well with our internal team building productive relationships that have been immensely helpful in reducing our reputation risks and improving our stakeholder and media communications. After six months Wright Communications is well established with Whakarongorau Aotearoa as valued public relations advisers and operators.”
