Who we are
We are a team of experienced and talented communications professionals who understand the realities of business. We are trusted advisers to major businesses, central and local government and the not-for-profit sector.
Sustainability is a pressing issue for citizens, investors and stakeholders today, and is at the core of what we do. Established by Nikki Wright in 2006, Wright Communications has developed our sustainability expertise to keep pace with the changing business environment. Our team are all fluent in corporate responsibility and sustainability issues.
Nikki Wright deals personally with every client, and each consultant enjoys building valued client relationships.
Pro bono support
As part of our commitment to social responsibility, we form long-term relationships with charities whose goals particularly align with our values, including Environmental Choice New Zealand, Presbyterian Support Northern and Surf Lifesaving Northern Region. We help raise awareness of the important issues they address and support them with a mix of pro-bono and reduced-cost services.
We come to work every day to help our clients ‘do the right thing’. We believe in the power of public relations to contribute to a more sustainable Aotearoa by achieving a balance between the intentions of the organisations we represent and the legitimate concerns of their stakeholders.
We accomplish this by providing a broad suite of corporate communications and marketing communications services, including stakeholder engagement, communications strategy and planning, internal communications and change management, and issues and crisis management service offerings.
We seek to do significant work that will enhance our society and our environment. We always aim to innovate with our service offerings and stay at the leading edge of best practice.
Leading New Zealand organisations choose us for our experienced multi-disciplinary consulting team and our commitment to a high standard of professionalism. We have been recognised by our peers as one of the best agencies in New Zealand.
Our agency is based on our core values of Genuine connections, Delivering exciting work, Having each other’s back and Doing the right thing, coupled with an unwavering commitment to sustainability. These values guide our behavior and thinking. Our culture sets us apart and opens the door for a diverse range of work and a happy team.
We offer billing options to suit your needs, including a monthly retainer, set project fees or the hours spent on a project.
Sustainability reports provide evidence that supports your commitment to ‘doing the right thing’. We have been producing sustainability reports for our clients since 2007 and are well-versed in the GRI and <IR> frameworks.
We publish our own Sustainability Report in December.
