Hi – thanks for joining us. Due North is a full-service PR consultancy and editorial services provider based in New Zealand and this blog is our take on the exciting, dynamic and frequently quirky world of what we do.
We’re staffed and managed by communication pros with many years of experience in large public relations consultancies and leading media outlets. We’re passionate, professional communicators and we take great pride in delivering an increasingly rare combination of sound writing skills and first-rate communication consultancy and expertise.
We have extensive experience in building and protecting corporate and brand reputations, raising brand profiles, launching new products, entering new markets and building relationships between a varied array of organisations and their many different stakeholders.
Much of this experience has been with blue-chip organisations. But we’re also familiar with the day-to-day communication challenges facing small and medium-sized businesses. No matter who uses us, or how, they can be sure they’re getting large consultancy expertise for small agency fees.
Due North operates throughout New Zealand and across Australia, the Asia Pacific region and Europe, working with clients as far afield as Hong Kong, Paris, Zurich and Brussels.
Our services include public relations consultancy and programme delivery; issues management and crisis communication; media, writing and presentation training; and any type of writing or editorial support.
In short, we’re well placed to offer sound and balanced public relations counsel and to help establish effective communication between your organisation and the people important to your continued success and growth.
So thanks again for joining us in here. Generating a decent-sized readership is never easy so please feel free to share or link whatever you see here as widely as you like to help spread the word. Discussion is at the heart of any community so we’d love to get your feedback, too. Please feel free to let us know what you think. Heck, if you like it enough we might even ask you to contribute! In the meantime, happy reading…
