If it’s worth doing, do it well

M&A has a strong service ethic. Here is a sample of our service lines

The following is but a sample of the communication service lines our passionate team delivers. Behind each of these sits a commitment to our core value: being an ethical business motivated to work with leading brands, delivering great results.

Communication Counsel

We provide trusted counsel to clients – typically executives and boards – to protect and enhance your organisational reputation.

M&A works with executive teams to develop communication strategies aligned with the organisation’s commercial objectives, based on simplicity, clarity and contextually aware stakeholder and media engagement.

Message Development and Media Training

Trust is built on consistent, clear communication over time. Strong, purposeful messages better persuade and influence your audience.

M&A will tailor training packages designed to equip your key spokespeople, presenters or frontline staff to more effectively engage an audience.

Our media training and message development programs can be tailored for CEOs and senior executives, right through to frontline teams. We aim to help you create a unique voice, build engagement and, naturally, drive better business outcomes.

Media Relations

Strong and mutually respectful media relationships allow us to increase awareness of our client’s unique voice with their chosen audience.

We measure effectiveness across the spectrum of traditional, digital and social media with best-in-class media monitoring and analytical tools. Real-time knowledge informs strategy and measures success.

Investor Relations

M&A has a highly credible track record of support to publicly listed or soon-to-be listed organisations.

Whether raising capital or initiating other investor relations programmes, the counsel and practical support of M&A has helped drive successful client outcomes.

At our heart is strategy-based investor relations skill, coupled with practical support to best influence a full range of stakeholders.

Crisis Communication

A crisis rarely starts out as a crisis. It invariably begins as an issue. Managing issues before they become a crisis is part art form, part science and a whole lot of hard work, often under the pressure of deadlines.

We offer expert counsel to help our clients identify, plan for and respond to sensitive situations. We work with the executive team to rebuild rapport with affected stakeholders with clear and concise messages.

Reputation Management

At our heart, we guide high quality, ethical storytelling on behalf of clients through multi-channel communication.

We create a communication framework guided by clear consistent messaging to elevate the organisation’s brand, people, product or thought leading position.
