The smarts and thinking of a modern corporate consultancy, with insight into what makes ordinary New Zealanders tick.

We help organisations persuade audiences in every part of New Zealand.

People insight

Our professional role is to understand the people who are important to your business. What is motivating them? How can you make them understand? We are your independent and objective insight to these audiences.

Communication strategy

We work out why you are talking to others, what you want them to do or think, and how you will get them to do it. Our strategies are clever, succinct, and practical. They succeed. 

Public relations

We are proud of the disciplines of good PR; communication, psychology, sociology, and science. We craft messages, design activities, and create original ideas that give you the best chance of success.

Government relations

25 years of political savvy is at your service. Our staff have worked with Prime Ministers, Ministers and MPs. Our staff have helped companies win some of the most high profile political battles in recent memory.

Media relations

Our team are some of New Zealand’s most adept media practitioners who’ve managed public profiles for public and private sector organisations, large and small. We have all the tools of the trade to present your case forcefully.

Public issues and crises

Your sensitive, high profile and complex challenges are safe in our hands. We think ahead, to play out all the possibilities and chart a route through the public and private minefield. All our knowledge and experience is on your side.

Social media

Digital channels are part of our DNA. We bring PR disciplines to bear on the new era. It’s the same audience, but the rules are a little different. We know how you can best keep control of your reputation.

Corporate advocacy

It's tougher than ever to be in business - to know what to do in the face of dissent, controversy, activists and disharmony. Organisations and business sectors lose public and political battles because they do not advocate their case with sufficient passion, purpose and clear evidence.



“Blackland got us in front of key people, and the media coverage ensured our name and message was seen very widely.  It seemed like almost everyone had heard about it, and that stirred up valuable interest in our work.”
