About Us

Well-told stories and connection with communities of ideas and place add immense value to any venture. Understanding the audience is key to communicating with it. Our reason for being is to enable connections by helping people present their stories to their chosen communities, no matter what the channel.

We are deeply connected with our local place – Queenstown and Wanaka, and with communities of like minds across the country. We are committed to sharing clients’ stories and reaching their audiences with understanding, tenacity, exceptional standards, responsiveness, integrity and trust.

We understand the power of good public relations and provide client support in good times and bad. This ranges from happy discussions about new projects to harnessing the power of persuasion through well-articulated argument when new ideas need to be presented. It includes planning and action to minimise reputational damage when things go wrong.

We have amassed an exceptional set of skills to deliver our commitments and promises.

Based in Queenstown and Wanaka, New Zealand, Scope Media is a full-service communications agency. We’re skilled professionals who know and understand both how traditional media operates and the intricacies and sensitivities of social and digital media. We’re old enough to have years of experience in journalism and PR, yet young enough to understand the changing tech world. As a result, we have enviable national and international media networks and handle digital media like natives. We provide communications services that support business objectives – tailored to the sweet spot where audience meets story, while always remaining disaster-ready.

Scope Media is a member of the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand.
