Public Relations

Businesses who turn talk into action earn trust. Summit Communication Brisbane create communications to follow meaningful actions, this way public relations catalyses growth.

The prime driver of Trust used to be a company’s competence. Simply, that it was good at what it did. Today, this effort represents only one-quarter of the race. The remaining three-quarter marathon is contingent on a company’s purpose, integrity and reliability.

We take a multi-stakeholder, inside-out communications approach with employees usually as our first priority. Followed by customers, shareholders, policymakers, government, potential customers, and the media who influence them.

Controlling the narrative is the ghost of public relations past. In our socially connected world, we favour broad community story development and validation.

This is why our communications are not transactional and one-way, but rather a conversation.

Listening, not telling. This gets you known for the right reasons and builds your relationships with the right people on mutuality and trust.

PR is the communication thread for equity building that’s meaningful, measurable and influential. It can build and protect your reputation; help you reach you goals faster and unveil new opportunity.
