IrrigationNZ has been a client of Silvereye communications for over 5 years and during this time their expertise and advice has played a significant role in lifting our media profile and political impact. IrrigationNZ is now a ‘Go-To’ organisation for media comment around rural water issues and has also established effective relationships with all political parties. Irrigators voluntarily pay our annual membership fees as they know their voices will be heard in Wellington.

Silvereye’s extensive knowledge of the primary sector has been extremely valuable in achieving this. They were instrumental to the successful ‘stop the water-tax’ campaign in the lead up to the election – which saved the irrigation industry $80 million annually. Silvereye helped us prepare media statements, develop key messages for television and radio interviews alongside run an extremely effective social media campaign that had a huge reach.

If your organisation is wanting to build their media profile or more effectively engage with government I’d highly recommend using Silvereye – their knowledgeable staff always go that extra mile to ensure their client’s objectives are met.

Andrew Curtis, CEO, Irrigation New Zealand

I am seriously impressed with your ability to capture this nuanced space so skilfully, thank you.

NERI’s Energy Research Strategy was an important one-off major production for the Institute, and we were looking for a high quality design.  This Silvereye delivered with a minimum of fuss. Greatly appreciated with everything else that was going on around its launch.
