SenateSHJ is an award-winning public relations consultancy with offices across New Zealand and Australia.

Our consultants hail from a wide range of professional backgrounds, offering deep expertise and insights into a range of sectors and specialties.

We understand that good reputations form the basis of good business. And we know that the best reputations are built by organisations that genuinely connect with the people who matter most.

We are public relations and communications consultants with experience spanning public, private and non-profit sectors, and industries as diverse as energy, telecommunications, healthcare, infrastructure, politics and the arts. Many of our team are former journalists and broadcasters.

Our work is award-winning, and our client-focused results have been acknowledged as among the best by the public relations bodies that lead this industry in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

In 2013, SenateSHJ was the fourth largest independent public relations consultancy in Australia according to The PR Report, a monthly newsletter for the public relations industry.  Just weeks earlier, the same report ranked SenateSHJ as the ninth largest public relations agency in Australia.

These rankings followed a string of awards, including the Public Relations Institute of Australia’s (PRIA) NSW Golden Target Award in community relations for its work with The Australian Medicines Industry, and four Gold Quill Awards by the International Association of Business Communicators.

Our consultants and partners have also been recognised by the industry. Auckland partner Julien Leys is a Fellow of the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand and Melbourne partner Angela Scaffidi is a Fellow of the Public Relations Institute of Australia.

SenateSHJ’s people are thought-leaders in their own right. A number of partners are published writers, and have been invited to present at public relations conferences around the world, on specialist topics from healthcare to social marketing.
