Acorn PR

We founded Acorn PR in 2018 after years of helping some of New Zealand’s most recognised public figures, government organisations, industry groups and not-for-profits communicate effectively.

Acorn PR is about making communications and stakeholder relations advice and support accessible, affordable and highly practical. If you’re after people who are prepared to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, you’ve come to the right place.

How we work

We let our work speak for itself. We operate behind the scenes to raise the profile of our clients, not ourselves.
