Connexion PR was established in 1984 when Bob Carter saw an opportunity to assist recreational boating companies with their promotional efforts.

"We began exclusively to service the marine industry," Bob Carter said. "However, our reputation as a down-to-earth consultancy, with a "tell it like it is" approach soon attracted attention beyond the boating industry."

What began as a business singularly dedicated to core PR and promotional services, has evolved into a business that offers an extensive range of marketing services.

Connexion recognises that many clients wish to consolidate their marketing effort. Often this is a factor of budget limitations, occasionally a result of convenience but always driven by results.

Under the one roof, Connexion provides the full gamut of marketing solutions.

From our core PR and promotional services, through web design, social media, advertising, graphic art, digital design, video production, strategic planning and direct marketing, Connexion is able to develop a fully integrated program where the various factors involved in a successful marketing campaign can be brought together with flair and efficiency.

"There's an amazing elegance in the way we interact with the world, and with so much more information and devices in our every day lives it becomes more and more important to make sure they do the job right".
