Communications

Driving the communications component of Earthstock Media is Leanne Mitchell. She applies an integrated-thinking approach to the communications materials we develop thanks to her background and experience in communications, journalism and media. Her experience in social development, combined with her writing skills and commitment to sustainable development are key to developing suitable strategies within the governmental, private and civil society spaces.

We work with organisations to strategically manage their relationships with customers, end users, stakeholders, and the community by communicating the best message, through the right channels, measured against well-considered goals. We achieve this by developing appropriate and cost-effective communications materials that expertly promote your brand.
