“We engaged Ngātahi's services to help us overhaul our brand identity at the New Zealand Spinal Trust. Hannah clearly laid out the process, facilitated an excellent workshop with our diverse staff, interviewed key stakeholders to gain a clear understanding of the market's perception of our brand and then delivered recommendations and reworked copy in a clear and concise document. What shone through in working with Hannah was her honesty, integrity and drive to make an impact in the community.”

— Mike Brown, Community and Marketing Manager, NZST.

“The impact of our recent media relations around mental health in the construction industry has been huge. We have engaged a large number of clients, suppliers and other businesses that would have never been exposed to us prior - not to mention the fact that we are successfully spreading a message that is really important. I don’t think it could have gone better!”

— Chris Hughes, Chief Executive at Switched On Group.


“Fantastic local and national coverage.”

“Ngātahi was contracted to help us attract media coverage for our very first Little Gems Awareness Month in May 2019. Hannah very quickly developed a great understanding about Cholmondeley and what we were aiming to achieve. She promptly updated all of our media contacts and then generated a solid media release with appealing content for the media. It was picked up by The Press and TVNZ, which resulted in some fantastic local and national coverage for Cholmondeley throughout our Awareness Month. This coverage was crucial in highlighting the increase in demand for the vital service we provide for Canterbury families in times of stress and crises. Thank you Hannah, we couldn’t have achieved this fantastic result without your support.”

— Tanya Cooke, Fundraising and Marketing Manager at Cholmondeley Children’s Centre.

“Gave Life Education national credibility.”

"Exceptionally professional, natural enthusiasm and has a passion to work with not-for profits - these attributes made it easy to work with Ngātahi. Hannah is super efficient and organised. She provided us with some great ideas and inspiration to build on our promotion surrounding our 30th Anniversary in Canterbury. Hannah easily understood our organisation and crafted communication pieces which were exactly what we were after. With her press release, we were able to secure a live interview on The AM Show - which our Chief Executive jumped at the chance to do, giving Life Education national credibility. From this, and other activity Hannah helped put together, we have noticed an increased interest from schools to secure their booking for Life Education."

— Meri Wynen, Fundraising Manager at Life Education Trust (Canterbury).

“Strategically planned and well-executed communications.”

"I have worked with Hannah in different roles for more than 6 years and I can confidently say that she enables people to connect, communicate and achieve more than they think is possible. We wouldn't have been able to make the Christchurch Holi Festival of Colours so popular without Hannah and Ngātahi’s help. Our audiences are always well-informed with all the information leading up to and after events because of strategically planned and well-executed communications by Ngātahi Communications.”

— Hitesh Sharma, Director at Revel Events and Co-founder of Christchurch Holi Festival of Colours.


We are impressed by Ngātahi’s expertise with language and ability to tell stories. Hannah knows how to use the words that matter most and our communications are now more nuanced."

— Ruth Jones, Kaiwhakahaere at Hei Whakapiki Mauri.


“Ngātahi Communications understands that my business is about more than just making a profit. Hannah was great to deal with and provided real clarity around the process. Her work was presented quickly and accurately, and totally hit the mark."

— Tim Jones, The Grow Good Guy.


“What we had hoped for and more.”

“Working with Hannah and Ngātahi Communications is a dream. Our organisation has minimal budget for this type of professional work and so first of all, it was amazing how Hannah managed to find support for us from ChristchurchNZ to complete this project. The structure of what we have now is just what we had hoped for and more - making rhymes out of our riddles, so to speak! Hannah is clearly on top of the communications game and everything she has suggested has worked well for realising our objectives - and all of this in the context of a bustling little purpose-led business that’s often too busy to look up from the daily grind. I think the fact that we actually use and maintain the tools given to us shows that what Ngātahi does is totally relevant.”

— Bailey Peryman, Co-Founder at Cultivate Christchurch

“A champion storyteller and connector”

“Hannah from Ngātahi is a champion storyteller and connector for change, with a vision for a more inclusive and positive Aotearoa New Zealand. She enables others to consider their role in positive social and environmental impact and supports them to amplify their stories in ways that enhance mana and influence others. She is a collaborator who sees value in collective impact, and initiator of Canterbury’s Storytellers for Change collective. It is always such a pleasure to work with Hannah; to work alongside, learn with, and be inspired by her approach and her mahi. As a collaborator, she is approachable, humbly frank, and insightful; leading by example and inspiring others to bring the best version of themselves.”

— Jill Borland, Impact and Change Strategist at Jill Borland Enable Change.

“The team 'gets' us!”

"We are so grateful to Hannah and her team at Ngātahi Communications for their guidance and support in getting us on track with our communications. We now have a comprehensive and workable communications strategy. Our website homepage is also updated to better reflect who we are and what we do. We are confident with our social media processes and have launched our e–newsletter. The team 'gets' us. They are responsive, relevant, respectful, creative and fun to work with."

— Deirdre Ryan, Manager at Community Wellbeing North Canterbury Trust.
