About us

A passion for excellence

We believe effective communication is based on integrity and trust – not only between speaker and listener, writer and reader, but between all those engaged in the process that goes into making media compelling and persuasive. We love working with others who want to make the world a better place.

Testimonials

Anna Rose

National Manager / Earth Hour Australia

We were very lucky to have Tim’s formidable editorial skills and vision to put together the Planet to Plate cookbook. He has a wealth of knowledge about editing and publishing, and a keen eye for detail. His determination and commitment meant we put together a quality product that satisfied all the various stakeholders – farmers, scientists and celebrity chefs – in an extremely short period of time and on a shoestring budget.

Candy Robertson

Graphic Designer / Goody Communication

I had the great pleasure of working alongside Tim on the Earth Hour cookbook. He is an excellent communicator with a great eye for detail and appreciation for design. His ability to solve problems and effectively delegate key tasks and communicate information, whilst being ever mindful of the scientific, political and human considerations the project naturally found itself in, was one of the key reasons to the project’s success. Planet to Plate not only communicated all key messages effectively, but also produced a visually appealing publication that exceeded all levels of expectation from management and partners.
