New North Partners is an advisory firm specialising in communications and reputation strategy.

What we do

We believe in the power of good communication to make an important contribution to an organisation’s success. Our focus is on three areas where our proven capability in strategic planning and communication delivery can add the greatest value for our clients.


Communications Strategy

New North Partners will establish how communications can help you to achieve your goals, whether building the reputation of your organisation, delivering a specific initiative or navigating a challenging situation.

We identify the stakeholders you need to influence, the opportunities to maximise your impact and the obstacles you need to overcome.

We will plan and execute a communications campaign with an integrated approach across your most important audiences, both external and internal.

When your organisation is faced with a crisis situation, we will provide strategic counsel and practical support to help you to manage risks, respond effectively and recover.


Narrative Development

Working collaboratively with you, New North Partners will help to define what your organisation stands for and craft the stories that bring your values to life.

We will develop a distinctive narrative that can be used to engage internal and external audiences.

This narrative can be used to create a range of different communication activity that tells your story in the most impactful way.

We can develop speeches, presentations, written publications and digital content, as well as help you to prepare for media briefings and interviews.


Organisational Capability

New North Partners will review the effectiveness of your communications function to ensure it is aligned with your organisation’s goals and equipped to deliver value.

We will assess the structure, resources and skills of your internal team and make practical recommendations to develop your capabilities.

We can define the right external support to meet your ongoing needs and, if required, help to select an agency and put governance in place to manage the relationship effectively.

We provide practical coaching for senior leaders involved in delivering communications to maximise the effectiveness of interviews, speaking platforms and other opportunities.
