WHY GECKO CONNECT?
We put effort into being highly informed about the industries and countries our clients operate in and form close personal relationships with Clients, Government, Industry Bodies, Suppliers and Media. We come from a strong communications & brand background and appreciate the fact that messages need to be tailored and delivered for different audiences and platforms.
What sets us apart from our competitors is our diversity. We have an in-depth knowledge of the Corporate world as well as the Government and NGO sectors. We offer solutions that integrate the business strategic objectives in our Communications and Engagement plans.
We are not a publicity agency. We do not exist for the sole purpose of obtaining coverage for clients for their achievements.
