Edge Creative. Quick to interpret

For more than twenty years we have built close, direct relationships with leaders of major businesses. It has been our privilege to provide event platforms for demonstrating strong and cohesive leadership. You always get our 'A Team' of seasoned professionals, resourced and programmed to go the distance, using sought-after proven tools so you never have to pause or explain. We’re insightful, respectfully challenging and smart enough to detect any elephants in the room. That 11th hour crunch? It always comes. So for your moment of truth don’t choose those who fade. We will lead you quickly to your goals.

Edge Creative. Confidently meet your strategic needs

We ask a lot of you. Questions. Commitment. Trust. That’s how we help you be who you say you are. We ensure your event’s purpose and outcome are clear and collectively agreed. This is genuine co-creation, where content leads creative. You will take part in our unique content and coaching workshops. Your event’s look, feel and content all align with strategy and goals. We also have ‘Verbatim’, a sophisticated post-event assessment tool so you can directly measure outcomes against the original desired outcomes. This event management approach puts everything in place to accelerate performance, while keeping your risk level low.

Edge Creative. Accelerate performance faster

“The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang” That pearl from Mary Kay Ash has made us the #1 event planner in New Zealand when it comes to shifting mass stakeholder mindset. The power of example is the most potent behavioural influencer, so we make it safe for leaders to lead by example. Being bold, taking risks, stepping outside comfort zones, challenging the status quo, breaking conventions, having fun. Welding strategy and creativity, we devise daring creative metaphors that embed your vision, strategic imperatives and brand promise in the heart of your workforce and partners. Carefully and consistently applying strategic creativity dramatically increases the effectiveness of your event.





"Memorable events with lasting impact."

Well, here at Edge Creative, we’re a special breed who know how to preserve energy and we resource for that inevitable spike in activity just before curtain up! Our experience will ensure there's “no surprises”.
