Genie communications works on a fractional and virtual basis.

We describe it as full-time head and heart, part time cost.

We’ve created and delivered corporate communications strategies for blue-chip companies going through fierce change and inspirational engagement. 

This experience means we can act fast, bring fresh thinking, reliable playbooks and the ingredients from tested solutions. 

Business turnaround

The value of a business isn’t just on the balance sheet. It’s on the level of trust and connection it has with employees, customers and all stakeholders.

We can help you to navigate the choppy waters of a business under stress using our tested plans and playbooks.
