Springboard Communications is an award-winning integrated communications agency.

We are driven by being the best and working with the best. The best comes in many forms – from global ambition to affecting local change, and from scaling outwards to transforming from within. We love working together to make a positive impact –  not only for our clients, but for our community.

This is who we are:

We spend time understanding you – who you are, what you do and the results you need. Our agile team is made up of strategists, digital natives, creatives and writers.

We are naturally curious, and truly believe knowledge is power and planning is key. We never offer a cut and paste service. Instead, we partner with you to craft and deliver tailored integrated campaigns that work.




We love what we do. We know everyone says that, but we truly do. Doing a good job and seeing our client’s success is what gets us out of bed in the morning. That’s why Susie founded Springboard and built a team based on our values:

To be the best, To challenge, Together.

We are a team of dynamic, hungry, creative and experienced people who love working together to make a positive impact not only for our clients, but for our community.
