When it comes to engagement programs associated with urban development and large scale infrastructure projects we’re one of the most experienced consultancies in Australia.
Our work has included award-winning programs for major initiatives such as the Scarborough Beach redevelopment, Elizabeth Quay, Fiona Stanley Hospital and on-demand transport reform, as well as community consultation programs on behalf of developers and government clients in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.
We do far more than just scratch at the surface when it comes to providing strategic advice. We embed our minds and hearts in an organisation or issue to devise comprehensive and robust plans to grow awareness, build businesses and improve reputations.
We're not the type to blow our own trumpet but we're one of Western Australia's most highly sought after agencies when it comes to corporate and campaign strategies and planning for both public and private sector clients.
We've been media advisers for countless clients, including the Western Australian Corruption and Crime Commission and the Blaxell Inquiry and we were the WA media affiliate for the 2016 Federal Election.
Our media networks and award-winning expertise mean we are called on during a crisis or for ongoing media relations support.
We have also planned and executed award-winning publicity campaigns for a number of major international arts exhibitions – including the Art Gallery of Western Australia’s St Petersburg 1900 and Peggy Guggenheim, the State Library of Western Australia’s National Treasures and Freycinet Collection, and the WA Museum’s A Day in Pompeii.
Most crisis situations are the result of unmanaged, or ineffectively managed, issues. We provide scenario planning, strategy development and hands-on implementation to make sure that doesn't happen to our clients and their organisations.
We specialise in strategies for communicating powerfully and confidently with internal and external stakeholders, including the media.
Many of our clients rely on our media training, particularly prior to campaign launches or major announcements, while others have engaged us for crisis training as part of an overall issues management strategy.
From writing compelling copy to editing and professional proofreading services we are passionate about the power of words and the way they can be used to add colour, creativity and strategy to projects.
Over the past 25+ years our team has worked on everything - from award submissions and annual reports, marketing collateral and magazines, to technical reports, tenders and websites.
Unraveling the complex workings of an organisation or a project and translating it into a meaningful narrative or memorable set of key messages has been the ‘secret sauce’ behind many of our award-winning campaigns.
We distill issues and processes by drilling down into the details while also looking at the bigger picture, and we combine this with our knowledge about what motivates different audiences, and why the right choice of words and images can propel an organisation forward.
From powerful information delivery to evocative storytelling, we are passionate about producing first-class video content that has been seen by hundreds of thousands of people.
Our senior team has worked both inside and alongside all of the major local (and not so local) news networks as producers, news directors or facilitators for hundreds of video-based stories about real people and issues.
We combine our strategic know-how and a finely-honed sense of storytelling to drive digital communications for a diverse mix of clients.
From websites to videos, email newsletters, blogs, social media and influencer campaigns, our digital team devises and delivers clever programs that spread all the right messages in the right places for our clients.
For two decades we’ve lived and breathed events – from conferences and exhibitions to grand openings to galas. No matter what the purpose, we create an event that meets our clients' needs.
We don’t just deal in words – we also have design capabilities.
Our highly experienced graphic designer Caryn has an eye for detail. Whether it’s a case of building a brand from scratch or interpreting design guidelines to create compelling and clever graphics for websites, social media or presentations; producing high quality publications – be it a two-sided newsletter or flyer or a 200-page book; or developing engaging exhibition panels, each project is tackled with the same degree of professionalism and creativity.
We understand the power of adding value to audiences and bringing them along for the ride across a broad range of communication channels.
From traditional newsletters and publications, to social media management, websites, blogs, videos, email marketing and in-person events, Mills Wilson has a knack for combining attention grabbing content with the most appropriate tools to nurture audiences and enhance our client's potential - be this through sales, donations, influence or shaping of opinions.
Every organisation has a great story to tell - and we relish the opportunity to help them, especially when there is a milestone to celebrate.
We've dug through archives to produce compelling coffee table publications, develop interactive exhibitions and helped to plan unforgettable events.
Mills Wilson understands the way Government works.
When it comes to government projects, we apply the same levels of robust planning and detailed research as we would with any project, coupling this with our political nous and an understanding of how the inner wheel operates through our first-hand experience and networks from decades of working with and for all three tiers of Government.
