Wouters completed a double major in English and philosophy at the University of Auckland and is completing his master’s in business management, focusing on strategy. He wrote his honours thesis on the ‘oxymoronic nature of social media’, exploring the ways in which social media is inherently anti-social.

“The new recruits will support the business’s senior team to offer a broad suite of quality services to long term and more recent clients alike.
“We now have an embarrassment of riches with this bunch of extremely smart and capable graduates. That means we can continue to provide quality communications services to our existing clients while looking for opportunities to grow the business,” says Russo. “If you’re in the market for strategic public relations advice from an award-winning agency, we’d love to buy you a coffee.
