Mark Wall Communications work across the country to deliver outstanding communication services for a range of organisations and companies. Since the company was formed in early 2011, we have worked with clients in the public and private sectors, in the health, housing, local government, manufacturing and third sectors.
We have provided additional media and communications support to existing teams; taken on one-off projects; reviewed existing processes and systems and provided training in media management, marketing and communication services. We have facilitated events and provided high level advice and consultancy on strategic and sometimes controversial issues.
