Who we are

QCCN is Queensland's top regionally focused communication consultancy focussing on stakeholder relations, corporate communication and public affairs.

Overall QCCN is the fourth largest consultancy in Queensland, with 18 team members across eight offices. QCCN is also one of the State's most awarded firms, boasting a string of national, international and global awards for regional projects.

QCCN traces its heritage back to 1987 and was born from the coming together of three leading regional firms - Business Nous (North Queensland), Cassius Communications (Central Queensland) and ECHO Communications and Marketing (Far North Queensland).

After growing to dominate their local/regional markets for a decade (Business Nous was founded in 1987) the firms combined their resources and expertise to better support clients with major projects or state-wide needs.

In 1999 the firms combined to become Queensland Corporate Communications Network Pty Ltd and progressively extended the network to cover all major regional centres.

QCCN now operates from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton and Gladstone, Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and Gold Coast; with strong links to highly respected specialists in Brisbane and further afield. We have a strategic partnership with the Brisbane office of  PPR, part of one of the world's most respected public relations and communication networks.

We offer single-point regional contact and management backed by high-level, on-the-ground support for projects and clients anywhere in Queensland.

In 2001, our dedication to excellence was recognised and we were invited to join the PRIA's prestigious Registered Consultancies Group (RCG) which regulates major communication consultancies and provides a rigid ethical and professional framework. QCCN is the only non-metropolitan member of the RCG in Queensland. QCCN also gained Level 3 prequalifiication to undertake communication and stakeholder relations projects for the Queensland Government under the Queensland Government PQC scheme.

If your organisation needs to better understand or effectively engage with stakeholders and enhance your corporate reputation anywhere in Queensland, QCCN has the track record, coverage and expertise you need.
