About Us

We partner with businesses and organisations that value clever thinking
to deliver strategic outcomes.

We believe that good communications and marketing is hard to find

Special.t was borne out of the need for greater quality thinking underpinning clients’ interactions with their audiences. Whilst working as Marketing and Communications Manager at a large organisation Tejada was liaising with multiple advertising, design, PR and media agencies, dreaming of a better solution and a less fragmented way of working.

This constant drive to ‘find a better way’ led to the creation of special.t, offering purpose-driven communications and marketing that is intrinsically tied to business objectives. It’s a refreshing change.

We’re easy to do business with

You won’t be blinded with science or barraged with jargon. We listen first and talk straight.

We can join your team

We can easily become an extension of your marketing team, or come on board in lieu of one. Whatever works best for you.

We want you to succeed

Our long lasting client relationships are forged through positivity, collaboration, open communication and mutual respect. We deliver results. Our success is tied to yours.

What our clients are saying

"Special.t recently helped us complete a market feasibility analysis. Throughout the project Tejada showed a real aptitude for business and marketing strategy and insights. She quickly understood the market dynamics and used this to identify and recommend potential marketing opportunities to us. What she delivered was on budget, on time and better still, beyond the quality we expected.

I'd recommend Tejada to anyone needing more intellectual marketing grunt in their business."

- Steven Giannoulis, CEO @ Insight Creative



Tejada has worked client-side and agency-side of the communications and marketing fence for over 22 years in Sydney, London and now New Zealand. Keenly interested in what makes people tick, Tejada studied and became an NLP practitioner in London and focuses on strategies that influence behaviour. She works closely with business owners, CEOs and communications and marketing managers to develop tailored strategy that aligns with business objectives and achieves meaningful outcomes.
