As a food writer and blogger, it’s sometimes quite daunting to work with big corporate, fast-paced (and mostly faceless) public relations companies. When I was first introduced to Wired Communications, I was so surprised at how much they value the human element. Before long, I have built a relationship with each person at Wired Communications, and these relationships are still standing many years later. They are personable, yet incredibly professional. But above all, they arepassionate about their business. And about yours, too. If you are looking for a dedicated team of PR and communications specialists that will invest in you just as much as in your business (however big or small!), Wired Communications comes highly recommended.
Wired Communications are an exceptionally talented and dedicated team. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a bunch of PR experts who share the passion of Karey and her team. Getting the job done right is their absolute focus. Their energy and professionalism are inspiring and More Than Food is excited to work with them on many more media ventures.
Over the past ten years we have been fortunate to alongside Wired Communications on events ranging from the massive Good Food and Wine Show to smaller premium events and more recently on the Cape Town Flower Show.Whether collaborating, working for or with Karey Evett, Lana Martens, Tammy Tinline or the team at Wired, we have been blown away by their level of professionalism and service excellence.It is seldom that one finds such a passionate group of people, so determined to meet their clients objectives in the most creative and engaging way.Their understanding of events makes them perfect partners on a project, as they provide outstanding support and what is so rewarding to see, are the results they achieve in ensuring just the right messaging and imagery gets to the appropriate target audience at the right time! They are connected, strategic and creative and this combined with their results driven attitude, makes them leaders in the field of communications and a pleasure to deal with at all times.
We have partnered with the Wired team on many projects over the years, with more recent support on our ZZ2 and BAIC campaigns. They always jump in, do whatever it takes to ensure success and deliver impressive ROI results. They are our preferred PR partner of choice and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking a hard working team who delivers.

Wired Communications handled not only the PR but also all media communication – across online platforms and social media as well as advertising and direct marketing.The results were outstanding; we received over R44-million worth of editorial coverage alone and what I noticed particularly was that the media interest was constant, genuine, helpful in promoting the event and respectful of what we were trying to achieve with this first event.In fact, we had no negative media coverage at all and it was said by the media that they appreciated the varied and useful content that was given to them.
I can say, unequivocally, that if you want effective PR for an event in order to attract visitors to attend, you need look no further than Wired Communications.We were highly delighted with the way they handled the business and it was a pleasure working with them – something we hope to do again in the future, if only the rain would fall plentifully.
Wired Communications has successfully managed our PR and traditional media relations for over 10 years. During that time, our winery has gone through a series of exciting branding and product changes and is constantly growing. Wired has always been quick to not only grasp the essence of these changes but also to adapt and deliver accordingly. The agency is creative and effective; and the service levels are really excellent.

I’ve worked with Karey Evett and her amazing team at Wired Communications on numerous occasions over the years – from book launches and major food events to bespoke braai events, media dinners and press trips. In short, Wired gets the job done … and gets it done properly. I am always impressed by their incredible enthusiasm, energy and sheer determination to get the best results. For example, if I say to them that I need something in a hurry because I’m doing a radio feature, they always exceed expectations and deliver ahead of deadline. They are fabulous, great to work with, fun, helpful, creative, professional and everything you could want – and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wired as a superb agency.
We ﬁrst worked with Wired Communications when they were holding the Cape Town Flower Show in 2016.They approached me to build a show garden at their event and our relationship has ﬂourished since then. More recently we have been collaborating with Wired Communications on a series of video clips to demonstrate South Africa’s indigenous plants to post onto their digital platforms to maintain public interest and continuity of the Cape Town Flower Show until their next event.Their media expertise and relationship building has increased my proﬁle in South Africa for which I am enormously grateful. I would not hesitate in recommending Wired and their team, and look forward to working with them on their future events.
We have been working with Wired Communications for the past five years. In all that time we have always received excellent service levels and value from the agency. Wired helps us with most of our marketing communication requirements, including advertising and content development. The agency is creative, proactive and professional and we would not hesitate to recommend Wired Communications.

Wired Communications has been my PR company of choice for both my Winelands Chocolate Festival events in the Cape Winelands. A small, Cape Town based company who operate with dynamic and enthusiastic attention to detail. This goes for every member of the staff and applies in particular to the endlessly energetic and inspirational Karey Evert herself. I have found Wired to be creatively solutions-driven, with an excellent understanding of effective communications. They are well connected, and support was offered on many levels, from putting the word out in regular, well-written, media briefs, engaging with all the right people; getting media fired up and getting the public fired up. Having their professional support was a huge part of my success and, knowing what I now know, I would not do a public event without the support of a top PR company.
From the “get go”, I saw that Karey and her team would offer that personal touch and professional service that every business needs. Throughout the planning phase of our campaigns, they patiently walked me though the different phases with open and honest communication to ensure that we would reach our goal. With a serious “bite to their bark”, they followed that up with a very effective media press trip, showcasing how well connected they are in the industry.
