“Fantastic news – our article in your current ‘Awareness Today’ publication has already brought a new member to the NZ Early Menopause Support Group. I’m thrilled that we’ve achieved such a good result already! Thank you so much for the part you play in making a difference in New Zealanders’ lives. I can’t wait to receive my copy and see it for myself. Warm wishes”.



“I have received a copy of the feature article in the Central Today and I am just writing to say thanks very much for what is a very well presented paper/magazine, the article looks fantastic especially with the big photo on the contents page.  We are already getting some great feedback from it, and I would be interested on your thoughts regarding doing this in some other areas of the country with our local agents possibly providing some of the advertising elements. Thanks again”.

“I am writing to thank you for the excellent way in which the latest edition of Canterbury Today has profiled Christchurch City Holdings limited and its subsidiaries. We are delighted with the articles which have been published and with the positive way in which our group of companies has been portrayed in their important role of looking after key parts of  the city’s infrastructure.  We were pleased that you approached us about featuring our group and believe this will help in getting more knowledge about our business and the way it operates out into the community.

I also want to thank you personally (Zak Cooper) for the way in which you approached this task. You ensured that the article captured well the key issues which lie behind the company, its development and the role it plays.   I was impressed with the way you went about the task and in particular the way in which we were afforded good opportunity to have input into the final article on CCHL.  Thank you for your professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you”.

“Thanks for the cover story on yours truly. I can’t believe the number of people who read the article, including strangers who contacted me – probably testament to the wide coverage, and moreso readership, of this paper. Thanks for sending me a number of copies to give to family and friends”.

“Academy Publishing staff were friendly and thoroughly professional in developing the recent cover story for Auckland Today, in which I was featured as well as the services of Business Mentors NZ .The final article was high quality and I would have no hesitation in recommending this publishing agency”.

“I always enjoy reading your publications because there is always a mix of helpful, informative (and pertinent) articles and advertising.  I also appreciate that your tone is more upbeat and positive than some publications in these trying times.  That would be my only recommendation – keep it positive, and stay away from the self-fulfilling prophecies of the doomsayers.  I like the size and layout as it is too. And I know we had some response to our own ad because we got some bookings from it.  That’s got to be good”.

“I thought the publication (Canterbury Today) was very good and we actually received some good feedback as a result of it.  I have had a couple of meetings with people as a direct result of the publication which is always good proof that it was worthwhile. The Canterbury Today staff that I dealt with were very good and the time to complete the article was effortless and minimal.  I thought that your team was great and I would like to thank you for the opportunity of appearing in the recent edition. Once again many thanks on a job well done”.
