Relate was founded in 2006, as a photography services company.
In our early development we focused on serving clients in the thriving Caribbean Destination Wedding Industry. Through this we’ve won multiple awards for our imagery and covered hundreds of destination weddings in countries throughout the Caribbean, America and on the African Continent.
Over the last decade we’ve evolved to provide world class Digital Content, Communication and Marketing Services to corporate clients in multiple sectors, including Energy, Financial, Technology, Hospitality, Education and Non-profit, travelling across the Caribbean and to two continents.
We’ve built our company on the philosophy that relationship is fundamental to success. Which we’ve encapsulated in the statement “It’s Good to Relate”.
This allows us to provide insightful, intuitive, seamless solutions that help to mature our clients’ businesses.
We have strong leadership, the ABSOLUTE BEST people on our core team and an extensive network of collaborators.
We are highly skilled, greatly creative and deliver with consistency, but the thing that sets us apart, is we live our CORE VALUES everyday.
More than just liked or admired, we are trusted.
We believe that healthy interactions increase productivity and provide a path for individual and organisational growth.
Each person on our team is valuable and has a fit. The more you discover your fit the more you bring value to the whole.
Beyond the work, the Relate environment helps our team develop in all areas of life.
What we say, do and present is who we are.
Our main focus is not profit, notoriety or accolades.
We don’t assume we know it all, we always search for more.
We are Caribbean born but we have global vision.
