Hootville Communications is a PR and communications agency offering media, marketing and communications training, website / social media development, campaign planning and event emcee services. Brett de Hoedt founded Hootville in 1999 with no business plan beyond straightforward world domination and the motto: Communications for good not evil. Both the motto and the plan remain in tact today.

Hootville has worked on issues including mental illness, youth homelessness, legalisation of euthanasia, child sponsorship, conservation, hepatitis prevention, disability employment and Indigenous reconciliation – all of which are preferable to promoting perfumes and sports drinks.
