Our success

Last Word has helped to write, edit and proofread a wide range of PwC white papers and reports. A recent example of was the Global Economic Crime Survey 2016: New Zealand insights, which explores behaviours, attitudes and trends in cybercrime, ethics and compliance programmes, as well as anti-money laundering. Last Word also worked on PwC's recent New Zealand 2015 Transformation Insights report, which included interviews with top executives from 15 government agencies.
