COMMUNICATING, NORTH OF THE BORDER
Despite the global nature of communications, the UK’s PR and comms industry is often described as ‘London-centric.’ While it is true that many agencies and trade bodies reside in the UK capital, the proliferation of the industry has led to more widespread appreciation of the contribution made by regional communications. One such award ceremony, the Institute of Internal Communications (IoIC) Scotland Awards 2017, recognises the best in internal communications north of the border.
CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP AND PERFORMANCE
For three weeks each August, the capital of Scotland transforms from picturesque university town, to picturesque university town playing host to one of the most famous cultural festivals in the world – the Edinburgh International Festival. For its 2017 instalment, Edinburgh-based asset management and investment trust, Baillie Gifford, has extended its long-term sponsorship with the festival to promote the art of dance.
THE (SUZY) SPIRIT OF PR
Set among the hanging vines and trickling waterfalls of the Barbican’s hidden Conservatory, the fourth annual Suzy Ferguson Spirit Awards was testament to those individuals who ensure PR is a diverse and welcoming industry in which to work. And, with a £4,000 donation made to Bowel Cancer UK, the afternoon’s awards ceremony and dinner was not without reflection.
