Whats been happening in this PR agency
Believe it or not, September 2015 is Chicken Month, so to celebrate we are plucking some of the best of client stories from the past week.
It has recently celebrated landing a milestone contract, helping CGI deliver on a £186m IT contract with City of Edinburgh Council.
This will help to achieve a potential 100x faster internet speed – with Schools likely to be a key beneficiary. Faster internet makes for a better learning environment and the advantages to that are limitless.
And the media were certainly no slouches to this – the story went big, with a spread in the Edinburgh Evening News, also hitting the business pages of the Scotsman and Herald as well as a vast amount of quality online coverage.
This week, Blackwood has been put through their paces by two of Scotland’s top wheelchair basketball teams.
You’ll remember in January, we announced Blackwood’s sponsorship of wheelchair basketball team Lothian Phoenix coached by Tina Gordon.
This time we’ve been telling their story, when Phoenix invited several of Blackwood’s employees to get stuck into a tough training session involving wheelchair basketball, badminton and rugby against rivals Dundee Dragons and their sponsor, Gowrie Care.
Blackwood and Lothian Phoenix were a slam dunk in the care press, such as Housing Scotland Today and Scottish Housing News, while also landing coverage in disability lifestyle magazine PosAbility.
And finally, this beautiful Dundas Farmhouse – on sale through our client Gilson Gray – scored a front cover mention and a double page spread in the Scotsman’s property supplement ‘Real Homes’.
We pulled out the most interesting features of the fantastic property to ensure the best possible coverage that should lead to a quick and successful sale by the delighted current owners.
