Calling all Glasgow SMEs!

Three of Scotland’s top PR professionals, all Fellows of the CIPR, have collaborated to develop a pop-up marketing workshop.

It aims to equip small businesses with the skills to do some basic PR and marketing for themselves. We recognise not all businesses have big budgets!

Aura’s Chief, Laura Sutherland, has joined with Catalyst Communications’ Alison Arnot and Zude PR’s Dave Sawyer (biogs below) to deliver three different one-hour workshops, each run on a one-to-one basis.

1. Strategy by Alison
2. Platforms and channels by Laura
3. Free online tools by Dave

On 26th January this pilot session will be held in Glasgow and it’s expected to be fully booked. Enquire now to ensure you supercharge your marketing in 2016 and add value to your bottom line!

As a special introductory offer, we’re putting the whole package together for £300 inc VAT!
