Laurna O’Donnell and Beattie’s Six Million Dollar (okay, pounds) Plan

IF I were ever to switch codes from journalism to public relations, I always thought it would be for politics, charity or Laurna O'Donnell.        


So it was good to read a hugely enjoyable interview with her in Friday's edition of Business 7 with Greig Cameron, one of Scotland's best journalists.

As MD of Beattie Communications she has helped steer it towards an ambitious £6m target with eyes on New York, digital delivery and more.

This week also saw news of another shrewd signing – Charles McGhee – joining Beattie to head up their public sector team.

All while founder Gordon Beattie busies himself with extending their international reach from far flung places.

I smell a push from one of Scotland's best known PR agencies.

And that can only be good news for the industry here, and a clarion call for others to follow suit.
