Getting back to business

We are in the early phases of getting back to a form of normality. It is important to recognise that respective Governments have been making difficult decisions at every stage with the important objective of keeping us all as safe as possible.

As we slowly ease from lockdown, it is clear that this will, quite rightly, be based on scientific and health advice. However, whilst we can wait for Government to ease restrictions, we can also help influence the process. Government is willing to listen to business. They welcome evidence and research that advocates a case for sectors, businesses or organisations to open up.

We can assist you in building and advocating your case to get your business or sector moving. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Above all else, stay safe.

Our Scottish American friends

Unfortunately, neither Henry McLeish or Iain McMenemy were able to attend any Tartan Day or Scotland Week events in the US this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Scottish Americans take great pride in celebrating their cultural and family connections and the events they hold in April are always a joy to be part of.

Understandably, events were curtailed this year, but we look forward to visiting again in future years, meeting up with the many friends we have made, and continuing to celebrate the ties that bind us and the shared history between our nations.

Stay Safe

Look after yourself. Help others safely, if you can. Don’t take any silly risks. Think of the impact of your actions on others. Follow the guidance. Practice social distancing. Work at home when and if you can. Remember we’ll get through this. Keep your thoughts on a positive future. Stay safe everyone.

Coronavirus Comms

As the Coronavirus spreads across the world and is gaining pace in the UK, the UK Government has mobilised a comms offensive to prepare for things to come.

The message they have adopted is to ‘Wash your hands more often and for 20 seconds”. Whilst this may sound like a very basic message, it is clear that the comms team are aiming to tackle a complex issue with simple messaging.

There has of course been daily updates, COBRA meetings and many other media briefings and activity, but the simple message to an anxious public is designed to be easily understood and acted upon.

In the face of many serious faces on the news, and an arguably overactive media, this simple approach to comms, aimed beyond the press to individual homes, is the right way forward.
