Public Relations
For more than 30 years Ken McEwen, a Fellow of the Institute of Directors, has been working with clients, implementing effective public relations strategies to increase understanding, build reputations and add value.

Career highlights have included managing the Save Camphill campaign that successfully moved the multi-million pound Aberdeen by-pass away from two communities supporting children and adults with special needs.

We also handled worldwide media attention for the Project Urquhart scientific survey of Loch Ness. This involved carefully balancing the inevitable interest in ‘Nessie’ with the serious scientific research.

Planning campaigns have featured strongly and included the campaign that led to approval, on appeal, for the Boulevard Retail Park in Aberdeen. The heavily contaminated site could only be remediated with a high value land use, like retail.
Other planning campaigns have included work to facilitate the RGU campus at Garthdee, opposition to a supermarket on Aberdeen’s ring road, and many other commercial and residential development campaigns.

A further highlight was the campaign to establish the economic importance of salmon fishing on the River Dee as a means of motivating action to enhance and conserve salmon numbers.

Now that wealth of PR, public affairs, campaign planning and social media experience is available on a consultancy, or company adviser basis to help your organisation achieve its goals.
