News Scotland

NEWS Scotland – publishers of The Times Scotland, The Sunday Times Scotland and The Scottish Sun – has appointed Alison Harter to the (newly-created) post of events manager.

Harter has worked in commercial event management for almost 20 years.

Formerly head of events with the Herald & Times Group for nearly 14 years, she was responsible for the creation and launch of the extensive and successful events portfolio for The Herald, Evening Times and Sunday Herald.

Harter then moved to DC Thomson where she was responsible for setting up a commercial events division for the business, building a strategy, recruiting and mentoring a new team, developing existing events and creating new event platforms.

News Scotland runs an extensive programme of events to engage its readers throughout the calendar year.

Its ‘Future of Scotland’ event series has proved popular this autumn, with well-attended debates in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee held in the past few weeks and the final event in the series due to take place in Aberdeen next Thursday (7th December).

Sir Ian Wood, chair of Opportunity North East, Deborah O’Neil, chief executive of Novabiotics, and Colette Cohen, chief executive of the Oil and Gas Technology Centre, are the panellists at the event, which will be chaired by Kenny Farquharson of The Times.

The breakfast seminar, which is sponsored by Addleshaw Goddard and being held at The Chester Hotel, is free to attend.

News Scotland general manager, Richard Bogie, said: “Alison brings a wealth of experience in commercial event management and is an excellent addition to our growing commercial team.

“The Future of Scotland event series has been a great success and I look forward to working with Alison on next year’s calendar of events as we create more opportunities for our audiences to engage in greater depth on specific issues, while offering excellent commercial opportunities for partners.”

Alison Harter said: “The success of News Scotland titles ensures that readers are well-informed about the major issues happening across Scotland, the UK and wider world. I’m thrilled to be getting started and look forward to creating a busy and captivating events calendar in 2018.”
