SCOTLAND’S largest PR agency, The BIG Partnership, will use the All Energy Exhibition and Conference 2011 in Aberdeen to launch the country’s first dedicated energy communications service today.
BIG’s energy unit, headed by director Zoe Corsi, harnesses the agency’s expertise in media relations, stakeholder engagement and consultation, social media, planning and crisis management with its extensive experience in the energy sector and promote it to industry bodies, developers, multi-nationals, inward investors and start-up technology companies operating in all sectors of the energy industry.
Already almost £1 million of BIG’s turnover comes from energy clients and the agency is seeking to double this in the next 12 months.
The energy unit has five full-time staff with ambitions to grow this to ten within that period.
Current clients include AREG, Centrica, Langlee Wave Power, Senergy, Shell, Scottish Power and Xodus Group.
Zoe Corsi said: “Energy is a vital part of the Scottish economy and All Energy is an ideal platform to highlight our expertise in this sector.
“We have worked extensively for clients in upstream oil and gas for over ten years and are now capitalising on the exciting opportunities in areas such as carbon capture and storage, onshore and offshore wind, biomass and marine renewables.
”For over ten years, we have worked at a senior level, providing strategic consultancy to both the public and private sector on energy-related issues. The dedicated energy unit will offer a range of communications solutions to the challenges facing energy companies and position BIG as the market leader in energy communications.”
Clients of BIG’s energy unit will also receive a daily market intelligence report with all the day’s news and information gleaned from global sources.
All Energy, 18-19th May 2011, is the UK’s largest event devoted to all forms of clean and renewable energy. The exhibition and conference will be attended by over 530 exhibitors.
The BIG Partnership is the UK’s largest PR consultancy outside of London*, employing more than 90 people across four offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Fife.
