Broadcasting Business bucks economic downturn

A SCOTTISH media consultancy is reporting a 20 per cent increase in income during the first two months of this year – compared to twelve months ago.

Seemingly bucking the economic downturn, the Broadcasting Business – run by former BBC Scotland presenter, Alan Douglas, and sports presenter, Bill Macfarlan – has recently recently secured a contract to train Scottish Enterprise staff in presentation skills, plus another to provide a three year-long programme of communications training for senior officials at Fife Council.

Meanwhile, they’ve been working with NHS spokespeople get ready for a cervical screening programme.

The Glasgow-based company is also now into the second year of a three-year programme training more than a hundred senior fire and rescue managers from across Scotland on how to handle the media, particularly at the scene of emergencies.
