Spreng Thomson, one of Scotland’s most respected PR and communications consultancies, is broadening its range of services, with leading event management specialist, Emma Watson Mack, joining as a Spreng Thomson Associate.

Glasgow-based Spreng Thomson works with some of the UK’s leading businesses and organisations, helping its clients to achieve their goals using intelligent, creative communications.

Callum Spreng, Managing Director at Spreng Thomson, said: “This is an important move for Spreng Thomson and we’re thrilled to welcome Emma on board. Her client engagement and event management expertise will significantly strengthen and expand our offering and will be a great support for clients looking to return to more in-person events next year.”

Lesley Thomson, Managing Director at Spreng Thomson, said “We’ve worked closely with Emma for years, so she knows our team well. As our clients, and the business community as a whole, look for opportunities to re-engage with the people who are important to them, it is timely to support this with a team that can create events and face to face opportunities that will help them bring their values and brand to life.”

Emma brings more than 20 years’ experience and talent in event management and hospitality operations gained in London and Scotland following a successful career serving with the armed forces.

While working at Barclays’ global headquarters in London she was involved with the Barclays Premier League and the Global Challenge Round the World Yacht Race.

Emma said: “I am very excited to be joining the Spreng Thomson team. My focus has always been on how to create immaculately runface to face opportunities which set the stage for moments of inspiration and uplifting outcomes.

For me it is ultimately all about how you make people feel. In a post pandemic world – there is going to be an even greater focus on in person events like never before.

“Over the past six yearsI have partnered with Spreng Thomson on many projects from prestigious intimate gatherings to major, international VIP events and conferences. We work extremely well together as a team and I am looking forward to building on this in the months and years ahead.”  

In addition to her events portfolio, Emma is a Trustee for HorseBack UK, the Officers Association Scotland and a Governor of Loretto School. She is a Fellow of the Rank Foundation.
