Find out how we're helping Scotland to become the most entrepreneurial society in the world.


Entrepreneurial Scotland (ES) aims to inspire and develop Scotland’s people to build the most entrepreneurial society in the world. The organisation is inspiring, developing and connecting a diverse, talented and ambitious community of people who have the potential to change our economy and society.

We help ES with their external communications and PR for their signature events; the annual ES Summit, Saltire Foundation Leadership Day; and member-focused events with some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs. Alongside this, we advise ES on stakeholder engagement and digital strategy


The challenge

ES Annual Summit: Design and deliver a high-impact PR and social media campaign targeting Scotland’s entrepreneurial leaders to ensure full attendance at this annual signature event.

What did the attendees think?


How we used creativity to design the right response

Spreng Thomson designed and managed an effective multichannel media strategy that achieved high-impact coverage and brand awareness acros traditional and digital communication channels.

Our team played a key role in forming and driving relationships with external stakeholders including international guest speakers, media partners and corporate partners.
