Another Company Making Money out of Liverpool
Ever since Liverpool City gained the covetted title of Capital of Culture, we have seen companies falling over themselves in the scramble to get a piece of the pie'
When we needed these people in the aftermath of the 80's, when Liverpool was crying out for investment and employment, where were the big companies then?
Will they still be here when the money dries up??
This article from Daily Post gives details of a "public relations" company who admit when Liverpool started on the up so to speak, they suddenly want to be here!
What the hell is "public relations" anyway?
Launch for latest public relations firm to open in Liverpool
Sep 4 2006
THE chairman of public relations firm Bell Pottinger, Kevin Murray, came to Merseyside to officially launch the organisation's new Liverpool office.
More than 60 guests were entertained by a string quartet from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the city's newest boutique hotel, 62 Castle Street.
Mr Murray told guests from the city's business community, media organisations and local government that Bell Pottinger has had its eye on Liverpool for some time but wanted to get the right team.
"We've known for some time that Liverpool is on the up and have wanted a presence in the city. Richard Clein, who is heading up the office, is very well connected and gives us local expertise.
"But he is also able to draw upon a national and, where necessary, an international resource which can only be good news for businesses and other organisations on Merseyside."
