“We know the people you need to know”.
A great example of this was in the launch of a world-first ‘fusion’ whisky – “The Glover Whisky”.
Joanna Goddard, Co-Founder of PGR was approached by Jim Millar to assist with ideas for engagement between Scotland and Japan – specifically after Jim had played a key role in the architecture of a new strategy for Aberdeen.
The “Scottish Samurai”, Thomas Blake Glover, is an icon in Japan but little known nor fully celebrated in his native Aberdeenshire for his remarkable 19th century achievements in Asia. These included the foundation of Mitsubishi Corporation and what is today Kirin Brewery, as well as the gift of his home in Nagasaki which sees over 2 million visitors per year.
The idea was hatched with the team at PGR to put a whisky at the heart of the engagement strategy. PGR, through Director Graham Langley, then assisted Jim Millar to forge the links with Asia industry veteran David Moore and (through David) to Alex Bruce, the Managing Director of Adelphi Distillery and onto secure investment.
This month, Paul Atkinson from the PGR team is meeting with clients in Hong Kong to explore interest in a major Scottish property investment, following meetings with Scottish Development International here in Scotland.
Graham Langley from the PGR team will be attending the 2015 China Golf Show in Beijing.
Meeting with established contacts and clients, he will be exploring some of the most exclusive investment opportunities currently available in Scotland and the UK.
