Diary: It takes a secretary to create a really good bash

Rosemary Collyns, long-suffering secretary to Westminster Strategy managing director Michael Burrell, was yesterday rewarded for her ten years service with a gathering of her past colleagues and tormentors.

Rosemary Collyns, long-suffering secretary to Westminster Strategy

managing director Michael Burrell, was yesterday rewarded for her ten

years service with a gathering of her past colleagues and

tormentors.



Burrell invited all former WS staffers to a party at Westminster’s Bar

Excellence to celebrate Collyns’s tenth anniversary in the job - no

doubt an excellent opportunity for guests to network as much as to

admire Collyns’s tenacity.



Westminster Strategy has seen so many would-be lobbyists and future

public affairs grandees pass through its doors that it is jokingly

referred to by some as the industry’s training academy.



When PR Week went to press, the list of public affairs luminaries

attending the glittering event included Bell Pottinger public affairs

managing director Kevin Bell, Fishburn Hedges director Graham McMillan,

Shandwick public affairs director Jon McLeod and GPC managing director

Peter Bingle.



Let’s hope that all rivalries were kept to one side.
