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

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

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