Profile: Gordon Beattie, Beattie Media: As close as you can get without burning - Gordon Beattie has built up a business through brash self-promotion
Gordon Beattie refuses to let the ’lobbygate’ scandal which has
engulfed his agency in the last three weeks bring him down. ’We have not
lost one client since the publicity,’ he asserts confidently. But two
minutes later comes a sheepish qualification: Beattie Media has actually
lost two clients - a charity he refuses to name and the UK Atomic Energy
Authority, both previously on the books of the fledgling public affairs
arm Beattie had to shut down earlier this month.
