Been wondering what’s become of PR’s Mr Big, aka Alan Capper, former
worldwide chairman of The Rowland Company? ’Course you have.
Well, since he linked up with Tim Bell’s Chime Group he’s been busy,
A recent week’s work saw him standing in for Sir Tim at Baroness
Thatcher’s 70th birthday bash in Washington. Then came dinner with PLO
leader, Yasser Arafat, who had been invited to speak at the Kennedy
school, Harvard,where Capper is on the board.
Next up, a press conference with New York’s chief Rabbi on the Sunday
after the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin.
‘Dealing with nine TV crews on a Sunday proved rather taxing,’ said
Capper last week, rushing off for a turkey and squash Thanksgiving
lunch. ‘Get that diary piece in, I want people to know I’m still alive.’
