Inverness Chamber spoke to Nathalie Agnew who founded Muckle Media following eight years at global PR agencies in London. Nathalie worked on international brands including British Airways, Tata and Hewlett-Packard. Nathalie is Managing Director of Muckle Media and responsible for all aspects of the agency’s work.
Nathalie shared why Muckle Media would like to feature as member of the week: "Muckle Media has been a member of the Inverness Chamber of Commerce for about six years and I’ve also served a three-year term on the board of directors, so being member of the week is a great way to keep in touch with members."
Nathalie shared their current projects: "We are currently working on some really exciting projects across a wide range of sectors from food and drink and professional services to supporting The Hunter Foundation with a black tie event with guest speaker Sir David Attenborough.
"This month we’ve been working with local company WooHa Brewery on a £600k crowdfunding project. Our work has included social media, PR and event support and they are over £500k already.
