‘Primate Presents’ – Our new speaking series


On 3 September 2015 our ‘Primate Presents:’ talks series takes off! (and we’re mighty excited about it)…

The first evening of talks is titled ‘Campaigns for Charities’, and brings together three great speakers covering branding, marketing and web, and how best to combine them to deliver great fundraising campaigns. The evening is designed for those working for, or with, charities of any size and this month’s venue is the Dirty Martini Bar in Le Monde, George Street, Edinburgh.

Tickets are limited – 40 spaces only – so book one now, they also include two free drinks and some great networking opportunity.




Veronica Ferguson

from heedi design will talk about the power of simple campaign branding for individual projects and fundraising drives.


Ed Waterson

from Waterson Tanner & Co brings his big-brand marketing insight, to explain how this thinking easily applies to small projects.


Gordon McLachlan

of Primate will chat agile project delivery, and the benefits of delivering campaign microsites in phases to maximise your budget and creativity.

Why the focus on charities?

We’ve worked with a lot of charities and we understand the challenges of trying to create a big impact with budgets of varying size, and causes that range from the well-known to the brand new.

They’re not the easiest of projects but they are some of the most fun and rewarding to work on. We’ve also learned a lot in the process and committed to our brand value; give back, we always knew we wanted to give talks and conferences to share our knowledge and insight. Charities just seemed like a good place to start.

What’s Primate Presents

Primate Presents is a series of talks covering all things web, marketing, brand, advertising and of interest! Each talk has its own theme or focus. Speakers get 20 minutes on the floor and the event rounds off with an open-floor Q&A with the evening’s speaker line-up. We even throw in drinks and snacks.
