We’ve been changing perceptions, enhancing reputations, and generally keeping clients in the forefront of their respective industries, since we first opened our doors back in 2002.

Acumen ranks as one of Scotland’s top mid-tier PR Consultancies with a formidable track record and an uncanny knack of getting our clients positioned where they need to be seen.

We’ve had the satisfaction of seeing our clients being selected for significant contract wins, winning awards, securing funding and being able to open up new markets and sales channels through our efforts. After all, we’re only doing our job.

Moreover, we have been fortunate to work with some of the most dynamic technologies to emerge from Scotland in the past five years – cutting edge and disruptive technologies that transform lives in healthcare, communications, medical devices and bioscience. Acumen goes beyond expectations and our clients reap the benefits.

You won’t find any clients passed down the ‘food chain’ to junior staff either. We’ve heard this complaint so many times – Director or Senior Partner goes in to a client, wins the work, and allows a junior member of staff to ‘learn on the job’! It will never happen at Acumen.

Director level engagement is our ‘mantra’ at all times.
