Popinjay Press Release

Tuesday 26th July saw Falkirk based Social Enterprise Company Popinjay launch Scotland’s newest Social Media Marketing Company.

The company, created by Linlithgow based entrepreneur Russell Dalgleish and headed by Tessa Heywood, provides jobs for the unemployed and disadvantaged in the Falkirk area to give a reasonably priced solution to those organisations that want to use Social Media platforms to win new business.

In the fabulous setting of the Brockville Lounge at the Stadium, an evening packed with some amazing guest speakers and culminating in the showing of the trailer for the new UK thriller “Making Ugly”, one of Popinjay’s first clients, it was a highly successful and enjoyable evening.

And officially launching Popinjay Russell Dalgleish said “we believe it is the responsibility of those of us who have had the enjoyment of experiencing successful and fulfilling careers to ensure that those that follow us receive the same opportunities. By linking Social Media with a community based project we believe we can achieve this.”
