I have vast experience of Government communications, working at the Department of Employment, the DTI, as Chief Press Officer at the Department for Education and most recently as Head of Media Relations at the Training and Development Agency for Schools.

I have advised Cabinet ministers and Chief Executives on reputation management. I created and ran the Department for Education’s first ever strategic stakeholder engagement operation, bringing together the National Union of Students, Universities UK and the Government on a joint campaign.

I have also run successful multi-channel campaigns on tuition fees, the New Deal and an award-winning PR campaign for teacher recruitment.
