Meet the PRWeek UK 30 Under 30 2020

PRWeek's annual glimpse of PR's future leaders is here. We profile 30 talented 20-somethings and discover how working in PR has differed from their expectations, what they would change, and their view of COVID-19's long-term impact on comms.

Meet the PRWeek UK 30 Under 30 2020

The group were selected after a nomination process and scrutiny from our expert judging panel.

Thanks to this year's judges for their huge efforts: Perveen Akhtar, senior PR manager, Europe, Dolby Laboratories; Alex Bigg, chief executive, Engine MHP + Mischief; Francis Ingham, director-general, PRCA; Effie Kanyua, director of PR and communications, Hearst UK; and Laura Peters, director of communications, Cancer Research UK.

This year the 30 were given the option of adding a video of themselves.
