Three months into her new role at the National Autistic Society,
communications director Judith Barnard is to rebrand the charity.
Barnard has brought in Edelman PR, branding agency Enterprise and
advertising agency J Walter Thompson to help devise a new image, which
will be kept under wraps until its launch in six months’ time. Since her
arrival, Barnard has boosted her communications team to 30 with the
appointment of a parliamentary liaison officer, Virginia Henry, two
press officers and a helpline co-ordinator.
