Public Affairs &
Political Comms Bulletin

We lead this week’s bulletin with news that Downing Street has begun the search for a political comms expert to lead daily White House-style press briefings, with several industry names already in the frame for the job.

Also, a former senior member of UKIP is among the founders of a new public affairs agency while another consultancy has been launched by one of the architects of Boris Johnson’s recent general election campaign.

And PRWeek UK has announced a new awards scheme which will place the spotlight on the best that public affairs has to offer, with entries being taken from early autumn.

The public affairs and political comms bulletin will return to your inboxes in September, but we will still be covering stories from the sector in the meantime.

Until the bulletin returns, enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe.
