PR Week
October 14th 2019
Public Affairs &
Political Comms Bulletin

In today’s bulletin, Sir Robbie Gibb gives PRWeek his first major interview since leaving his role as Theresa May’s official spokesman during two turbulent years in office.

In the exclusive interview, Gibb talks candidly about the Downing Street years and trying to craft a credible narrative in a febrile political environment.

He also gives us his verdict on Boris Johnson’s Brexit messaging and dealing with the reputational issues that have dogged him since taking office.

Gibb, who has joined Kekst CNC as a senior adviser, is an example of the value agencies place on pin-sharp political operators who also have the built-in “risk register” from working in journalism.
