Arguably the most famous Press Secretary the UK has ever seen, Alastair is an intelligent and insightful keynote speaker.
When Alastair Campbell spent 10 years alongside Tony Blair, he absorbed a deep and cogent understanding of the world’s media. Exhibiting an unparalleled knowledge of how the industry works, he helps businesses strategise and enable change in times of crisis or uncertainty.
With his unique insight and skills, innovative ideas and the magnetism with which he delivers them, Alastair has become one of the world’s most sought-after keynote speakers.
His formal training came with the Mirror Group on local papers in the West Country, and then he joined the Mirror itself in 1982. After a brief foray into Today, Alastair returned to the Mirror and rose to the dizzy heights of political editor and the paper's political columnist.
When Tony Blair became leader of the Labour party he asked Alastair to become his press secretary. He accepted, and for three years he worked to build the reputation of New Labour and return the Party to power. After the 1997 election success, he became the Prime Minister's Chief Press Secretary and Official Spokesman and eventually Director of Communications and Strategy.
During his tenure in Downing Street, Alastair was integral to every major issue including international crises. Following the resignation of Tony Blair, Alastair’s best-selling memoirs, The Blair Years, divulged details of the inner workings of the Blair Government to a country thirsty for an intelligent insight.
