Join us for a Leadership Seminar with Executive Director of Communications for UK Government, Alex Aiken

About this Event

What are the hallmarks of good leadership?

How can we improve the way we lead and inspire?

This seminar will explore the steps we need to take to develop our leadership capabilities, as PR/Communications professionals in Wales - and as women committed to supporting and shaping the organisations and clients we serve.

The session will be hosted by Alex Aiken who is the Executive Director of UK Government Communications. He was appointed in December 2012 and has been responsible for creating the Government Communications Service and developing cross-government campaigns.

Alex has a strong track record in raising professional standards at a global level, championing the role of communications as a strategic management function, as well as driving forward the OASIS framework and championing evaluation best practice.

Between 2000 and 2012 he was Director of Communications and Strategy for Westminster City Council, leading the policy, member services and communications teams.

He served as part of the group that oversaw the implementation of the Tri-Borough Shared Services programme and established the Westco communications consultancy which works for public and private sector clients around the UK.

He has been National Secretary of LGcommunications and Vice Chairman of the Public Relations Consultants Association Council. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA).

Before joining Westminster he worked in Parliament and for Conservative Central Office, leading the party’s Campaigns Unit and the Press Office. He has trained and advised politicians and officials in countries and states around the world in the practice of government and communications.

Alex was educated at the London School of Economics and Dame Alice Owen’s School.

He lives in Pimlico, London with his wife and children. In his spare time he is Chairman of an amateur football club, Westminster Wanderers FC.
