ViewPublica – Our People, team and collaborations

 

The ViewPublica team is made up of people from various backgrounds and industries who are working or have involvement at the highest levels of media and politics. These ‘insiders’ have wide experience and hands-on knowledge in the world of political public relations that include contacts with former MPs and civil servants – who are used to formulating strategic communications. Some have campaigning experience including associations and partnerships with former journalists, public affairs consultants and public relations executives.

ViewPublica has been working via a centralised digital workspace unit since 2015 to allow the entire team to work from anywhere whilst being fully connected and be wherever we need to be for our clients. The digital workplace is where we work – commuting digitally more than physically.
