TOP TEN REPUTATION MANAGERS

The trusted adviser, who was previously Prince Charles’s press secretary, is no stranger
to influential figures, having met President Obama and the Pope while working for the Royal household.

Harrison’s second year at Weber Shandwick has given him an even more extensive network of clients to work with, from ministers to CEOs and charity leaders across the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

The firm’s global reach provides variety, which he says places him in a privileged seat with enhanced visibility of both public and commercial sectors: ‘Not only does this make for interesting work, but I am consistently seeing the same issues raised across multiple sectors. Whether it’s exploring additional social media channels, creating new forms of content, revising crisis plans, or making greater use of paid promotion, each client is aware of their
need to communicate in a smarter way.’

The Dorset-born former journalist began his career in the prison service, dealing with everything from promotion of rehabilitation programmes to facing escapes and hostage situations. He then began his role as government spokesperson, before moving to Clarence House and finally Weber Shandwick.
