Jason spent 20 years as a Fleet Street journalist, including six years as City editor of The Independent on Sunday, before becoming director of media relations at Barclays plc.
Since moving to consultancy he has specialised in reputation management, contentious issues and special situations, advising clients as diverse as AXA, Nintendo, the Bank of England, Investec and the shale gas industry. He has also lectured on crisis communications at Harvard University.
My proudest moment? I enjoy tricky communications challenges but some of my proudest achievements at Newgate are ones where the result is that the client – intentionally - received no publicity.
