Co-Global Head of Strategy & Reputation


Sir Craig Oliver

Life at FGS Global

Life is good and busy - working with some of the UK and world's top businesses to help shape their strategic communications.

Life Pre-FGS Global

Pretty frenetic. I started life as a journalist - going on to edit the BBC's tv news and as Director of Politics & Communications at No10- Downing St.

Life Beyond FGS Global

Lots of interests - including my own podcast called Desperately Seeking Wisdom (on Apple, Spotify, GlobalPlayer, or wherever you get podcasts).

Craig is an award-winning journalist, who has covered stories all round the world. He edited the BBC's main tv news programmes and went on to help run BBC Global. In 2011 he was asked to be the Director of Politics and Communications at No10 Downing Street. He held the role for an eventful six years, including three referendums and a General Election.

Since leaving politics he has worked in consultancy - and is currently the Co-Head of the Strategy and Reputation practice.

His bestselling book on Brexit, "Unleashing Demons", was adapted into a film and he is the host of the popular podcast, "Desperately Seeking Wisdom."
