Dan Wood

I am a strategic communications consultant with over 15 years' experience across the public and private sectors and particular expertise in NHS communications.

Working individually and with support from my talented network of specialist associates, I offer strategic advice, develop effective communications plans and have an excellent track record of delivering communications materials and projects of all shapes and sizes.

With experience of providing communications advice at the highest levels, from chief executives to government ministers, I am used to communicating carefully nuanced issues in complex, political environments.

Whatever your organisation, I can help you to ensure your communications support the delivery of your business, including:

  • developing communications strategies and plans to deliver tangible results
  • delivering communications materials, from print and media to video and web
  • from implementing research to inform strategy development and measure the effectiveness of communications
  • mapping and engaging stakeholders and audience segmentation
  • creating and refining messaging to achieve your desired result
  • developing your brand to enhance and exploit its value
  • auditing and reviewing existing communications and marketing to ensure they are meeting your needs.
