Daniel Hughes is an established name in public relations, having delivered impactful media campaigns for an impressive portfolio of clients over the past decade.
He started his career as a TV publicist before moving into a communications role for the national Labour Party. He worked under Prime Minister Gordon Brown, as well as under the Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband MP, when Labour returned to opposition in 2010.

His strategic thinking, contacts book and creative communications have made him a leader in the industry. He is regularly consulted by people and brands in the public eye on issues of reputation and stakeholder relations.
In 2014 Daniel masterminded the rebrand of the British LGBT Awards – transforming it into what is now: one of the UK’s most influential and well-known annual events. His client campaigns are frequently featured across Britain’s most powerful media.
In 2016 and 2017 he was listed on the Guardian’s World Pride Power List, and this year was nominated for a Chartered Institute of Public Relations award.
