Andy Coulson | Speaker Biography

Andy Coulson is Former Editor of News of the World, Former Director of Communications, Downing Street, and an expert speaker on communications, crisis management and reputation. Throughout his career Andy has been, as he puts it, poacher, gamekeeper and game – experiencing crisis from every angle. He worked with David Cameron in Opposition and was a lead strategist in the 2010 General Election, helping his boss become Prime Minister after 13 years of Labour government. In Downing Street Andy built and managed the coalition communications team and directly advised the Prime Minister and Cabinet on all crisis issues. In his memoir David Cameron said: "Andy [had] transformed my relationship with the media and translated the theory of modern, compassionate conservatism into something tangible and sexy." Andy resigned in 2011 saying: "When the spokesman needs a spokesman, it's time to move on." He then spent the next five years dealing with the fall-out of the News of the World hacking scandal, facing three high profile legal cases. He won two but lost one and spent just under five months in prison, including two months in high security HMP Belmarsh. Since then, Andy has rebuilt his life, putting all his experience to work as the founder of a successful strategic advisory firm, Coulson Partners, advising global CEOs, entrepreneurs and philanthropists. He hosts the popular podcast Crisis What Crisis? Created in the midst of the first lockdown, Andy interviews the survivors of all manner of crises, personal and professional and finds value in listening to the stories of the unravelled. As a speaker, Andy draws from his careers in journalism, politics and business to offer a clear view on how to cope when the tough times come. He believes crisis can help us find a life of greater productivity and meaning. As he puts it: "That's the great prize of surviving crisis, whatever its cause. That it's not just about getting your old life back … it's a chance to discover a life that was better than it was before."
