Alastair Campbell

Alastair Campbell

Writer, Communicator and Strategist

Alastair Campbell is a writer, communicator and strategist best known for his role as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications and strategy. Still active in politics and campaigns in Britain and overseas, he now splits his time between writing, speaking, broadcasting, charities and consultancy.

Though Alastair left a full-time role with the Blair Government in 2003, he returned for the subsequent three general elections to help first Blair, then Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband. He also advised the Better Together campaign against independence for Scotland, and the Remain side in the EU referendum campaign. He is on the Advisory Board of Portland PR, and in addition independently acts as an advisor to governments, businesses, charities, sports organisations and high profile individuals.

Alastair is an ambassador for several charities, including Mind, Rethink and Alcohol Concern. He is patron of Maytree and Kidstime, and also a Global Ambassador for Australians for Mental Health. Alastair co-founded the UK all-party campaign, Equality4MentalHealth. In November 2017, Campbell was awarded an honorary fellowship of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in recognition of his leadership role in breaking down the stigma surrounding mental illness, and in fighting for better services.

He has been Humanitas Visting Professor on media at Cambridge University, and has been honoured by both University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin and University College Cork for his contribution to the Northern Ireland Peace Process.

Alastair has written seventeen books in the past fourteen years, including ten volumes of diaries, four novels, a Number 1 best-selling analysis of what it takes to win in politics, business and sport, Winners and How They Succeed, and two personal memoirs on depression and the pursuit of happiness. His latest, Living Better: How I Learned to Survive Depression, was also a Sunday Times best-seller.
