Patrick is a multi-skilled communications specialist, with over twenty years’ experience in high profile media relations, crisis communications, campaign strategy and reputation management.

Initially trained and employed as a journalist, Patrick began his public relations career in Whitehall, promoting and explaining Government policy under both Conservative and Labour administrations.

Prior to joining Weber Shandwick, Patrick was The Prince of Wales’ Press Secretary for over ten years. He played a key role in rejuvenating HRH’s reputation, introducing The Duchess of Cornwall to a sceptical public and protecting Princes William’s and Harry’s privacy. By challenging and changing the way in which the Royal Household communicated, and by embracing new forms of social media, Patrick was able to promote more effectively the work and role of The Prince and his immediate family, as well as their associated organisations. He led the multi-stakeholder communications teams for the 2005 and 2011 royal weddings and 24 official tours to 37 countries.

In 2010’s New Year’s Honours, Patrick was made a Lieutenant of the Victorian Order (LVO) in recognition of his work for The Prince of Wales.
