Background:

Having worked in public affairs and stakeholder engagement for six years, Sam has experience of delivering retail, commercial, residential and mixed-use schemes across the country. He is currently working with clients across Wandsworth, Lambeth, Kensington & Chelsea, Richmond, Westminster, Southwark and Bromley.

At Cascade, Sam oversees construction communications for Battersea Power Station whilst also supporting the ongoing programme of phased planning applications.

Working with South West London and St. George’s Mental Health NHS Trust, Sam managed the complex stakeholder and community engagement programme for the development of the Springfield Park Strategy.

Accredited with the Consultation Institute's Certificate of Professional Development, Sam has a strong interest in the use of social media and digital platforms in public consultations and community engagement.

Career highlight:

Successfully overturning an officer recommendation for refusal by coordinating a community-led grassroots campaign to lobby local councillors through social media and online petitions. Over 100 residents attended the committee meeting to support the application and the project was subsequently shortlisted for the 'Community Engagement Campaign of the Year' at the 2015 PR Moment Awards.

Clients past & present:

Columbia Threadneedle Investments | South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust | Battersea Power Station Development Company | Transport for London | Melford Capital | Countryside Properties | London Square | Linkcity | Auriens

Interests:

Quite a few sports, particularly running, cycling, rugby and hiking (if it counts). Strong interest in current affairs and the media, especially the role of social media as a modern news source. I’m a big foodie and enjoy the odd bit of baking.
