Jo-Anne Nadler is public affairs practitioner with expertise drawn from working in and around Westminster since the 1990’s. She has been on both sides of political communications, first as a party insider, handling media for the Conservative Party during John Major’s leadership before moving into journalism as a political reporter for BBC Westminster, where she worked on the BBC 1’s former flagship political show ‘On the Record’, and later in print as an author of successful books about the Conservative Party, including the biography of William Hague.
Jo-Anne is an experienced programme maker and broadcaster and since leaving the BBC has become a commentator with frequent appearances on national television and radio discussing political affairs. She has guested on high profile programmes including Question Time, Today and Newsnight. Jo-Anne has contributed articles to most national newspapers including the Guardian, Sunday Telegraph and Spectator.
In recent years Jo-Anne has worked as a public affairs consultant, for agencies and with her own clients. As a Conservative councillor in the London Borough of Wandsworth, until 2014, Jo-Anne gained invaluable insight into the planning process in the capital’s most high profile regeneration project. She developed that experience to build a practice specialising in planning and associated development issues working with high profile clients to achieve positive outcomes for their schemes. Jo-Anne has also worked on successful national campaigns achieving policy concessions for a charity consortium, an innovative provider of care homes and the private healthcare sector.
