Onclusive, a leading global provider of tools and services for comms pros, has announced the launch of its new election communications podcast, Politicomms.

This bi-weekly podcast is hosted by industry experts Jack Richards, Stephen Canning, and Elena Campbell. Politicomms is set to offer listeners deep insights and engaging discussions on the latest trends and strategies in public affairs, politics, and communication.

Jack Richards is Global Head of Integrated and Field Marketing at Onclusive. This is his third stint in the industry, having previously worked as the Field Marketing team lead at Talkwalker, and Global Marketing Manager at CARMA. Jack is affiliated with the Liberal Democrats. He has acted as a communications consultant for various constituencies and candidates, and supported on numerous campaigns. He is still a party supporter despite not renewing his membership when current leader, Ed Davey, was elected.

Stephen Canning is a seasoned communications professional with an extensive background in public relations and corporate affairs. His experience includes time spent at professional services firm PwC, McDonalds, and serving as Head of External Affairs at a large UK charity. In addition to being a councillor in Essex for a decade, Stephen has held various roles in the Conservative Party, including working for a Cabinet Minister, on the 2015 election campaign in Conservative Party HQ, and on Theresa May’s leadership campaign. Stephen also served on the board of youth political engagement charity My Life My Say.

Elena Campbell is a consultant at leading integrated communications firm, Atticus Partners. A public affairs professional, Campbell has had two short stints working for the Labour Party, and indeed for Kier Starmer himself - firstly on his general election policy team, and later as his constituency assistant. Campbell sits as a member of the PRCA Next Gen group.

Onclusive says it will feature a diverse range of voices from top agencies, political spheres, and public affairs firms, providing listeners with a well-rounded perspective on current election communications. 

Commenting on the launch of the podcast, Onclusive’s Jack Richards said:

“There is no busier field in the media than politics. Especially so during an election period. Through Politicomms, Onclusive’s purpose is threefold - using technology to sift through the noise and make sense of it all, leveraging our tools to help PR pros with the stuff that matters at this time, and adopting data to move away from hearsay and to a point of true public feeling.”

The podcast aims to be a vital resource for professionals seeking to stay informed and ahead in the dynamic field of political communications.
