Wales’ first campaigns consultancy, Task2 launches today. Led by multi-award winning Alison Goldsworthy, the consultancy fills a gap in Welsh market providing support to businesses and charities who want to work with their supporters and customers to achieve change.
Alison who was named as one of PR Week’s 29 under 29 in 2010 said;
“With this month’s successful referendum result, this is a really exciting time for Welsh democracy. Wales already has successful public affairs and PR agencies but Task2 offers something different. We will work with supporters to motivate them to support an organisation as it calls on a Government for change.”
Task2 is well linked into the Westminster and European political scenes with Alison also joining Biss Lancaster owned Apex Communications as an Associate Consultant. Director and former Special Advisor to Cabinet Minister Jack Straw, Ed Owen said;
“Although based in Wales, Alison will be joining a strong team here in Westminster. With her impressive understanding of devolution and the Liberal Democrats alongside her background in campaigning she will add something new. After the successful yes vote in last week’s referendum the Welsh Assembly becomes a more streamlined, more attractive place to influence change.”
Task2 has already been helping The Haemophilia Society with their campaigning work in Wales on the contaminated blood disaster. Press and Communications Manager at The Haemophilia Society, Dan Farthing said;
“Alison’s thorough knowledge and understanding of the Welsh political and campaigning environment helped us achieve much greater impact on the contaminated blood campaign. I know The Society and our supporters are looking forward to continuing to work with her”
