Independent consultant, Jane Acton

Jane Acton


I am a London-based independent PR consultant with more than 25 years’ experience in cultural communications.

My expertise has been honed in the fields of arts and culture – from corporate comms for the publishing industry to strategic counsel for international arts prizes. I have helped to launch prestigious museums and galleries, publicised exhibitions and managed high profile anniversary campaigns and international news stories.

Whether working with individuals or organisations, my campaigns are carefully tailored to build profile and meet business objectives. This is achieved through strategic media relations, creative initiatives, thought-leadership and partnerships.

For larger projects, I team up with a network of highly experienced associates who are all experts in their respective fields.

Jane has been instrumental in helping us to raise the profile of our little-known but critically important book prize, the Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding. As well as developing and delivering a highly successful communications campaign, she has also helped to drive the overall strategy for the prize and has played a vital role as expert advisor to the jury of academics and public figures. The Prize is on a much stronger footing now as a result of our partnership with Jane. Aside from her abundant skills and expertise, she is also a joy to work with – we are delighted to have found her!
