The British Academy is an institution that exists to recognise achievements in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and since 2017 I have worked with the organisation on a number of initiatives to boost their prize portfolio. Central to this is the £25,000 non-fiction book prize, the Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding. As well as consulting on the restructuring of the Prize, I have led the communications strategy to take this important literary prize to a wider national and international audience and to significantly increase engagement with publishers.
