Eben Black was a national newspaper journalist for the best part of 20 years, working in the Houses of Parliament. He worked, in order, for thePress Association, theNational News Agency,The Sun,Today, theNews of the World(before they invented phone hacking, Your Honour) and theSunday Times. He had the dubious distinction of being the Political Editor of theNews of the World, and the even more dubious one of being deputy on theSunday Times.
He moved from journalism into lobbying and PR with the country’s largest law firm, DLA Piper, where he advised clients on reputation management and political engagement. He now runs EruditePR, a PR, public affairs and lobbying agency.
