Deborah Kingsley

Communications Director

A 25-year background in challenging business environments has given me the skills, tenacity and focus to help businesses grow by developing a clear strategy for their marketing and communications.

Starting out with Marks & Spencer on their management trainee scheme, I moved to the Law Society where I cut my teeth in parliamentary lobbying and political strategy. From there, I was headhunted to the rail industry as Communications Director for Connex. This role was the backdrop for the complete immersion in national media relations, marketing, communications and stakeholder engagement, where I was responsible for the whole breadth of stakeholders, from a unionised workforce and government departments to passenger groups and a tough press audience. After a stint in Whitehall at the Department of Health and two years in the USA with French environmental services specialist Veolia, I returned to the UK in 2004 to set up KPC.

Now, I use all my skills and experience to work with managing directors, senior leaders and departmental heads to bring about effective, measurable change to both internal communications and external marketing. As a non-stop learner, I love immersing myself in each of my clients’ businesses, working alongside clients who are looking for support to deliver key insights, build sustainable strategies and demonstrate a real return on investment.
