Head of Political & Stakeholder Engagement

The full story

Gabriel has advised clients since 2003 on a wide range of complex and sensitive projects that include housing schemes in both urban and rural locations, major urban extensions, town centre regeneration, estate regeneration, hospital redevelopment and major changes to a university campus.

His approach focuses on building strong working relationships with local politicians, resident and businesses throughout the course of each project. He believes that regular dialogue with these and other stakeholders increases understanding and is the best way working through issues. This enables him to present clients with a comprehensive view of local feedback and chart a clear path towards winning political and community support.

Prior to becoming a consultant he worked in Parliament for a number of MPs. He has been politically active across London.
