HOUSTON, TX—SenateSHJ, one of the leading public relations and public affairs firms in New Zealand Australia, has added strategist and writer Liz Alexander as special counsel, based in Houston, Tex., expanding its footprint to the US and providing a resource for thought leadership programming.

Alexander has previously co-authored a book, Leading Thought, with SenateSHJ partner Craig Badings. The 2012 book focused on thought leadership as did their blog at

A former journalist, Alexander has worked for a wide range of industry and mainstream magazines in the UK, including British Airways’ Business Life Magazine. She has more than 25 years of global experience, working with individuals and organizations as a consulting co-author, and has written 11 non-fiction books and co-authored four more, including
Access to Asia: Your Multicultural Guide to Building Trust, Inspiring Respect and Creating Long-Lasting Business Relationships.

According to SenateSHJ chief executive Neil Green, “Most businesspeople write, or engage a ‘ghostwriter’ to write books that communicate what they already know. Liz’s talent is being able to work with business leaders to produce highly differentiated, thought leading books that will successfully impact the market, industry and/or society as a whole. She not only helps aspiring authors prepare high-quality, valuable non-fiction manuscripts but she coaches them on how to maximise the business opportunity.”
