Michael Prescott

Group Director of Communications
BT Group

The former Sunday Times political editor took on one of the UK’s most demanding PR roles when he joined BT in early 2010, overseeing the company’s 170-country communications operation. That move followed a nine-year career at Weber Shandwick, where he led the firm’s public affairs and corporate communications divisions, winning Public Affairs News’ Agency of the Year award in 2009. In a 17-year career as a journalist, Prescott worked across local papers, national wire services and the BBC before spending a decade at the Sunday Times.
