After completing a Master’s degree, Sean worked as a freelance consultant on an ad-hoc basis at a London-based natural resource consultancy, operating in the peacebuilding and stakeholder engagement sector. Among other projects, Sean prepared a briefing paper on natural resource-related tensions in Somalia, which was subsequently published.

Sean joined Planning Potential in February 2018 and has since provided clients with a wide range of communications services. His experience includes developing communications strategies for a variety of audiences, organising and attending public consultation events, engaging with community groups and political stakeholders, as well as providing post-submission support. His highlights so far include helping to secure planning permission for hundreds of much-needed homes in the South-East of England, as well as playing a key role in winning support for the expansion of a challenger bank.

Outside of work, Sean has recently moved to London from the home counties, and can be found exploring the parks and streets of South London, probably whilst reading a current affairs blog!
