Sheila Mitchell

Sheila, who is responsible for the UK’s biggest public sector marketing programme, has had a vintage year. Under her direction its marketing has won more than 40 industry awards (including IPA Gold) in the past 12 months. Mitchell has had a busy time of late.

In April 2013, public-health marketing was pulled out of the Department of Health and placed in new executive agency, Public Health England. The move has enabled her to focus more on evidence-based marketing and building closer links with local authorities.

Mitchell’s year started well, with stunning results coming from her bowel cancer campaign. Against a backdrop of government controls on marketing spend, the fact that her activities continue to receive funding is testament to their effectiveness.
