LONDON, 11 August 2022: Strategic communications consultancy Aurora announces a senior hire to add to its leadership team. Sebastian Stokes joins as Director to concentrate on accelerating growth across Aurora’s three practices, focusing on diversification and digital. The appointment comes at an important time for Aurora, as the agency sets its eyes on further expanding services and expertise to clients.

Seb has run SHED Communications for five years, a communications consultancy which specialises in consumer health and patient engagement both in the UK and globally. A key area of focus is digital and social media innovation, with clients including the World Health Organization, Pfizer, the British Coffee Association and several FMCG brands.

Seb says: “I’m incredibly excited to be joining the Aurora team, particularly as their ambition really stands out in the industry. The health space has evolved rapidly in the past year for obvious reasons and Aurora is exceptionally well positioned to deliver insightful, data-driven and creative communications – exactly where I want to add value for client organisations.”

Aurora advances

Aurora has seen a busy year to date, including the promotion of Chris Bath to Managing Director, a growing team and significant new business wins. A larger Farringdon office to aid collaboration is also on the way. Chris says: “We’ve had a positive start to 2021, including client wins ranging from med tech and devices to some of the most exciting pharma innovations, and importantly we have a vision to be bold, brave and brilliant in everything that we do over the next few years. It’s the ideal time to add Seb’s strategic and digital skills to the senior team.”
