Mark Borkowski

Spear’s Review

One of the country’s leading media analysts on topics of crisis and reputation, Mark Borkowski’s analysis of the Prince Andrew/Jeffrey Epstein scandal was highly influential in shaping public understanding of the crisis facing the royal family. With public shaming of well-known voices for undesirable viewpoints – or ‘cancel culture’ – a developing area in the crisis and reputation industry, Borkowski’s services are more relevant than ever.

‘We know it is possible to “uncancel” a person or brand, but it requires time, patience, commitment to change and careful management of communications,’ he says.

Borkowski wields unrivalled relationships with decision-makers, opinion formers and media influencers.
