Eva Barboni

CEO and Founder

Eva Barboni is a communications and campaign strategist with experience managing projects across five continents, in often complex and demanding environments. Since her first national campaign in 2003-2004 on behalf of US Presidential candidate Howard Dean, Eva has developed and implemented innovative communications and campaign strategies for a diverse range of clients including political candidates and parties, government ministries, large non-profit and philanthropic organisations, multilateral organisations, and multinational companies.

She has extensive global experience and has managed multilingual projects in numerous countries–from Afghanistan to Zambia. She prides herself on working closely with clients and partners to develop context-specific strategies that deliver results.

Her political campaign experience has ranged from the local to the international levels. Mayoral and national-level campaign victories have included Boris Johnson’s re-election campaign for Mayor of London in 2012, Nana Akufo-Addo’s campaign for President of Ghana in 2016, and Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign for President of Nigeria in 2011. She has also successfully managed campaigns for the leadership of international organisations.

She has brought her campaigning and communications expertise to clients working across a wide range of sectors, including education, gender equality, public health, sustainability, and peace and security.

Her work includes a strong focus on advancing women’s representation in politics. Specific projects in this space include providing campaign skills training for first-time women candidates in Afghanistan and working with the women’s wings of political parties and independent candidates in Lebanon.

She is featured as an expert in Women's Media Center's SheSource database, and she regularly speaks at conferences and events about politics, campaigning, and gender equality. She is also an experienced facilitator, regularly developing and running in-person and virtual workshops on a range of topics including communications, crisis management, leadership, digital engagement, and campaigning.

She also provides strategic counsel to corporate clients, often working closely with CXOs to manage their reputations and shape the narrative on the issues that matter most to their businesses.

Eva has a B.A. from Swarthmore College, where she studied Political Science. Outside work, Eva is an amateur Muay Thai fighter, enjoying the discipline and focus it requires and the respect between opponents.
