Meet inspiring young leader Joel Meekison from Clark Communications

As an advocate and public relations adviser, Joel has worked with Directors, CEOs, Cabinet Secretaries, and sector leaders. His work first originated in human rights, as a leading advocate for better youth engagement by government and organisations and increased children’s rights in Scotland.

This experience led him to advise on a range of youth engagement projects and campaigns nationally and internationally, including hosting a policy roundtable at Scotland House, Brussels and authoring for the International Journal of Human Rights, before later working at UNICEF in 2021 to coordinate their high-profile World Children’s Day in Scotland.

Today he lives in Glasgow and works in public relations, consulting for a range of public sector and professional bodies. He currently serves as vice-chair on the board of the Scottish Child Law Centre, Chair of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Scotland’s Future Leaders Forum and as a senior account executive at public relations agency, Clark.

This podcast is hosted by IoD Scotland’s Nations Director, Catherine McWilliam, and Fife & Tayside committee Chair, Marlene Lowe.
