Illumination is a full-service communications consultancy run by James Stibbs.

James has worked in communications and policy for nearly 20 years, both on client and agency sides (so he knows how it feels…)

Before starting Illumination, he led the high-performing communications team at the Sport and Recreation Alliance, the membership body for the governing bodies of sport and recreation (The FA, the RFU, British Cycling etc).

There, he ran successful national campaigns, coordinating digital, PR, marketing, events, publishing and public affairs activities for 320 sport and recreation bodies.

Before that he worked in a senior role for one of the world’s leading independent communications agencies, APCO Worldwide, advising blue chip and FTSE clients on corporate communications, policy and public affairs.

James is proud to be chair of the Sports Group of the PRCA, the membership body for communications professionals.

At Illumination, we handpick teams to meet client needs, working with a network of some of the very best talent in the UK and beyond – so whether, it’s a communications strategy, marketing execution, a publishing job or simply arms and legs to help you when you are busy, we provide you with the right people for the job.
