Liz Perkins has experience of working across the national press from the Daily Telegraph to the Sunday Times. She is the night news editor of the Daily Express, where alongside her role she successfully changed the law through the award-nominated End This Injustice campaign that led the Government to pledge to overhaul the Family Court through the Domestic Abuse Bill. It led her to offer advice in a compliance webinar to the financial industry in Dubai on domestic abuse.
She also wrote an exclusive around claims of sexism and misogyny in the Welsh Rugby Union in the Daily Mail. Liz is also a regular contributor on Times Radio and is award-winning.
As an alumna of the University of Oxford’s Said Business School, she graduated with a postgraduate diploma in executive organisational leadership, which focused on #strategy, #culture, #resilience, merger and acquisitions and #strategicleadership of organisations and focused her thesis on the ever-changing world of the media.
She is previously the defence reporter for the South Wales Evening Post/Wales Online where she regularly reported from Afghanistan between 2008 and 2014. During her reporting stints in Helmand Province, she spent time on the ground in Garmsir with 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards (the Welsh Cavalry) in December 2008, compiling video footage, taking photographs, writing stories and blogging about her experiences.
