Sean Worth co-founded WPI in 2014 with Nick Faith and leads work on policy analysis and political engagement. Originally positioning WPI as a cross between a think tank and research institute, their venture quickly developed a strong reputation for producing research-based campaigns, content and strategic consultancy. Worth previously spent a decade working in politics, latterly as a Downing Street special adviser in the coalition government, where he worked across a range of domestic policy areas and Whitehall departments. Prior to government, Worth was head of the Conservative party’s policy unit and worked for the party through two general elections. His industry experience includes senior roles at Quiller Consultants and MHP, advising on government relations and managing policy and regulatory change.
