emmaowen480The annual compilation, created by the industry’s publication, PRWeek, highlights the country’s most influential communications professionals.

This year’s Power Book includes more than 350 names from the worlds of agency and in-house PR, including the publication’s analysis of who are the UK’s most powerful PR players in the consumer and brand, sport, entertainment, corporate, public, politics and charity sectors.

Emma has been in her current role at Lego UK for over five years, and has some notable successes under her belt. These include the 12 metre high Lego Christmas Tree at St Pancras Station, the Lego Dress for London Fashion Week, a walk-through snow globe, the PR campaign surrounding The Lego Movie, The Channel 4 documentary and most recently the Santa Express master build for Christmas 2015 in the Covent Garden Piazza. Emma has been in the PR industry for over 20 years working both at agencies and in-house.

Emma Owen commented: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have been included in the Power Book 2016 and am incredibly grateful for the recognition received for some of my work whilst at the Lego Group. Communications is a challenging profession but exceptionally rewarding when you see the reactions to some really inspired campaigns such as the Santa Express train or a child coming home to find his bedroom decked from floor to ceiling in Lego Star Wars paraphernalia.”

The 2016 PRWeek Power Book will be available for subscribers to view online from Thursday 3rd December at PRWeek.com. The directory will also be published in the December/January issue of PRWeek magazine.
