Vikki Slade

Find me on

Vikki is a Cratus Associate that supports projects relating to the climate emergency, whether it is supporting local authorities to implement their climate plans or advising developers on meeting the aspirations of Net Zero Homes and Renewable Energy Provision.

Having been the leader of a large unitary council with a complex political make-up, she is able to bring considerable experience to our work with local authorities in terms of political engagement and the development of strategic communications, improved governance and partnership working.

Vikki is now the leader of the opposition in her council and specialises in scrutiny, environment and retail issues. Prior to working for Cratus, she had a career in the charity sector where she was responsible for fundraising and prospect research. She also worked in campaigns and communications for her Member of Parliament and was selected to fight three general elections herself, building a solid personal brand around community leadership.

Get in touch and talk to Vikki about climate, energy, local government reorganisation and council leadership.
