Commentator and Communicator


This year I am graduating with a First Class degree from Oxford, working at one of the world’s leading communications firms, and launching Wales’ first all-encompassing digital graduate network.

Theo Davies-Lewis

I’m Theo, a 21-year old communications professional currently working at Finsbury Communications in London.

Growing up in Llanelli in a Welsh-speaking family, I had the immense privilege of having a fulfilling and fun childhood on the site of my great-grandfather’s family floristry business, still run today by the Lewis’.

Through my family’s hard-working values and working-class roots, from a very young age I had an incredibly strong work ethic in school. I was educated through the medium of Welsh up to the age of 13, before I won a scholarship to Llandovery College and then St Michael’s School in Llanelli.

I achieved 3A* at A-Level, and went up to Oxford University to study BA Archaeology and Anthropology. I’ve just finished my Finals, and achieved a First Class grade.

Oxford was a place where I developed my vast communications abilities. During my time at the university, I was Broadcast and News Editor for the Cherwell newspaper; a contributor to The Oxford Student; founder of the Station Manager and student radio, the now-flourishing Oxide Radio; a JCR committee member in college, with responsibility for budgets and student committees; President of the Oxford University Archaeological Society; the Communications Officer for the fantastic First Generation Students group; and finally, the founder and President of the Oxford University Media Society - an organisation I grew to become the most exciting and prominent forums for debate and discussion in Oxford.

These experiences have been very valuable for me: I am somebody who is able to deliver professional services in communications, writing and broadcasting to an extremely high standard and to tight deadlines.

At the moment I am keeping myself busy with regular punditry, which I usually do on politics, business and education for BBC Cymru Wales. Aside from this and my work at Finsbury, I am leading Darogan Talent to develop Wales’ employment sector, writing a book on Welsh identity, and developing a new anthropology blog series on London’s tube stations.

If this sounds remotely interesting, or anything else on this website catches your eye, please get in touch.

Diolch yn fawr.
