Senior Managing Director & Senior Advisor, Qatar

Neil Daugherty is a Senior Managing Director at Teneo Blue Rubicon and was the Managing Director of Blue Rubicon Qatar until moving back to London in January 2017. Neil has 17 years’ experience of corporate and brand communications and reputation management, working with blue chip organisations on campaigns with strong or contentious political dimensions (energy security, runway expansion). He has advised clients around the world at all levels of the energy value chain, from upstream exploration, to LNG production and shipping, to downstream lubricants and petrochemicals businesses. Neil has worked in Qatar since 2007, developing global communications strategies for a number of high profile energy, infrastructure and sports clients. He has extensive sports experience having worked for major sports governing bodies, think tanks and sports charities in the UK. As a Manchester United season ticket holder, 2013 / 14 was an excellent time to emigrate from the UK to Qatar. Before joining Blue Rubicon, Neil worked for Hill & Knowlton, after graduating from Pembroke College, Cambridge. He continues to advise clients in Qatar and the Gulf, from London.
