Liberal Democrats

Barbara Gibson

Liberal Democrat MEP for the East of England

Barbara is a lecturer for Birkbeck, University of London, focused on intercultural communication and global business. With more than 25 years’ experience as a business communication professional, she has worked with companies worldwide, and is a past international chair of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). She is immediate past-president of SIETAR UK (the Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research) and a past International Group Chair of CIPR (the Chartered Institute of Public Relations). She completed her PhD in Intercultural Communication in 2014.

A true internationalist, Barbara believes the UK needs a more outward-looking approach in order to compete in the globalised world. A native of Oklahoma, USA, Barbara has lived in the UK since 2002 and became a citizen in 2011.

Barbara said, “Brexit is a failure. People want a way out of the mess created by the Government. This election is an opportunity to send a powerful message that the people demand a final say, and the opportunity to stay in the EU. As the largest pro-European party in England, the Liberal Democrats are the best positioned to make that happen."

Barbara lives in Welwyn, Hertfordshire, with her husband Andrew, a teacher, and their two dogs.
