Advisor to David Cameron on Europe (2016)

Architect of UK Government's Digital Economy Bill

Founding member of European Council on Foreign Relations

Daniel Korski CBE has been at the forefront and front lines of international and domestic politics in the last fifteen years. He was a close adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron part both of the EU referendum campaign and the European negotiations that preceded the vote. And as the Deputy Head of Policy in No 10, Daniel was a key figure in the Cameron administration.

Previously he worked as an adviser to Andrew Mitchell MP, the former Conservative Chief Whip, and for the British member of the European Commission, during which time he participated in the Iran nuclear negotiations.

But he started his career far away from the diplomatic halls, as an adviser to Lord Paddy Ashdown, the then-UN High Representative of Bosnia. After a short stint working for Parliament’s Defence Select Committee he  deployed to war-torn Kabul, Afghanistan, in 2005 to advise President Hamid Karzai’s government; and in 2007 he ran the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Basra in Iraq, overseeing the post-conflict reconstruction of Basra province during the height of the conflict.

Returning from Iraq, Daniel undertook a secondment to the U.S. State Department under then US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. During the Libyan conflict he again went to the front lines, embedding with the rebels to visit Benghazi and report on the conflict for the Spectator Magazine  Away from the front lines, 2008 Korski helped establish the bi-partisan think tank the European Council on Foreign Relations, Europe’s largest pan-European think tank.”

He was a central part both of the EU referendum campaign and the European negotiations that preceded the vote. As the Deputy Head of Policy in No 10, Daniel also oversaw a number of key digital initiatives including GDS, TechCity, Pitch10, and the D 5. He helped make the UK a centre for fintech, creating Innovate Finance, and oversaw rule changes to enable the sharing economy to prosper. He was also the chief architect of the government’s Digital Economy Bill.
