Debate Facilitation, Public Speaking, Campaigning
Healthy, robust and constructive debates
covering welfare reforms; the history of the Social Security system in Britain; the evolution of the state 'safety net' and the recent seismic changes; and the current political climate.
Your views can contribute to policy change within the national political parties, thereby influencing future reforms for the next generation.
Dynamic and inspirational public speaking
on the impact of austerity on the sick and disabled; the dismantling of the welfare state; recommendations for political policy change; and how to manage the issues of privatisation within public transport.
I am currently providing sessions to encourage dialogue about why the Labour Party lost the 2019 General Election and the lessons we can learn.
Engaging and influential campaigning
on all aspects of social justice, anti-poverty, and social responsibility, using social media as a platform for change.
I share my wealth of knowledge and experience gained from campaigning for better public transport in the North; for youth provision in the Calder Valley; for the Government to tackle the climate crisis; for the rights of vulnerable young people within the local authority system; and for the Labour Party in local and national elections.
I provide consultancy on effective campaigning, and leadership in tackling social injustices.
Engage in healthy and constructive debate about the history of the welfare state, how it has evolved in a modern and ever-changing political climate, and how it should look in the future.
Have you ever wanted to debate the impact of Universal Credit with your peers but not felt confident?
Do you think the welfare state should not be the ‘safety net’ it once was?
Do you think work pays?
Do you want to see the introduction of a universal basic income?
Do you think Britain’s welfare state has created a dependency culture?
Discuss the history of the social security system in Britain, the evolution of the state safety net, the seismic changes that have taken place in the recent political climate, and have your say about how you want to influence the future for the next generation.
Debate results can be used to inform policy change within the national political parties.
Debate sessions are for any organisation who feels it would be beneficial for themselves or their staff in influencing their views for change.
Sessions are 2-3 hours. Any collective agreements are typed up and submitted after the debate.
I provide talks and consultations to a wide range of professionals and organisations across a variety of fields about the campaigns I am involved in e.g. how I founded Northern Resist, how I founded Reach4ward, the impact of austerity, how to pursue complaints with local authorities etc.
I am experienced in speaking to the press and writing articles for national newspapers and online sources, sharing my views and experiences of highly important topics affected by privatisation and the significant changes within the economic climate since 2010.
