About me

Welcome to my blog. Im always looking for new ways of bringing people together to build campaigns. Im always amazed by the energy and passion of the people I meet and the different skills they bring to making change happen - the ideas we try out, the campaigns we work on, the relationships we build together. I want to share those stories with you. I hope you enjoy them!

Can the public services deliver the new progressive consensus?

We've a fantastic line up at our rally at this year's Labour conference in Bournemouth. The premiere rally where the real debate will take place at this year's party conference. Held jointly with UNISON and Tribune on the Sunday evening in Marquee 3, this energetic and lively meeting will be addressed by Ed Miliband, Angela Eagle, Neal Lawson, Dave Prentis, Polly Toynbee and Paul O'Brien - free food and drink is of course also provided.

We need local public services to lead by example more than by authority. They must mobilise involvement and work in partnership with all those who have a stake in the community. We therefore need local partners to be ambitious and risk-taking, brave and courageous in providing the necessary glue for social cohesion; communicating a clearer vision of how they want to improve the quality of life chances for their residents and enabling its citizens to design and improve their services and greater accountability for a wider range of people to scrutinise the powers-that-be. We need local champions to come together to bring clarity and edge to the local conversation – that choreograph a local narrative that’s inclusive and community-driven.

when? Sunday, September 23, 2007 between 6:30pm - 8:30pm
where? Marquee 3, Highliffe Hotel, Bournemouth
