Speech Topics

Leading Bravely and Not Getting Cancelled: How does anyone existing in a public roll express a personal point of view without being ‘cancelled’ or ‘branded’ a transphobe, racist, ageist, homophobic or sexist etc? And how do we have real conversations without danger?

Understanding Trans: How can we understand the debates around trans people without hurting ourselves or others by a parent of a trans person.

Being the Best Possible LGBT+ Ally: How can non-LGBT+ people be a strong and effective ally?

Resilience in the Time of Corona: How we can build our mental health strength and resilience for times of global crisis and beyond.

Anti-Semitism – Reality and Reactions: What really happened inside the Labour Party under Corbyn? What was it like to be a Jewish communal leader and a member of the Labour Party over the past 5 years. What can we expect now? What is the real data on anti-Semitism in the UK rather than the myths?

Why Interfaith is Defunct: The times of tea and samosas is over. We need to have real conversations about hard topics. We need to respond to the high levels of fragmentation, tension and separation between religious communities in the UK.
