A year has whizzed by and I’m halfway through my two years on the Clore Social Leadership Programme. I look in the mirror and know I’ve morphed into a different person so here’s a letter of advice to the old me of 12 months ago.

I went into the Clore Social Fellowship with a definite monkey on my back. One year into the Fellowship, has it loosened its grip?

Proponents of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) use a simple formula to argue for the deal: more open trade leads to more growth which leads to more jobs.
One of the many reasons why this is problematic is that it says nothing about how projected impacts of TTIP - 0.5% growth and 0.7% job dislocation across the EU - will be distributed.

Down a small side street near Liverpool Street Station sits Sandy’s Row Synagogue, a wood-panelled world that has existed for over 150 years. It used to hold one of the largest Jewish congregations in East London in 1881 and though the congregation has dwindled it is still an important place of worship and community.

How self-esteem and assertiveness are part of the delicate balance of being a great leader.
People in leadership positions have high levels of self-esteem right? After enjoying a course that examined the relationship between self-esteem and influencing I’m not so sure.

The social sector is full individuals with unparalleled compassion for and dedication to the improvement of society. That dedication, however, often leaves little room for reflection or horizon scanning. Unlike the private sector, the social sector struggles to find the time and resources to provide good training, the creative space to develop new thinking or the ‘fail fast’ philosophy to prototype new ideas. Not only does the nature of the sector generate little appetite for a culture of risk taking, but social impact measures leave little room for learning through failure.

A tech social enterprise I co-founded ran out of money. It was my fault. And I had to make four people redundant. I’ve never had to deal with that before, and I was overwhelmed with shame and guilt.
I’ve morphed from puppy dog to hang dog over the past few months. At the third and final residential for the Clore Social Leadership programme, I arrived feeling pretty low. It’s been a tough, old summer.

Last week I received a phone call at 8pm asking me if I’d like to appear on Newsnight at 10.45pm. I was invited to respond to Teresa May’s speech on Banning Orders for extremist and other counterterrorism measures. Our social enterprise ConnectJustice often deals with issues of extremism and counterterrorism, particularly its impact on communities. I had a few internal conversations as to whether I was prepared to speak in front of an audience of 600,000, but despite my nervousness I said yes.
