Leadership and the housing crisis

Posted on March 30, 2015
Posted by Njoki Yaxley
Fellowship: 2014

I recently spent a day in the company of a group of CEOs, Chairs and leaders from the social housing world at the Leadership Summit 2015- ‘Leading by design’. I went there, by the kind invitation of the National Housing Federation who are my sponsors on the Clore Social Leadership Programme. I hoped to hear what leaders in social housing thought could be done to stem the tide of the UK housing crisis and how we could better influence the political scene, particularly with a looming general election. The event proved to be highly illuminating.

Taking a social bite out of business

Posted on March 13, 2015

Fellowship: 2014

Jane Bruce has decided many charities are just too shy after spending time with social success story Social Bite.

Over a year ago, I walked into the doctors surgery and had a conversation that still sends a chill down my spine. I went to see my GP, something I rarely do, because my closest friends had encouraged me to go and get help. I didn't know what was wrong with me but I was clear that all was not well.

Creating Spoken Truths: It's research, but not as we know it

Posted on March 4, 2015
Posted by David Russell
Fellowship: 2013

When I first considered what to do with the blank canvas for my research, which is presented to us all at the start of the Fellowship, I was initially struck by decision-paralysis. The multitude of research topics, as well as forms of presenting that research, almost made for too much choice!

'I Haven't Seen a Drop, Never Mind a Trickle': Economics and TTIP, the View From Bradford

Posted on December 11, 2014
Posted by Ruth Bergan
Fellowship: 2013

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.
