We all rely on our influence to get things done. Every time we meet a student, colleague or member of the senior management team we draw on our experience and skill to change hearts and minds.

What to expect

We are delighted to announce that Mary Creagh MP, the Chair of the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) will be one of the Keynote Speakers at Influence! 2019.

As Chair of the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), she provides a leading voice on the direction of the UK's environmental policy, with key interventions in the past year on plastic pollution, fashion, green finance, air pollution, flooding and heatwaves.

In her position as MP for Wakefield, Mary has played an integral role on discussions around children's diets, scalding and genocide prevention.
