Inspiring leader set to address businesses who want to make a positive difference across their communities

AN inspiring leader with an international reputation for ‘connecting the unconnected’ is the guest speaker at a Lancashire networking event.

Dame Julia Cleverdon inspires individuals and organisations in challenged communities to work together for the common good.

She is the ideal choice to address the Fylde Coast Responsible Business Network where individuals and businesses come together to make a positive difference in communities across Blackpool and the Fylde Coast.

Julia is the keynote speaker at the group’s next meeting at Blackpool Football Club on November 9.

During her tenure as Chief Executive of Business in the Community from 1991 to 2007, Julia worked closely with the President HRH The Prince of Wales in building a movement of 850 member companies. She later served as Special Adviser to The Prince’s Charities and focused efforts on disadvantaged communities.

In 2015 Julia started her work in Blackpool and was instrumental in the creation of the Blackpool Pride of Place partnership, which she continues to serve as a Board member. Julia also chairs the ‘Claremont Project’, a neighbourhood approach which works with public sector organisations that develops shared ways of working to enable effective collaboration for the benefit of the community.

An ambassador for Blackpool’s annual International Women’s Day Festival, Co-founder of Step Up To Serve (#iwill), a campaign which was set up to make meaningful social action a part of life for young people across the UK, and Vice Patron of Teach First, Julia has pioneered efforts to address educational disadvantage.

She serves on the Careers and Enterprise Company and Youth Futures Foundation boards, is Deputy Chair of the Fair Education Alliance, and has just stepped down as Chair of the National Literacy Trust.

Julia also chairs Transform Society, which aims to inspire a generation towards public service.

Andy Anderson, Head of R&D at Victrex, and Chair of the Fylde Coast Responsible Business Network, said: “As we prepare to bring together the amazing business people we have across the Blackpool and Fylde Coast for our latest networking event we could not wish to have a more relevant and inspiring guest speaker than Julia.

“We are all very much looking forward to Julia’s visit and hope as many business people as possible from across the region are able to attend what promises to be a thought-provoking session.  The action we take from it will enable us to make even more of a positive impact across our communities.”
