"Craig is a clear, incisive and thoughtful speaker, with an insightful perspective on the social enterprise and not for profit sector.  He shared his thoughts with us at the start of our recent strategic planning session.  He was honest, challenging, and credible and his input got us all in a place to think realistically, and creatively about our organisation and the opportunities and challenges it faces."

Liz Hill-Smith

Chair of Home-Start UK.

"Craig has spoken at a number of our events over the years. He’s controversial but informed; opinionated but humble; experienced but eager to learn from those around him. Don’t ask Craig to speak if you want everyone to leave feeling comfortable, or in agreement. Like all the best speakers, he starts conversations, asks questions of us all, and leaves us all asking questions about how in future we are going to make a bigger difference."

Karl Wilding,

Director of Policy and Volunteering NCVO
