Just back from a weekend in Zurich where I was speaking at the Campaigning Summit Switzerland. What I found quite remarkable about this event was their success in attracting participants from across an array of sectors including both the not for profit and private sectors. It was really good to see people coming together discussing ideas from different perspectives but all united in their interest in working for change.
Once I had finished speaking I was really interested in the different people who came to see with follow up questions including NGO, banking and commercial people. It was a special event, and it made me wonder why we don’t see similar such cross sector events on campaigning in the UK?
