We are delighted to announce that Andrew Adonis, Baron Adonis, former Secretary for Transport and Minister for Schools, will be our November supper club speaker. Lord Adonis will be speaking on the theme of charities, Chairs and campaigning.
Lord Adonis worked as an academic and a journalist before immersing in politics, recruited by Tony Blair in 1998 to the Number 10 Policy Unit, specialising in constitutional and educational policy. In 2005 he was appointed to the Government as Under Secretary for Education. Under Gordon Brown he was appointed Secretary of State for Transport.
After the 2010 General Election, Lord Adonis served as the Director of the Institute for Government, a non-partisan charity focused on increasing government effectiveness.
