Event Details

SMK’s masterclass and specialist workshop series invites highly experienced campaigners and others to share their knowledge and expertise about campaigning. These workshops provide detailed technical information and insight about strategies and tactics. The masterclasses and specialist workshops are designed to provide campaigners with:

  • Practical information and advice about effective campaigning tools and tactics.
  • Ideas and advice about how to overcome specific challenges facing their campaign.
  • A peer network of campaigners and an opportunity to learn from each other.

Campaigners are increasingly focusing their efforts on the practices and behaviours of companies and business. The last 12 months has seen campaigns to improve the employment conditions of staff at Sports Direct and others and national campaigns on corporate tax evasion. In this work shop we will explore ways in which campaigners can best influence companies and employers on their campaign goals.

Our expert speakers are:

-          Lisa Nathan and Mara Lilley, the campaigns assistant and campaigns manager from Share Action. Share Action have spent the last ten years building the movement for responsible investment. One of the charities most effective tactics is shareholder activism, which has been instrumental in changing the practices of BP, McDonalds, Marks and Spencer and many others.

-          Lola McEvoy, Campaigns and Communications Manager at the Living Wage Foundation. The Foundation is at the heart of the independent movement of businesses, organisations and people that campaign for the simple idea that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. The Foundation has influenced over 2,900 employers including Nestle, Aviva and GSK. Lola will also talk about the Foundation’s experience of the Living Wage being co-opted by the Government.
