Share Off the Record: Social Action Stories

Event Details


Year Here and Impact Hub Islington are thrilled to present a series of intimate conversations with some of Britain's most influential social activists. 

Join us on the candlelit top floor of the Torrens Street Hub in Angel for the inside scoop on social action from the people who know it best. Hearing from entrepreneurs, community pioneers and authors, Off the Record illuminates the journeys of an array of Britain's foremost social leaders. Revealing the state of play for social action in modern Britain, we'll dive deep into what enrages, inspires and excites the leaders of today.

Join us for a glass of wine, crackling conversation and an interview with: 


31st March – Josh MacAlister, Founder and CEO, Frontline.

Josh founded Frontline after teaching in a Greater Manchester school through the Teach First scheme and recognising the importance of great social work outside the school walls. While the scheme faced strong criticism from some, Josh, 27, has managed to secure government support and recruit over 100 participants in Frontline's first intake.

Josh will be interviewed by Miranda Dixon.


12th May – Roman Krznaric, Author

Roman is an author and philsopher. His latest book, Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution, has been praised by Brené Brown, Philippa Perry and Oprah Winfrey. He was a founding faculty member of The School of Life and is now embarking on new ventures to build the first Empathy Museum and an online Empathy Library.

Roman will be interviewed by Josh Falconer Roberts.


19th May – David Cohen, Campaigns Editor, The Evening Standard

David is best known for the award-winning campaign he runs for the Evening Standard. 'The Dispossessed' drew the public's attention to the vast inequalities that exist between Londoners. The campaign precipitated The Dispossessed Fund in July 2010 that is now worth more than £8.3 million.

David will be interviewed by Luke Davis.


26th May – Sarah Ellis, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Sainsbury's PLC 

Sarah is one of the foremost executives in corporate social responsibility in the country. She leads Sainsbury's corporate responsibility programme, spearheading the company's 20x20 Sustainability Plan to fulfil 20 environmental and social commitments by 2020. She has been recognised by Management Today as one of the top 35 women under 35.
