Join our panel to examine what makes a great political speech.

About this Event

From Martin Luther King to Greta Thunberg's recent speech at Davos, a rousing political speech can change the world.

Chaired by Michael Blackley, Scottish Parliament Journalist Association Secretary, this panel includes:

  • David Clegg, Assistant Editor and Political Editor at The Daily Record
  • Kezia Dugdale, Director of the John Smith Centre for Public Service
  • Dr Julia Peetz, PhD in Performance and Politics at the University of Warwick
  • Dr Andrew Crines, Senior Lecturer in British Politics at the University of Liverpool

This event will run in partnership with the Scottish Parliament Journalists Association (SPJA).
