We're very excited to be hosting a panel entitled View from the Outside: Can Labour win? where we'll be joined by political opponents for an honest discussion on what Labour is doing right and wrong in the run up to 2015.
We'll be joined for this panel by;
- Sheila Gunn, John Major's former press advisor and author of So you Want to be a Political Journalist?
- Olly Grender, Liberal Democrat Peer and former Director of Communications at the Lib Dems
- Ann Leslie, Daily Mail journalist and broadcaster
Will Labour win from the centre or the left?
Leaving our comfort zone: regaining Labour’s lost voters
The ground war: beating the Tories, the Lib Dems, the Greens and UKIP
Changing to win: making Labour fit for purpose
We will be hosting visitors from Labour's sister parties in nearly a dozen countries, including Ghana, Botswana, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Jordan.
And the programme for the day includes a special session in which women from Labour's Sister Parties in the Middle East will be speaking on their experiences of the Arab Spring and how they are working to support and empower women in their countries, ensuring that the voices of women aren't lost after revolution. The panel will be chaired by Claire Leigh, Co-Chair of the Labour Campaign for International Development and offers a unique chance to hear the inspirational stories of these women.
Confirmed for this very special Panel so far are:
