Desmond Greaves Summer School 2019

I am on the Board of the Desmond Greaves Summer School, that organises a left-wing, non-partisan, annual summer school in Dublin, covering a broad range of historical, political, social and economic issues through talks and debates. I have presented papers and chaired panels over the past ten years, and find the Summer School speakers and audiences a source of inspirational critique and a refreshing antidote to the neoliberal mainstream consensus.

ISME Annual Conference 2019 - Brexit Panel

I was honoured to be asked to be part of the Irish Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Association's (ISME) Annual Conference in 2019, speaking on the topic of Brexit. I was thrilled to meet many SME owners and workers, and to understand their businesses and their views on Brexit.  The timing of the conference, 23rd October 2019, was a week before the planned 31st October exit date, with speculation rife in the media on a no-deal exit. I maintained that the UK would leave with a deal, specifically with Theresa May's deal, even if it required an extension to the timeline, because it was in the interests of both the UK and the EU.
