Power in the People


Few of us realise how powerful we can be in changing public policy and accelerating the end of extreme poverty. In this session the director of Christian Aid describes the changing face of poverty and the forces that are driving political and economic agendas nationally and internationally – and shows how we the people, when we work together, can reshape them for the common good of all people everywhere. In association with Christian Aid.

Loretta Minghella is responsible for Christian Aid’s strategic direction, plans and programmes. Before that she practised as a criminal lawyer and as chief executive of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. She oversaw the payment of over £21bn in compensation to victims of bank failures, for which she was awarded an OBE.
