LC

Lynne Calvert

Service Manager – Live Well
Wigan Council
Following an early career which included catering, pub singing and sales, alongside being primary carer for an older sister, Lynne returned to learning in an attempt to make up for leaving school at 16 with minimal qualifications. After achieving two A Levels she became seriously ill, and over a period of 7 years had in excess of 20 operations. During this period, as part of her recovery plan, she embarked on an OU degree course. Towards the end of the six years it took to complete she became involved in volunteering and community development, in turn this led to her to return to work, and into Public Health – an area which has proved to be a natural home, albeit by accident rather than design. Her experience as carer, patient and in sales have all informed the approaches taken over the past ten years to improve the health of Wigan residents.

Hilary Cottam

Author, Innovator and Social Entrepreneur
Hilary is a social entrepreneur. Her career started with an international focus: she worked in Northern Ethiopia, with Care International in Latin America and as an urban poverty specialist at the World Bank, based in Washington D.C., working in Southern Africa.

Today Hilary is focused on reforming the British welfare state. Her work starts where the great 20th century welfare designer Sir William Beveridge left off. Hilary challenges us to stop trying to reform out of date institutions and instead look at how modern solutions might start with people and communities, fostering their capabilities.

Innovative, practical work includes: a prison re-design; services for older people; new thinking on modern work; a family led programme where those with multiple needs design their own way forward. The new services and enterprises created by Hilary with communities across Britain have had an impact on the lives of many thousands.

Ultimately it’s all about relationships: Hilary’s work shows how we need to turn an industrial, transactional mind set on its head and build our connections with one another into every aspect of social change.

Hilary was educated at Oxford, Sussex and the Open Universities. She was awarded her PhD in 1999.

In 2005 Hilary was voted UK Designer of the Year for her groundbreaking work and in 2007 the World Economic Forum nominated Hilary as a Young Global Leader. Her work has been widely featured from Rolling Stone to Fast Company and in the UK national and international press.
