In every community and organisation there’s hidden potential and resource that is often left to languish within the confines of the silos and hierarchy we work within. A grassroots attitude is the belief in people to be far more with much less, when working towards a specific goal or challenge. SpeakTo unearths grassroots potential and identifies the best ways to mobilise this. Ours is an approach, not a ready-made template, and is rooted in our belief of the power of small actions to facilitate long term change. Big is not always better for change to be sustainable and productive.
Via inspirational talks, workshops and advisory sessions, SpeakTo work with communities, businesses and organisations to discover and engage grassroots potential. We also host a range of thought provoking short talks, ideas to encourage debate and learning.
SpeakTo is led by social innovator and leadership consultant Clare Richmond. After a successful career in marketing, Clare founded The Crouch End Project in 2007. This early experience of mobilising people around a connecting purpose and gaining ownership of it, was the inspiration for her work and recent MA in Creative Leadership.
Since then Clare and her team of consultants have been working on grassroots innovation projects, advising public and private sector organisations on strategic engagement and sustainable change.
