Keynote speaker: Sarah Brown
Sarah Brown is a passionate advocate for global education and health issues and her work brings together the worlds of business, philanthropy, social media and charity campaigning.
Sarah is the President of the children’s charity Theirworld, working to give a better start for the most vulnerable babies and children in the UK and globally. Theirworld is the charity behind breakthrough initiatives for double-shift schooling to accommodate Syrian refugee education in the Middle East as well as the Safe Schools Initiative in response to the abduction of the Chibok girls in Nigeria.
Sarah is the Executive Chair of the Global Business Coalition for Education and created A World At School, a global youth and NGO movement to get children across the world into quality education who otherwise miss out. She steered the #UpForSchool petition that gathered over 10 million signatures in 2015, and has pushed for the new Education Cannot Wait Fund that will support education in emergencies.
Through these roles, Sarah provides strategic leadership to worldwide efforts to save and change the lives of women and children. She is also the author of the best-selling book Behind the Black Door, a personal memoir about life at 10 Downing Street.
