The Shirley Williams Lectures

Become a member

The Shirley Williams Lectures is a membership organisation. For an annual or monthly fee, members will gain access to our exclusive lecture series and recordings of past talks. All lectures are to be held online and two special events will be held, in person, each year.

Each month, we will provide a platform for some of the best progressive thinkers to discuss their vision for a particular aspect of public life. Be it the future of trade, international relations, progress in sport, or diversity in power. Our speakers will deliver their lecture and then answer members' questions, with time allowed for maximum interaction.

Speakers confirmed already:

  • Sir Nick Clegg, Former Deputy Prime Minister and Executive at Facebook
  • Baroness Benjamin, Peer and broadcaster
  • Sir Ed Davey MP, Leader of the Liberal Democrats
  • Juergen Maier, Former CEO Siemens
  • Callum Skinner, Gold winning Olympic Cyclist

Joining is easy. All people need to do is sign up either through our annual or monthly membership plan. A discount is provided to annual subscribers.

All proceeds go towards Cheadle Liberal Democrats as the hosts of the series.
