Welcoming our 6th and final speaker in this series Murad Qureshi, London Assembly Member. The series is to illustrate how becoming more aware of our higher values helps to give context to painful periods in our lives, and bring greater fulfilment to our lives.

As a member of the London Assembly, a body of 25 elected members which scrutinises the activities of the Mayor of London and has power over the Mayor's strategies and budget, Murad has worked with all three London Mayors, Ken Livingston, Boris Johnson and Sadiq Khan. He will be speaking about his passions for protecting the environment and championing people who need help… that and his other passion for team sports like cricket and football. Murad will also be speaking to us about his experiences in office, how he deals with the ups and downs of politics having lost his seat in the Protected content and regained it earlier this year, and how his values of empathy and courage fit into this roller coaster of activities.

Murad: “One of the reasons I’m so drawn to to team sports is the empathy between players - without this there would be little cohesion between the players and no game. Empathy and having the courage to stand by one’s principles are key values I respect - whether in football, cricket or politics”
