PODCAST – Episode 2 – Danny Sriskandarajah’s #RouteToTheTop

If you missed our #BreakfastClub event last month, don’t worry because you can catch up on the latest episode of our podcast series. Recorded live at Soapbox in London last month, we discuss with Danny Sriskandarajah his #RouteToTheTop, ahead of his big move to become the boss of Oxfam GB in the New Year.


Danny’s #RouteToTheTop has included stints as Director General of the Royal Commonwealth Society and General Secretary of CIVICUS, a global alliance of civil society organisations. But his rise to began at a think tank, the Institute for Public Policy Research, where he distinguished himself from his fellow wonks by being comms savvy.

In conversation with me, his former press officer, Danny discusses where it all went right, what he’d do differently if he had his time over again and what you can learn from his rise from junior think tank researcher to CEO of Britain’s best known charity.

Produced, as ever, by the awesome Sofie Jenkinson (thanks Sof!).
