Our mission at CAMPAIGN CLASH is to connect and challenge people who are passionate about social change and politics, mainly charities, campaigning organisations and think tanks, as well as experts and commentators. We want to encourage effective and impactful campaigning and debate.
Campaign Clash was set up by Drew Lindon and Leon Bailey-Green in 2016. Leon moved on from Campaign Clash in April 2017.
Representing contrasting parts of the political spectrum (Drew is centre-left, and Leon is on the right), we found our debates a great opportunity to hear and appreciate radically different views. This led us to want to help other campaigners do the same.
Although he is no longer involved Leon’s influence will continue to be felt and Drew may entice him back for more debates in future.
Drew (r) runs a consultancy business which offers insight and support on policy, campaigns and public affairs projects, whilst Leon’s business connects retail, publishing and charity professionals at networking events.
Leon (l) was recognised for his networking skills by fashion business magazine Drapers which featured him in its 30 Under 30 list, and Drew has won multiple awards including the Health/Pharma PR Campaign of the Year and Public Affairs Campaign of the Year 2014.
