“I was born running with the baton to make a difference”

Trevor Blackman

 

As a youth, community and creative co-producer (Project Manager, Director and CEO), I have always believed in my capabilities. Driven by a simple, but powerful philosophy of supporting, encouraging and providing all individuals and communities with the opportunity to be all they can be. Throughout my public career, I have been privileged to work alongside some fearless individuals as we advocate for the voiceless and vulnerable. I am a vocal and determined fighter on behalf of all people. My no nonsense approach and strong management skills have seen me accepted onto the Clore Leadership Programme which forms part of the British Council’s Cultural Leaders International Scheme.

I have mentored thousand of young people and adults – being a co-producer of lives for over 20 years.

I can rest when I die, until then I have a lot I need to do”
