Stoke-on-Trent has been one of the UK cities hardest hit by the recession and its aftermath.
In Oct 2011, 2020Plus, the Think Tank on social change and leadership innovation, co-sponsored a leadership event for civic and business leaders in the city. Leadership speaker and social futurist Mal Fletcher outlined what might be needed to rejuvenate a culture of innovation across the city. (The event was hosted by Avodah Enterprises and Breathe City Church.)
Mal discusses what is required of leaders in tough times in this interview for BBC Radio Stoke. Note: this excerpt is part of a longer, prerecorded interview and was edited for time by the BBC.

For Mal Fletcher: thank you kindly for the nice words about my book, "No Time To Think: The Menace of Media Speed and the 24-hour News Cycle". Glad you enjoyed it and felt a need to comment on it. Charles, United States
Just wanted to thank you for your fantastic talks at Faith Camp. I've been going for years and have heard many speakers. I found you very refreshing from the "norm", whilst highly entertaining. Your TV programmes helped my wife in her early development as a Christian. Tim, UK
Mal, I so enjoy your teachings. Europe truly is the dark continent. Eric
