In Conversation Live with Baron Andrew Adonis
Baron Andrew Adonis, British Labour peer, and past Secretary of State for Transport and Chairman of the National Infrastructure Commission, will be joining Professor Roger Kirby, RSM President, for a discussion about his political career and humble beginnings, his perspective on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted education in schools and public transport, and finally, Baron Adonis will be sharing his opinion on the Brexit strategy and his campaign for a ‘People’s Vote’.

In 1998, Baron Adonis was appointed by Prime Minister Tony Blair to be an advisor at the Number 10 Policy Unit. He was later promoted to become the Head of the Policy Unit from 2001 until being made a life peer in 2005. He was appointed Minister of State for Education and remained in that role until 2008, before becoming Minister of State for Transport. From 2009 to 2010, he was promoted to the Cabinet as Secretary of State for Transport.

Baron Adonis has worked for a number of think tanks, is a board member of Policy Network and is the author or co-author of several books, including studies of the British class system, the rise and fall of the Community Charge, and the Victorian House of Lords.

From 2015, Baron Adonis was the Chair of the independent National Infrastructure Commission but resigned in 2017 to focus his attention on Brexit. Currently he is Chairman of the European Movement and a columnist for The New European.
