Opening Keynote: Nadiya Hussain
Tuesday 2nd July 2019, 18:00 - 19:15
Sheffield City Hall
Since winning ‘The Great British Bake Off’ in 2015, Nadiya Hussain has written and presented her way to national treasure status in record time. Her refusal to be pigeon-holed has been as striking as her willingness to speak out – including openly discussing her lifelong struggle with a panic disorder.
Ahead of the publication of her first children’s picture book, ‘My Monster and Me’, Nadiya will take to the stage to open the conference on Tuesday 2nd July, and face down the monsters that surround us all: mental health, intolerance, inequality… as she considers what we can all do to inspire young people to feel truly limitless.
