Andy Shanks, Director of Student Well-Being, University of Edinburgh

Graham has been working with us here at the University of Edinburgh for over a year, and he has recently trained 600 student leaders in leadership and the bystander approach. This is a crucial element of our learning and development programme, which in itself forms a central part of our strategy to tackle gender-based violence and sexual violence within the University community. Graham has many skills- he has the ability to inspire and engage participants in this incredibly important subject area, and he is able to make this personal for us so that we can see clearly our own role in being part of the change. Feedback from student leaders on Graham’s training has been overwhelmingly positive- he is helping us to develop confident student leaders, and to build a strong platform for facilitating significant culture change.
