Consultant, Sector 4 Focus, co-founder at Fair for You
Tom Levitt is a writer and consultant on responsible business, a field he has worked in since leaving Parliament in 2010 after 13 years as a Labour MP. In 2015 he helped to found the anti-poverty social enterprise, Fair for You, and has held several positions as a charity chair and company director. His current book is ‘The Company Citizen: Good for Business, Planet, Nation and Community’. As a consultant his clients have included major businesses, think tanks, councils and charities, and he's carried out ground-breaking research on the role of small businesses in the community.

Starting his career as a science teacher in secondary schools, Tom lives in West London and is a season ticket holder at Brentford FC. His latest play, ‘PowerPlay’, a post-Brexit political tragicomedy, was performed in the Camden Fringe this summer.
