In Parliament he has been a member of Select Committees on Democracy and Digital Technologies, Intergenerational Fairness, Artificial Intelligence, Digital Skills, Social Mobility and Financial Exclusion and has published reports on Distributed Ledger Technologies and Reducing Friction in International Trade.

This enthusiasm for the opportunities of the 4th Industrial Revolution and expertise in diversity and inclusion make him a popular public speaker.

His personable nature and relaxed style works well for virtual events and he has received great feedback from recent engagements. His life experience teaches any audience that no matter the obstacle, anything is possible and he communicates this powerful message with incredible warmth, humour and humility.
