As the CEO of Worldskills UK, Neil speaks regularly to audiences about the importance of LGBT+ leadership at work when talking at public fora and when writing blogs and articles for media. By doing this, he encourages more employers to think about the role of leadership in supporting LGBT+ young people at work . He is currently working to bring together Stonewall, employers, government and leaders in further education to discuss the benefits of LGBT+ leadership and the impact on students and apprentices. As part of a new business plan, Neil has established a diversity strategy and working group for his workplace and across their partnership supply chain, with LGBT+ as a core element, to demonstrate action and commitment to their workforces, partners and the 100,000 young people they work with annually. Externally, Neil is a strong supporter, and former deputy Chair of Stonewall, and a mentor in the OUTstanding Mentoring Programme.
