Perry Walker is co-founder of Talk Shop, which stimulates constructive conversation, and runs the Open Up website, which helps people work out what they think about the issues of the day. He lives in Hereford. In days of yore, before the virus, he organised a monthly discussion evening on politics and ethics at the Left Bank in Hereford. He also used Q Method, a qualitative statistical approach, to understand attitudes to the bypass.

In our new online world, he has just run the first of HGN Great Collaboration Towards a Zero Carbon Herefordshire’s online workshops, on using the win-win approach as a way to do democracy differently. He hopes to run it again, so let him know if you are interested.

Perry can be contacted via the “Who we Are” page of the Talk Shop website
