Nathan Shoesmith

Co-Founder & Managing Director

Meet Nathan

I'm Nathan, the Managing Director of The Speaker. I co-founded The Speaker in March 2018 on a mission to inspire the next generation in politics. I oversee all of our operations and drive the growth and development of The Speaker to ensure we are truly meeting our mission and goals. Since launching, we've grown to reach an audience in over 130 countries across the globe.

The political issues facing us now will affect young people not just today but also for generations to come. Therefore, I believe it is vital that now more than ever, young people, the leaders and decisions makers of tomorrow, get involved in politics and make their voices heard. I'm proud to be driving forward our projects such as #InspireNextGen, making politics accessible for the wider public and allowing young people to have their say and make their mark.

We are in a new age of politics which can quickly become confusing and complicated - but it doesn't have to be this way. I'm committed to leading our global team to ensure that political news is inclusive and can be understood by the wider public. We're reporting with no bias and no jargon and we're explaining politics in the UK and beyond.

I am motivated towards making positive change - delivering more than just a news website, but a resource for all. Politics has never been more important, making each new day at The Speaker important but also an exciting one.
