Examples of Tom Llewellyn Speaking


“Thank you very much for your time, patience, and thoughtful contributions to our group. Many people both from the West Bank and Gaza reached out to me after the event to tell me how much they learned from you. In particular, I was very impressed by how you understood and contextualized the Palestinian case.” – Leila Collins

“[Tom has] such contagious energy about the big concepts and the details of the different examples.” – Jacqueline Kozak Thiel (Sustainability Officer, City of Fort Collins)

“Tom’s presentation was inspiring and exhilarating –  the discussion he subsequently facilitated prompted participants to pitch no fewer than 14 ideas to the festival. Shareable’s vision of a sharing economy aligns closely with our aspiration to make Wolverhampton a truly participatory community and we look forward to developing an even closer working relationship with Shareable moving forward.”  – Make:Shift 2018: Annual festival of ideas Wolverhampton, UK

“Tom is an excellent public speaker, highlighting the global movement around sharing with powerful case studies and expert analysis. As a result of the webinar, some of the participants felt more inspired and informed to develop sharing initiatives in their own communities, which is a fantastic outcome from a one-hour-long online event!” – Network of Wellbeing

“Through meeting Tom Llewellyn at an event in London, I heard about the ShareFest initiatives that Shareable has supported, and felt really inspired. We hosted a wonderful ShareFest, where over 800 people came along to celebrate sharing, repairing, swapping and making. We’re very grateful Tom  could join us, and share the story of Sharing Cities” – Mirella Ferraz (ShareFest Totnes, UK).
