As a Minister under both David Cameron and Theresa May, the Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP helped to implement an ambitious agenda of school reform that has transformed the educational landscape in England, often in the face of stern opposition from the education establishment and opposition politicians alike.
In this speech, Nick argued not only that the reforms have worked, but that the Government should learn from this success by adopting similarly radical approaches in other areas. By doing so, he argued, the Government has been able to meet the challenges of the future and face up to the crisis of capitalism that is causing diminishing trust in business and threatening the future of the Conservative Party.
