Michael Conroy (BA, MA, PGCert, PGDip, YMHFA, ASIST) has worked in Secondary Education in England for 16 years, delivering a wide range of citizenship and well-being programmes for students in Years 7-13. School and community-based programmes and initiatives Michael has steered have been recognised by awards including a Sinnott Fellowship and a Suzy Lamplugh Young Person’s Safety Award. In recent years he has developed bespoke CPD for school staff in unpicking social influences on the values and beliefs of boys and young men and how some of those influences can manifest in a range of problematic behaviours.

He recorded a TEDx Youth Talk in October 2018 and in December 2018 was an expert contributor to the Women & Equalities Select Committee in Parliament on the topic of Sexual Harassment.
