Dragon's Den

Are you off to conference? Then put this in your diary -

Monday, September 15, 2008
1:00pm - 2:00pm
Marriot Highcliff, Dorchester 1

The Electoral Reform Society with Lib Dem Voice ask -

What’s your one big idea to improve democracy in this country?

Submit your idea to . Then go to the Electoral Reform Society stand at conference in Bournemouth over Saturday and Sunday, and vote* to select the top five ideas submitted.The top five win the opportunity to pitch their idea, Dragons’ Den style, to the Electoral Reform Society’s expert panel at our fringe event on Monday lunchtime.
The panellists will be:
• Julia Goldsworthy MP
• Richard Reeves, chair of Demos
• Ken Ritchie, Chief Executive of the Electoral Reform Society
• Stephen Tall of Lib Dem Voice

Plus, the top five will get a signed copy of Richard Reeves’ new biography of John Stuart Mill.

This opportunity to shine is open to any Liberal Democrat party member attending conference.

Give your proposal a title of not more than eight words, and summarise it in fewer than 30. You can provide more detail if you with, but we won’t be able to fit it on the ballot paper to select the ideas that get pitched to the panel.

Think the unthinkable, be bold, be positive, and give us your one big idea!

I have taken the above from Facebook, so not sure closing date, but I am sure if you head over to their stall at conference you will find out - thinking caps on then!!
