Mark Argent works in design and IT, with many years experience of running a small business.
He was very involved in establishing the East of England Faiths Council, which involved bringing together people from a wide range of faiths, building the relationships which enabled this to work, and in relating to other third sector groups and regional governance. This also involved substantial engagement with regional policy.
Strong European connections led him to be very involved in the campaign to remain in the EU, and strong connections in the far East enrich his experience and understanding of international connections.
He's written for Independent Voices, is a blogger and regular contributor to Liberal Democrat Voice and has given papers on Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump at several conferences.
He sees the 2017 General Election as a crucial moment of opposition to Theresa May's Brexit plans and is particularly concerned at the likely effect of this on those in our society who can least afford to lose out.
