In this EA Global: Melbourne 2015 talk, Sam discusses effective strategies to effect change in policy. This talk was aimed at the effective altruism community, though the basic principles apply widely. Sam has worked as a political adviser and communications manager, including for former Federal Finance Minister Penny Wong, and was part of the team that won the ‘unwinnable’ 2014 South Australian state election. He is currently Director of Communications at Giving What We Can.
