Sheriffs’ Challenge

We support the Annual Sheriffs’ Challenge. It was started by Liveryman Peter Estlin, to give students in London schools a chance to hone their public speaking skills by delivering a team-work presentation, competitively, on a topic relating to the City of London or the business/wider world. 2019 was the third year in which the Challenge had been a feature of the Livery Year, but it was the first year in which it has been organised by the Worshipful Company of Educators, which continues with great success.

The 2023 Sheriffs’ Challenge subject chosen by the Sheriffs Alastair King and Andrew Marsden is:

“Post-Covid, the City will change beyond all recognition”
