Michael Sani is one of the U.K’s leading social entrepreneurs who specialises in purpose-driven engagement. Under his leadership Bite The Ballot has grown from a lunchtime club in one school to a national movement. He has led world record-breaking voter registration campaigns and driven changes in policy and legislation to increase civic engagement.
During the European Referendum Michael was called into Downing Street to support the Prime Minister’s call for all the largest UK tech companies to call for their audiences to register to vote. Bite The Ballot activated a nationwide voter registration drive across key digital platforms including Tinder, Twitter, Facebook, Uber and Deliveroo. This resulted in over 1.1 million young citizens register to vote. During the campaign, an estimated 1.85 million citizens applied to register to vote and crashed the Gov.UK portal with the last gasp efforts to ensure they could participate in the referendum.
US President Barack Obama quoted Michael at a keynote speech in his last visit to the UK as president, where Barack referred to Michael personally as a change agent.
