Ojay McDonald

leads on public policy for the Association of Town & City Management. In this role he works with Government Ministers, parliamentarians, economic development professionals, business leaders and place-makers across the UK and Ireland to support town and city centres.

He works on a range of policy issues including tax reform, local government finance, the EU and UN Urban Agenda, devolution, the Northern Powerhouse, transport, housing, planning, retail and urban regeneration.


Polly Barnfield OBE

is the Founder and CEO of Maybe*, a platform that eliminates the gap between how shoppers want to shop and how retailers are able to connect with them.

She is working on the #WDYT, What do you Think, a campaign to help towns and places increase their digital influence to drive physical and digital footfall to the High Street. Through this campaign, an index of over 1300 UK towns has been created that measures the social out put of over 150,000 retailers. This data can be linked to each place and their footfall.
Polly was also the Founder of Everyclick whose innovative fundraising platforms have raised over £8.5m for a wide range of charities. In 2012 she was awarded an OBE for services to Philanthropy.
