About his Talk...

Paul is a Stand Alone speaker, so all that is needed is a table for books and information. A microphone may be an advantage if the room is large room or there is a large audience.

The talk lasts about 45 minutes and it can be lengthened or shortened to fit in with the requirements of the event.


There is no standard fee – Paul asks for a donation towards the work of CNI Network. He is based in Halifax, West Yorkshire and is happy to travel within an hour / 60 miles of his base into  Yorkshire, Cheshire or Lancashire  with travel charged at  45p per mile.

Street Angels and Beyond! Work on the Streets, Inside Clubs and at Festivals.

Founded in November 2005 the scheme has seen violent crime and sexual assaults reduce dramatically in many of the communities projects work and has helped make town and city centres safer and more vibrant place on Friday and Saturday nights. Because of Paul’s contribution to community safety he was awarded a MBE (Most Excellent Member of the British Empire) in the New Years Honours 2010 by Her Majesty the Queen. To accommodate the expansion of Street Angels Paul founded the Christian Nightlife Initiatives (CNI) Network in July 2008 which has helped over one hundred towns and cities across the UK to launch similar projects including work every summer at various music festivals. This initiative has won support of many leading church leaders, denominations and organisations. CNI Network is a leading voice for faith based projects working within the night-time economy. In 2014 Paul became a published author with the book “Street Angels – the amazing story from binge to better” which collates inspiring stories from across CNI Network. Paul is an assessor for the Queens Award for Voluntary Services and has set up various other initiatives such as #FaithAndPoliceTogether and #Do1NiceThing. Paul will talk about work on the streets, in nightclubs and at festivals in a humorous and engaging way.
