Meet Our Team

The King’s Think Tank is student-led, meaning every single committee member is a student from King’s College London. Our team of volunteers works tirelessly throughout the academic year to put on terrific events with high-profile speakers and offer students the opportunity to have their policy ideas heard by MPs, experts, and influential figures.
