Francesca Speakman

Strategic Lead - Active Children and Young People

Job role: My role is to help ensure that more children and young people are achieving the recommended amount of physical activity per day.

Date joined: July 2018

Professional background: My degree in Public Health & Nutrition led me to work in Weight Management and Obesity Services. Initially delivering “men’s only fitness” classes in Wigan, Specialist Services across Greater Manchester and eventually specialising in paediatric and family weight management in St. Helen’s, allowed me to expand my knowledge of behaviour change, particularly asset based conversations. In 2017, I moved to manage the family weight management service contract on behalf of Manchester City Council.

Fun fact: I once made a curry with Edwina Curry.
