Magid Magid spoke at one of the discussions we convened and has no formal association with Cumberland Lodge. We do not pass on the contact details of past speakers and cannot always forward contact enquiries. 

Magid Magid, Lord Mayor of Sheffield, is the city's first Somali Lord Mayor, and, at 28, the youngest Lord Mayor.

At age five he moved to Sheffield after having spent six months in an Ethiopian refugee camp with his mother and five siblings. They had left Somalia ‘to find a better life’.

Magid says he hopes to bring the role of Lord Mayor ‘into the 21st Century’ and he hopes it will ‘help engage those that have not previously engaged before.’
