Chandila Fernando | Speaker Biography

Youngest candidate for Liberal Democrats President
Prime Ministerial adviser before age 40
TEDx speaker on Sri Lanka's debt crisis

He has an extensive background working with a wide range of organizations, including Barclays Global Business Solutions, The Sri Lankan Board of Investment, Metropolitan Group, and The Amelie and Daniel Foundation. His problem-solving approach is both creative and unorthodox, with a strong focus on achieving tangible results. He is confident and adept at speaking on various platforms, including radio and national and international stages, and has appeared on media channels such as Sky and BBC.

Before the age of 40, he served as a Prime Ministerial adviser, demonstrating his deep passion for foreign policy, smart tourism™, international trading partnerships, and female economic empowerment in emerging markets. He possesses a particular interest in predicting global economic and geo-political trends, as well as fostering meaningful relationships between South East Asia and the Western world.

He has also gained valuable experience working on campaigns, including developing messaging for candidates, and has been an approved UK parliamentary candidate for the Conservative Party. Notably, he holds the distinction of being the youngest person in British political history to have run for President of the Liberal Democrats. He has delivered impactful national political speeches, such as one at a Conservative Party Conference where he discussed education and grammar schools, and was introduced by former UK Prime Minister, Theresa May.

In his thought-provoking 2016 TEDx talk, titled 'The Great Debt Switch,' he presented a unique solution to Sri Lanka's sovereign debt crisis, utilizing LEGO, a little princess, and betting slips. On a daily basis, he specializes in assisting small to medium-sized companies, with fewer than 150 staff, in developing comprehensive business, marketing, and financial plans to effectively manage commercial risk. He excels as an interim crisis management and strategic growth specialist.
