Dan Farag lead the People Powered Results team as a Nesta Enterprise until his departure in December 2021.
Dan joined Nesta in 2013 initially working on the Centre for Social Innovation Fund, a £14 million fund to support the growth of innovations that mobilise people’s energy and talents to help each other, working alongside public services. Through the success and growth of this work within the Health and Care sector he worked to establish Health Lab and incubated the People Powered Results team. The People Powered Results team has grown from an initial experiment with the 100 Day Challenge method in Essex, to a national team with a diverse offer which draws on a range of methods that can help individuals, organisations and systems to release the power of people closest to issues.
Dan has previously worked across the public, private and charitable sectors having previously held roles in Marie Curie, the Home Office; Grants Thorntons Government Advisory team; and the Centre for Public Innovation.
Outside of work Dan is father to three amazing children, and enjoys an active lifestyle finding every opportunity to enjoy the outdoors on run and bike ride.
