Bringing practical experience combined with a core strength in business strategy and development, and a desire to lead change in education through:
AI Policy Development for Education
With a deep understanding of key risks, challenges and regulatory requirements regarding the use and implementation of AI within education ecosystems, I am happy to support the development of AI policy at company, local, national or supranational level. I bring extensive knowledge of existing regulatory practice and best practice methods for making policy practical and implementable. Through workshops, guided action plans and policy writing, I can support at all levels of development.
Speaking & Research Articles
Key trends in EdTech, market challenges, international innovations and risks, interoperability, artificial intelligence, and the future of Education and learning are just some of the topics that I regularly speak on at international conferences, in panels and as a keynote speaker. I also regularly author position or concept papers and, with a background in teaching, enjoy making complex topics accessible to everyone.
Interoperability & Data Protection
As a specialist on the topic of interoperability within the education ecosystem, I work with governments and industry representatives to determine processes and architecture plans to ensure products, systems and structures are future-proofed with an ease and security of access for all users. Understanding local data protection laws, I aim to ensure student and learning information is safe and products are compliant.
Digital Education Strategies & Analyses
Having gained extensive experience from working with over 3000 schools, multiple governments and industry leaders in over 46 countries, I design digital education strategies and conduct thorough market analyses for ministries of education, NGOs and Non-for-Profits in the education sector. I am passionate about enabling a stronger, more interoperable education experience.
