Presenting & consultancy

“Wonderful , inspiring, reassuring and super professional…A great, funny way to end the day. Was uplifting, and just on the right note. Great presenting style.” — feedback on the Wellington Loop keynote address (2018)

An engaging and highly experienced presenter and facilitator, both online and face-to-face.Talk to me about educational workshops, speaking engagement and consultancy.

We can explore:

  • Leading for change: Transforming and sustaining learning with learners at the heart.
  • Powerful professional learning design that will take your teams with you.
  • Inclusive design: Redesign learning and leading for a more inclusive, connected approach.
  • Digital tech & curriculum strategic planning for leaders and schools; integrate technologies powerfully in learner-centred curriculum and pedagogy – and when we shouldn’t.
  • Online community design: From ideation to facilitation, social networks and connectivity— when it works, when it doesn’t.
