Education Strategy & Development.
Established and newly formed organizations both need future forward strategy. The old model of strategic planning has become outdated due its lack of flexibility and an reliance on easily attained goals instead of true impact. I have facilitated major strategic planning in two schools that have led to international recognition for innovation and have been personally awarded for innovative leadership in this regard. I have also worked with corporate entities such as the American Chamber of Commerce to effectively lobby and impact government policy.

Building projects and new school design is often reliant on architects without understanding of new school practices. Ping pong tables, open planning and bean bags often fail to achieve an environment you are trying to create. Are you able to ask the right questions in your new project? Let me look over the plans or facilitate a planning meeting to meet the aspirations of your school or office to support deep thinking, collaboration and effective work. My experience is grounded in the leading neuroscience applied to relationships and space.
Are you starting a new private international school? There are many foundational documents and policies that are best written before you hire your first employee. Critical questions around safety, facilities, operational structures, Board formation, business procedures should be considered before the doors open if your intent is to one day be a leading institution in your region. Bad international schools open every day when a business manager without educational expertise is making key budgetary decisions about facilities, resources, staffing and curriculum.
