Introducing Makematic's Thought Leadership Series - BrandED
There are many brands in the education space. But why are they there, what are they doing and what do the people that work for them care about? These are the questions that we'll explore in Makematic's new thought leadership series, BrandED.
What Is BrandED?
BrandED is a thought leadership series that lifts the lid on what brands are doing in education. Twice a month, we'll be releasing interviews with education leaders who work for brands and non-profits all over the world.
There are three things unite those we interview. Firstly everyone we interview is in education. Secondly all interviewees work with a brand doing interesting things in the education space. Finally, the brand is helping educators and parents develop young people into 21st century global citizens.
This week is World Space Week. In honour of this important week, our first interview is with Educator Professional Development Specialist, Brandon Rodriguez from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
Released on Wednesday, Brandon will talk about: what JPL are doing in the education space, the importance of and biggest challenges to STEM education, the value of teacher professional development and how to inspire and motivate the next generation of learners.
So, who else will feature this year?
- Dr Ger Graus OBE, Global Director of Education at KidZania
- Meredith Allen, Sales Enablement Manager at Soundtrap for Education
- Jodie McNally, Head of Young People Services at the EY Foundation, and
- Kaitlyn Mudge, Education Programme Manager at the International Paralympic Committee
I'm not going to lie, Eamon Kerrigan the series producer and I loved meeting and interviewing this incredible bunch of people. Hearing about the work they are doing for the organisations they represent is inspiring. It's easy to feel invigorated when you hear them talk about the things their organisation is doing in the education space.
I only hope you enjoy watching the interviews as much as Eamon and I have enjoyed the process of getting them ready for you to view.
