Co-creator/CEO, Switch Education for Business Ltd

Switch Education is committed to learner-centred approaches to digital education by helping learning professionals deliver the best learning experiences and learning outcomes possible. Our focus is on helping them develop the confidence and competence they need to transition from traditional, classroom learning to contemporary digital education. By putting pedagogy first, we remove the mindset obstacles and behavioural blockages that often prevent the creation of dynamic, online learning content, courses and programs. Our design, research and development processes use our 3-stage change model that is underpinned by Social Cognitive Theory, a proven approach through its core focus on boosting learner and educator self-efficacy beliefs. For over 25 years, I have worked as a management educator and leadership development consultant in Business Schools, Consultancies and Not-for-Profits in Australia, USA, Canada and the UK. Launching Switch fulfills my lifelong dream of giving educators, educational leaders, managers and leaders access to the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to thrive. My approach to pedagogy is strongly influenced by social cognitive theory and its core principle of self-efficacy beliefs. Digital technology provides an amazing opportunity to bring my dream to fruition. I've published articles in leading organisational psychology, HRM and education journals and blog regularly on digital education, management and leadership issues.
