Experience.

 

As the Global Director of Human Performance and Strategic Initiatives Construct Education, I focus on the alignment between our teams personal development and the strategic intent of the business.  By aligning these 2 elements, we have the greatest possible chance of ensuring our people are happy and thriving, doing what they do best, while achieving what we as a company intend. 

 

This includes

  • Being a business leader, strategic decision-maker, with the ability to influence the thinking of others, and strong negotiation skills;

  • Brining 20+ years experience in education, technology and entrepreneurship, including building and selling a successful EdTech business;

  • Resolving operational and strategic issues, where the optimal solution may not be immediately apparent, and information is diverse, partial and perhaps conflicting;

  • Aligning teams around business objectives, setitng up efficient agile systems and driving excellence;

  • Managing resources and budget, on a company-wide scale;

  • Bringing professional, research-based and applied experience of andragogy and pedagogy to the design of digital programmes across corporates, universities, government and civil societies, globally.

Testimonials.

‘I run a property development and management business.  My challenge was to diversify revenue streams given the slow-down due to political and economic factors.  I contacted Meg and together we worked through the Business Model Canvas.  This helped me to identify other areas that I could utilize to generate cash flow, and to grow revenue. We have now used these ideas to implement structural changes to our business model.’
