About us

Bringing together over 40 years' experience across the education sector, we're two international women educators on a mission:

to unlock learning for ambitious learners in partnership with organisations driving change through education.

 We are advocating for ways to remove the barriers for ambitious learners to thrive in C21st society through a more thoughtful and holistic self-aware approach that focuses as much on end goals as it does on process.
