DiPratz ,

Grazie!

Thank you to all our listeners, particularly those who have taken the time to provide responses to each of the episodes they encounter with our amazingly brave Game Changers from education and industry. Let’s Go!

Setting the standard

"Cometh the hour, cometh the man"... or in this instance, men! Rarely have so many faced so much change, so quickly. Yet, amazingly, through the GC podcast, Phil and Adriano have managed to achieve something quite extraordinary during these quite extraordinary times. GCs' matches the magnitude and scale of the moment. The team have captured rich insights, a wealth of expertise and brilliant resources in such a short space of time and during difficult conditions of pandemic proportions. That they have produced as comprehensive a snapshot of innovation in education as you're likely to find and with such quality is a testament to their own innovation. Learning, and leading, by doing!

Davidlhardie ,

Buzzword bingo.

In 30 years in education I have never heard such a meaningless mish-mash of edu-babble that actually conveys nothing.
If I was going to write a satire based on an education consultant who actually was an empty facade I would be transcribing the highlights from this podcast.
