Education on Fire

This podcast is a must for anyone involved with or interested in education, healthy child development or who wants a better understanding of what every child needs to develop and learn as they grow in order to successfully and happily navigate adulthood. Mark Taylor is an excellent interviewer and he has picked some really interesting people to talk to. As a regular listener I am more hopeful that there are UK schools who are making small adjustments to curriculum focus and pedagogy because of the groundswell of evidence concerning the other vital elements of education beyond academic attainment. These may be less tangible than grades, but they are no less important to the future social, emotional and mental health of our children.

Great discussion

Mark is a natural host and we were really pleased to be invited as guests to talk about Imagen, our business that enables young people to work with brands and agencies.

The discussion flowed well as Mark asked great questions that allowed us to talk about our expertise in the field of Gen Z.

Mark encouraged us to be us and that’s a wonderful quality.
