    Should Teachers Study Further?

    Teachers think that by doing an honours, Master’s or even PhD in education that they will open more doors and increase their chances of being promoted. This simply isn’t the case. In today’s episode I share my thoughts on whether I think teachers should study further.

    Find Work Outside of Teaching!

    Find Work Outside of Teaching!

    You can go work in any industry of your choosing. That’s the message that Kim Craig shared with us during this episode.

    The legal industry has the same challenges that education has. Both can be extremely conservative and reluctant to change. Many traditional approaches are now obsolete and we need to rethink our processes. Teachers already possess so much of the skills needed in the workforce. Why not broaden your horizons.

    Kim Craig is the co-founder of Bold Duck Studios and she has great success in assisting law firms with adapting to change.  Kim has been driving change for the past 20 years on how lawyers and business professionals deliver legal services to their clients.  She broke down barriers and the stigma of “nonlawyers” playing a critical role in the efficient and effective delivery of legal services.

    She took an entrepreneurial leap three years ago to co-found the first business design agency in the legal arena where Kim and her partner combine their expertise and discipline in business design, process optimization, and change management to build new businesses and service models for their clients.

    In this episode she shares:
    Why she employs teachers in her firm.How principals and teachers can adapt their processes.Why curiosity is such an important trait for teachers to have.Join other Super Teachers online:

    Getting Schools Out of Their Comfort Zones

    Getting Schools Out of Their Comfort Zones

    Learning requires some discomfort and little progress is made when we are in our comfort zone. One entrepreneur that isn’t afraid of discomfort is Kirsty Bisset.

    Kirsty Bisset is a serial entrepreneur with 8 businesses under her belt - 1 of which she still owns, 3 of which have been successfully sold or merged, 1 which has failed, and 3 in which she holds shares. 

    Kirsty shares with us how schools can move out of their comfort zones to improve their brand and shares how digital technologies can be used to improve the learning experience.

    She has recognition from the likes of Fast Company, Destiny Magazine and Fairlady magazine. Kirsty thrives to build brands and businesses in the fintech, FMCG and retail space through holistic digital strategies and rollouts. 

    She is currently the MD of the Durban arm of HaveYouHeard - a strategic communications agency servicing clients globally.

    When not doing that, she’s a prolific writer, a snowboarder, and advocate for gender equality.
