This is a video of me talking about the pioneering bilingual educational coaching project established by Hodder Education. I was headhunted by Hodder in September 2017 because of my expertise in three areas that they wanted to include in their LEAD project with schools throughout Britain, those being:

  • Leadership skills
  • Employment and Diversity issues
  • Public Presentations
