Bill Lowe: Trainer | Author | Consultant
This is me with Chris Griffiths, the founder of OpenGenius. I had just finished training to become an Applied Innovation Instructor.
This training was a time of reinvention for me.
After a decade of working in higher education - focussed on writing and delivering Undergraduate and Masters Degree level work in both leadership and teaching - I decided to make this experience available to a wider audience
The Applied Innovation training I did came after working with Chris and his team to get Buzan accredited MindMap trainer status.
If you add this to the Masters Degree I have in Leadership and Digital Curriculum, you can see that I have a wide range of qualifications where contemporary knowledge is backed up by a high level of academic understanding.
I have worked with individuals and presented training to large groups - the biggest being 400.
I was head of a school in Gloucestershire and led a diverse team in a middle leadership role at university.
My experience extends outside of education. I have sold in publishing, finance and industrial storage.
In addition to this, I have been an employer and a freelance. All this has put me where I am now.
Roles and positions:
Master Trainer - OpenGenius
Executive Consultant - Kestrel Education
Buzan Mind Mapping Licensed Instructor
Visiting Lecturer - University of Birmingham, UK.
