liz-photo-black-and-whiteFirst and foremost, as a parent and educator, I passionately believe in the power of education to make the world a better place.

I have been a teacher and head teacher in some of the world’s leading schools and am an internationally recognised leader of education continuing professional development and learning (CPDL) services.  I am the founding Director of the International Leadership Academy, The Hague, Co-founder and leader of WomenEd Netherlands, Founding Fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching and recently authored ‘The Parents’ Guide to Primary Schools’ series and the soon to be published ‘International Perspectives’ chapter in the upcoming #WomenEd book by Sage.

My mission is to ensure we cultivate talent for education leadership that will afford future generations a quality global education. With staggering population growth, there has at no time been any greater a need than now for outstanding education leadership in all its guises. This is an urgent and pressing challenge for us all.

These are also exciting times in the world of education as we rise to this challenge and strive to prepare young people for a life full of opportunity and responsibility.  I am so privileged to work with parents and colleagues across the world as we relentlessly aim to provide the very best education to ready our young people for bright and fulfilling futures.
