Technology Presenter at Cisco

As a former language teacher and digital education advocate, part of my role in education was to encourage the use of technology within the classroom. Having spent over 7 years in this role, it was time for a change and I managed to land a role working as a Technology Presenter for Cisco, which is great because it allows me to really be in the know with regards to advances in technology and it also gives me the opportunity to liaise with educational establishments across the globe about new developments, products and features. At the Customer Experience Centre, we bring the technology to life and show the ‘art of the possible’ across a wide range of technologies, so my work to bring new technologies and developments to the education sector continues.
