In April, Navitas joined thousands of education leaders, ‘ed-tech’ entrepreneurs and education industry investors at the Annual ASU-GSV Summit in San Diego, California. This summit, sponsored by Arizona State University and Global Silicon Valley, connects education start-ups, investors, thought leaders and education organisations of all sizes and is considered the ‘go to’ industry event. Navitas was well represented, with Patrick Brothers and Maria Spies joining panels discussing workforce development and global talent supply and demand. Tim Praill, who recently joined Navitas as GM Strategy and Transformation, also attended.
Over three days, keynote presenters, such as Jim Collins, Bill Gates, Sal Khan and Condoleezza Rice discussed education futures, megatrends in employment, skills and the future of learning. There were inspiring sessions from many of the big names in education and technology, including Google’s ‘Chief Education Evangelist’ Jaime Casap and a plethora of tech start-ups exploring the education space from all perspectives and all stages along the education pathway.
Maria and Patrick will be sharing key themes, impressions and potential implications for Navitas in this online panel session.
