Meet the Team

We are Business leaders, Strategies, and Event Managers but most of all we are passionate about education. 

We believe Superintendents are defenders of our children’s right to a high-quality public education, leading their teams toward effective, sustainable solutions to age-old problems. They must be at the center of discussions around when, where, and how innovation will affect teaching and learning.
