Transforming Higher Education – for the 21st century workplace

Higher education plays an important role in life, preparing students to thrive in the workplace or entrepreneurial world. While consulting in this sector, I have been so excited by potential but often witnessed important transformative initiatives that would help meet student needs being squashed by internal politics and tradition. My guests include Tosin Adebisi who works as Senior International Lead at the University of Sussex, the world leader for Development Studies. He specialises in using education as a transformative tool and leads an intrapreneurship project to position Sussex as the place for corporate entrepreneurs. Also, Professor Sue Baxter who is Director of Research, Enterprise & Social Partnerships and an experienced leader of economic, business and social development. Join us as we discuss how Sussex are making great necessary change by adopting a more intrapreneurial approach. If you care about education or are considering your higher education options then do join us.
