What inspired you to join the Board?

Joining the board is a unique opportunity to work with a driven team of industry leaders and digital skills practitioners to build and implement digital skills training pathways. By working together we can ensure that digital skilling and transitional career support is provided nationally - irrespective of learner location, age, stage of career and background.

What do ‘digital skills’ mean in your life and business?

When I think about digital skills I do think of specialist technical skills such as engineering, cyber, artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality, robotics, quantum computing, blockchain and more. But increasingly I also consider skills across digital engagement channels, product development and delivery and skills such as how we live, thrive and build careers in a digital age as crucial to personal and business success.
