My expertise lies in a variety of areas including futures thinking, the future of work and future skills for the 4th Industrial Revolution. I am also passionate about the environment and beekeeping (a life-long passion!).
I hold a Bachelors degree in Agricultural Science from University College Dublin, an MSc in Entrepreneurship (Stirling, University, UK), an MSc in Environmental Science (UCD) and a PhD in Rural Development (UCD).
I am an avid life-long learner which is essential for all of us in today's fast changing world.
I bring my varied background and experiences into all my courses on Udemy which I hope brings a fresh and enjoyable perspective to everything that I teach.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you on one of my courses.
