Doug Belshaw Doug Belshaw
Open Ed Thinkerer

Doug is a specialist in digital literacies and new forms of accreditation such as Open Badges. He likes to help people become more productive in their use of technology. He's a doctor, but not the type that can help you with an emergency tracheotomy!

John Bevan John Bevan
Convenor & Connector

John connects people for the common good. He's devised and run open innovation programmes for a host of household names, helping them to break silos both within and between organisations.

Grainne Hamilton Grainne Hamilton
Learning Savant

Grainne is an artist, a dancer, a theater geek, who accidentally stumbled into e-learning and e-assessment at a time when the internet was young. She is a master networker and facilitator and loves opposites - a true ambivert.

Laura Hilliger Laura Hilliger
Strategist & Idea Maker

Laura is a creative champion for communities. Her mind baffles us. She builds, writes, sees big pictures. She thinks she's funny (she is), dislikes juggling and contributes because she knows that the more you give, the more you receive.

Jen Kelchner Jen Kelchner

Jen is a thinker, an analyst, a dot connector, a weaver of communities, a leader. She loves thought strings, which she enjoys pulling on until stuff falls into her brain like an idea piñata. She also has mad style and can rock a suit whether it has pockets or not.

Bryan Mathers Bryan Mathers
Visual Thinker

Bryan, from Visual Thinkery, creates pictures to explore and engage others in ideas, concepts and messages. He draws everything from avocados to zany figures. His mind can turn words into pictures that inspire more words.
