We added two bonus episodes because we always like to over-deliver, and promise something, and deliver a little bit more! ... or maybe we just really like doing this show, so we continued! Our technology based episodes have been some of the most popular, this one is another on that same note. We have the Head of Epson for WA on this show, Nikki Young. Epson products feature in 8 out of 10 classrooms and we frequently see the lack of knowledge that cost schools a fair bit of time, money,...

Our guest today is an obsessive runner and incredibly experienced technology integrator in education - David Brown. If there is someone who knows how to integrate technology into day-to-day teaching (not just for the novelty factor, the cool gadgets, and the esoteric) but to actually achieve better results, to minimise repetitive work, to increase collaboration, to create a learning experience, to even fast track curriculum outcomes - it is David.

Today’s guest is John Clarke who is the CEO of Science Teachers Association of Western Australia. John is one of the most experienced educators that I have had the privilege of speaking too. He has 35+ years of experience in education and it has spanned from being in the trenches to observing from high level, so he speaks from both ends, which was unique. And, as his life in education has been split into 3 10 year segments, the first 10 year stint was done in catholic education, the second...

Episode 6 | Education’s IT Zen Master One Week Before Retiring, Having Complete Control in Complete Chaos - Graham Pilsworth

Today’s episode has a very interesting story behind it. The guest is Graham Pilsworth, and why it is interesting is due to the fact that I know Graham relatively well, we worked with him for the past many years at his role at one of the largest public schools in the state - Baldivis Secondary College. But I reached out to Graham and wanted him to be one of the guests on the podcast, and he said “Sure! I’m retiring in two weeks so you’ll have to make it work in that timeframe.” Which I...


Episode 5 | How To Spot Entrepreneurial Traits In Students, Helping Find The Right Job, And 800,000 Enriched Students - Jeremy Chetty

This episode is a treat, literally - for jam-packed information and to change your thinking, this is the silver bullet. Because my guest is an incredibly sharp thinker and has such clarity of thought, I was amazed at the insights he brought straight off the bat because due to his busy schedule, he had no time to prepare, and I had to throw him some curve balls straight up. My guest is Jeremey Chetty, the co-founder of the largest student membership organisation in the country, which I’m...

Zion is one of the reasons we have taken our business (K2 Audiovisual) from three guys, a van and $500 to the largest AV technology provider in education in under three years. He is the mad man of the digital advertising...


Episode 3 | Why The Education System Is Broken, Get Rid Of Worksheets & Testing, And Create Your Own School - Suzy Urbaniak

This is going to be a bit of a ‘high energy’ episode, one that will have you infuriated or fired up to make a change yourself, and have you sitting on one side of the fence by the end of it. My guest, and the person I want to introduce you to is Suzy Urbaniak, the purple coloured, spiky haired, passionate educator who is driven to make a change in education policy and also bring about education reform. She is a wildcard, and if someone is likely to make a change to how we see curriculums...


Episode 2 | Becoming Principal of Largest School in Australia, Why You Should Reward Teachers Publicly, And Innovation - Donella Beare

This was one of those interviews that, after not having breakfast or lunch and doing three recordings back-to-back, you’d expect to be tired and want to go home and collapse. However, I was kind of excited to share this with everyone that I immediately went back and started working on the intro. Donella Beare is the Principal at one of the largest private independent schools in Australia. 2,300 students, 400 staff, across 3 geographical campuses. The school I’m talking about is St...


Episode 1 | The $1 Million Teacher, Nobel Prize for Teaching, and Stephen Hawking's Private Notes - Ric Johnson

This one of the most exciting chats so I want to try and get straight into it.

Most of you are probably already familiar with his name. He is the first Australian to be nominated for the Nobel Prize of Teaching. Equivalent is the Nobel Teaching Prize, where Richard “Rick” (as he’s better...
