Ewan McIntosh, the CEO and Founder of NoTosh, joins me on my podcast to share how the COVID19 public health crisis has impacted the work that he and his team have been doing around the world. In this episode, Ewan discusses what he has learned about himself, his global company, and how he and his team of innovative colleagues have managed to navigate the tricky waters caused by this pandemic.
Ewan also share a few of the many successes that NoTosh has had over the years and the specific work that he and his team have done helping to transform schools in a way that gives them greater clarity and purpose. Ewan is inspired to keep reflecting on ways that he and his NoTosh team can refine the work that they do in order to keep making a difference in the lives of the people and organizations that they feel so lucky to serve.
Leading projects around the world for clients in education and industry, Ewan is the passionate and energising tour de force behind NoTosh. A highly-regarded keynote speaker at events around the world, he’s also the author of How To Come Up With Great Ideas and Actually Make Them Happen and regularly writes about learning on our NoTosh Medium Blog.
"As a French and German high school teacher in Scotland back in the 1990s, I wanted to find new ways to help students engage with my subjects – I felt strongly that technology was both critical to achieving this and remained underused in the classroom, so my classes were among the first in Europe to podcast and blog as part of their daily learning.
"From here, it was a reasonably logical step to become National Advisor on Learning and Technology Futures for the Scottish Government... although joining Channel 4 as their Digital Commissioner in 2008 was a step in a different direction. But it was while I was with Channel 4 that I became fascinated by the strategies and tactics that my creative colleagues used to create imaginative and truly engaging digital services for young people. Could I take this insight and make it work in an education setting? Yes, I reckoned I could... and that’s how NoTosh came about."
