Welcome to this first episode of The Edge: Innovation and Intelligence Imperative, a new series from the makers of The Edtech Podcast, supported by Salesforce.Org. This series is all about the leaders in higher education doing things a bit differently. There's more about what we've got coming up here

We talk about trust in a mistrustful time. Plus, How can new and old(er) Universities leapfrog legacy issues? Why is digital marketing and admissions not always about volume but about curating the right cohort of future leaders? How can the cultures of academia and new agile methodologies be reconciled? All this and more in this week's episode! Plus, some practical suggestions from our guests that you can implement today. 

Enjoy!
