What's in this episode?

This week we throw-back to a "pre-coronavirus" recording with Hector MacAulay, Managing Director at international infrastructure and manufacturing company Balfour Beatty. We chat about talent pipeline, technology and training and why getting up at the crack of dawn in your first teenage job sets you up for life.

Following on from our chat with Hector, Ian Hurd is out and about at this year’s Bett and you’ll hear from a range of attendees about everything from avoiding plagiarism, developing attention and calm in the workspace, and skills development in AI with stories from the UK, via Israel and the UAE.

We kick off the episode with a listener feature on the Edtech 50 evening with Nicole Ponsford, Becki Bawler, and Caroline Keep from the Gender Equality Collective then, a message from HundrED.
