LONDON, 5 February 2020 — Global schools organisation Nord Anglia Education (NAE) has today launched its first student-led podcast, A Little Bit of Genius. The new platform gives talented students the chance to put their most pressing questions to those leading change across the worlds of activism, sport, the arts and business.
Today listeners can enjoy podcasts with Daniel Gilbert, founder of an award-winning digital marketing agency Brainlabs, which was named by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies; Deborah Ellis, activist and critically-acclaimed author; and Lord David Puttnam, Oscar-winning film producer of Chariots of Fire. Released to a worldwide audience, listeners will also include 64,000 students across all 66 of NAEs schools who will tune in weekly to hear their peers take to the microphone.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer of Nord Anglia Education, said: “At NAE we pride ourselves on a global education programme which goes far beyond outstanding academics. This podcast has been a fantastic example of what our students are able to achieve simply with the provision of a creative platform. We’d like to thank our wonderful hosts and all of the guests who took part to share their stories and inspire our students.”
