CEO & Founder
I have the privilege of being the CEO and Founder of Giglets Education. This gives me the opportunity to lead our wonderful team, strategy and vision for our future growth and development. All the while the role means that I get to see the impact our products and services make to children and young people on a daily basis. Every day is different, challenging and rewarding - mostly in equal measure!
Founding and growing a business with a close-knit team is a rollercoaster like no other. There have been so many key proud moments. Since I’m CEO I’m going to break the rules and give you two of my top ones. The first was when we won an award called ScotEDGE in 2013, this provided us with £46,500 of grant funding that gave us the oxygen to be able to invest in the prototype of the Giglets platform - without that money, at that moment, we might not be here today.The second was in March 2022 when we successfully completed the acquisition of the business to the leading Nordic EdTech player, ILT Education, in a private equity backed deal by the social impact investor, Trill Impact. To have a global business from an overseas market recognise the value and power of what we do, having really started from an idea at school left me feeling hugely proud.
Stimulating, challenging and rewarding.
