Sunshine Coast parents and carers are invited to a Flinders Speaker Series event on the ‘Future of Education’ featuring multi-award-winning educator and entrepreneur Nicole Dyson in the Flinders Performance Centre from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Monday, 13 November 2023.
Nicole Dyson is a global authority on project-based learning and youth entrepreneurship, and the founder of Future Anything, an award-winning education provider.
She passionately believes that youth-led ideas have the power to bend the future.
Nicole will share her insights on how we can support, equip and inspire our young people to make a meaningful impact in their communities and the wider world.
Her presentation will explore the importance of developing an enterprising mindset and building the essential skills and capabilities to confidently navigate an ever-evolving landscape.
Over the past two years, Nicole has been working closely with students and staff in the Flinders Primary School to help the younger generation learn how to unlock their passion and potential.
For example, in Term 3, Nicole guided the Flinders Year 6 cohort through the high-energy, all-day Activate workshop on ‘how to design a social enterprise’, whether they want to help tackle problems, improve communities, protect the environment or support people in need with jobs or opportunities.
Nicole was listed in the inaugural ‘40 Under 40 Awards’ for Queensland in 2023 - a globally recognised program that celebrates the impact of the finest young Queensland leaders and entrepreneurs.
She also won the ‘Gamechanger Award’ which recognises a person who has “re-written the rules of business to challenge, inspire and spark significant change.”
Nicole was named in The Educator’s “Most Influential” list for 2023, acknowledging 45 educators significantly influencing culture and reform within Australia’s education sector, and was the recipient of SBE’s ‘Unsung Hero’ Award in 2022.
Parents, carers and staff from the College are invited, along with parents and carers from the Sunshine Coast community.
Refreshments | 6:00pm
