Spain and Qatar

The end of this year brought two memorable international experiences: first in Madrid keynoting the Global Education Forum, and then in Doha speaking at the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE).

Madrid led to two interviews, both available online (in Spanish): a print interview in El Pais, and a TV interview for the program REDES by the lively, smart and engaging Eduard Punset.

In Doha, on a panel about "21st Century Skills", I presented 120 slides in just under 11 minutes, waking up an audience used to more traditional presentations, and keeping them, in the words of one, "on the edge of their seats." The presentation was featured in an article in Gulf News.

You can get either of the presentations by emailing me at

Happy holidays, all!
