About the Speaker

Kevin Skeoch, Head of School, Dwight International School Seoul

My experience, training and capabilities in establishing profitable schools, turning around underperforming educational institutions and creating prestigious international brands has led to wider impacts; creating future business leaders, generating wealth for investors and developing future communities. I’m an innovator at heart, turning concepts into reality via the design and implementation of robust strategies across process and culture change, communications and marketing. I’ve created globally competitive schools through managing organisational restructures and redesigns, instilling pride for both staff and students and implementing modern teaching methods. I’m skilled in designing policies, procedures and cultures that drive success and the highest levels of performance and am considered a thought leader in educational start-up consultancy. An accreditor and authoriser across two school boards, I am recognised as a subject matter expert in how to develop curricula, teachers, students, educational programmes and schools to become the best they can be.
