WHO’S IN OUR NETWORK – GAYLE ALLEN
Our friend for July is Gayle Allen, an entrepreneur and host of a leading innovation podcast. Gayle recently interviewed Lynda about The 100-Year Life for her Curious Minds series, which reflects her passion for connecting people to innovative ideas that improve their lives. We certainly agree that information about how to live a successful longer life falls into that category.
Gayle is a specialist in Global Innovation and Leadership and adult learning, specialisms which combine in her role as Chief Learning Officer at BrightBytes, an award-winning company that focuses on improving the way the world learns – an area which we think also has great importance as people embark on longer, multi-stage careers. She is also the author of The New Pillars of Modern Teaching and her writing has been featured in MindShift, Huffington Post, She Owns It, and Offscreen Magazine.
You can listen to Gayle’s Curious Minds interview about the 100-Year Life with Lynda online.
