I have always believed that our education should prepare us to Live a better Life not just prepare us for a Livelihood. Our school systems and parents give way too much importance to academics and grades and my life’s purpose has been to shift that focus to Learning from Life and my mission is to Make Lessons of Life.
Over the past 20 years I have had amazingly varied experiences working with schools, corporate, governments, industry bodies and different countries. I have worn many hats as part of this journey – life skills facilitator, publisher, writer, author, film maker, event manager, entrepreneur, researcher, content creator, education policy advisor, film festival director, and many more. I have been fortunate to have studied in many countries, taught & worked in many countries, travelled extensively across all continents. All these experiences have shaped the way I think about Life and about education. I have a perspective that is very varied from the regular and that is what I share in my blog – Sultan Speaks.
Sultan Speaks is an insight into my mind, my thoughts and my ideas about Life in general and education in particular and how we should reimagine education.
