Public Speaking

Do you have an EdTech event coming up or a school training meeting that you want a public speaker with a background on the inner world of educational IT Support.

At the age of 24, I have over 6+ year education IT Support experience working in large scale multi academy trusts to managing my own primary school IT support reworking infrastructure, paving the way for cloud based working and empowering everyone to achieve more through technology.

One of the key areas I am still working my way into is the public speaking space to share my journey on the inner world of EdTech.

Previously I have spoken to over 180+ schools through my Microsoft MIE training sessions and discussed the my top tips in transitioning your school to the cloud with the team from NetSupport. My core aim with my MrJSmithson_Edu brand is to empower everyone to achieve more through technology and creating the foundations for more people to experience the true power that technology can have in education. 

My brand new #TrainITLive session is now available in CPD and public speaker form for your staff meetings or conferences.

The EdTech Mindset lifts the lid on the common misconceptions around technology and allows staff to build their own knowledge and confidence ready for their next lesson!

Throughout this brand new session your staff/delegates will be taken on a journey to understand the basic form of technology and how skills that they already have can be used to empower their lessons further to engage and inspire the next generation.

The EdTech Mindset sessions are designed for all staff to take part in. With the way the world is evolving, everyone is now in touch with technology in some form. Ensuring they have the confidence to use it and understand it, will strengthen they way it is used throughout education. From teaching staff to support staff, governors to cleaners. 

More details on the full agenda for the session and running times will be released soon. Discount pricing is available for purchase across multiple schools(cluster training). For more information please email
