ALLMe S1:E7 You are not one, you are 10,000 with Olivia Bussey

“When doors are opening, don’t just walk through them – fly. When you are the only ‘different’ person in the room, you not only stand as one, you stand as 10,000 of you.”

In S1:E7 of the Amplifying Diverse Voices podcast, hosted by Priya Bates (she/her) and Advita Patel (she/her), we were delighted to welcome Olivia Bussey, Head of Quality and Compliance & Ofqual Responsible Officer at NCC Education.

Also discussed: changing the narrative by using different strategies, including engagement with other educators.

Olivia derives her personal strength from reading. How about you? What techniques do you use to derive strength?
