Episode 04 – JJ Rosa
To celebrate week 1 of our CEO Ben Findlay being out on the road on his 1,000-mile charity bike ride in memory of our co-founder, Eric Findlay, and to raise money for mental health charity Mind, Ben caught up with his good friend, singer and musician JJ Rosa to talk all things mental health.
In this episode, the amazingly talented JJ Rosa & her Mum Moyra talk about the music business in relation to mental health, their unique and supportive mother-daughter relationship, and getting through the challenges of anxiety and overcoming it on a daily basis.
Episode 03 – Chloe Barrett
Last week, Ben caught up with the inspiring ed-tech entrepreneur, Chloe Barrett, who is the founder and CEO of Immersify Education, previously known as DigiDentistry.
In this episode, Chloe talks coming from a hard-working family of innovators, how she broke through the class bracket to be a champion horse rider, and then when the worst happened, how she bounced back and became a huge success in tech despite the gender imbalance.
This is an amazing story and a must listen to anyone in need of a pick me up.
Chloe has been a professional dressage rider, winning many competitions and obtaining sponsorships. A dental professional, dental education quality assurer, and director, now on her second start-up after previously building a dental education company and then creating Immersify Education to save costs, time and target all learning domains.
Today, Immersify Education is an advanced way of learning using interactive augmented reality, animation, rich multimedia, personalised learning and gamification.
Immersify Education resources are like nothing else on the market, saving academic time and consequently institutional costs. The content is created in collaboration between renown authors and topic area experts, developers, learning technologists and translators, specifically to target all learning domains in multiple languages, to better engage students, improve information retention and ultimately increase academic grades.
