“I used to be a headteacher of a special school, wrote several books on visual teaching strategies and was a trainer in schools and colleges for nearly a decade. After an inspired visit to the 2008 Berlin VizThink conference, I invented the HOW2s — visual step-by-step guides to teaching techniques. Now, I design and illustrate books, produce poster summaries of educational ideas, create visual branding, visualise CPD packages, and make the occasional presentation in the UK and Europe.”
