He is a national award-winning teacher who keeps his focus firmly on providing opportunities and career paths for our future engineers and leaders.

Will McNeil, UK

We’re excited to once again welcome, Will McNeil, Head of International Sales at WCBS, who will discuss how wellbeing is supported through the adoption of cloud native technologies and HUBmis, both inside and outside of the classroom. By maximising communication, tracking in real-time and intelligent reporting, the whole school approach to student wellbeing and mental health can be further supported by implementing the very latest technologies.

Since graduating from the University of Bristol with a BSc in Chemistry, Will has spent his career within the EdTech industry working with industry leading providers across the UK. Now Head of International at WCBS, Will supports schools in understanding the true benefits of cloud native systems, how to best utilise the very latest technology to avoid wasting time and money, and the warning signs to look out for when evaluating new tools in order to prevent frustration later on.

The Virtual Education Conference was a wonderful opportunity to connect with generous and knowledgeable colleagues from across our own country and across the world. The message that even at the height of the Covid-19 crisis, we are connected to a global community of educators was powerful, and reinforced the fact that there is always something we can learn. The sharing of support and good practice has continued after the conference ended - thank you for organising.
