“Kirsten is one of the most knowledgeable figures in the education 2.0 movement. There are few, if any, icons in the education media who have the depth of knowledge and insight that Kirsten does about the future of education on the web.”
Gagan Biyani, Co-Founder Udemy
Being not only a close observer but also part of the education 2.0 movement and startup scene I have developed a good feeling for successful ideas and concepts, and I have seen a lot of startups and projects behind the curtain, talked to many founders and investors and have consulted to a variety of both education startups as well as established brands over the past couple of years.
I helped planning and setting up social media strategies for brands or products, did business development and was involved in the creation of new teaching platforms and services. I also trained and supported the team members to prepare them for the execution of the planned social media strategies, both remote and on location.
Besides writing about education here on KirstenWinkler.com and EDUKWEST, I can also be hired as a contributor to company blogs or publications. I write the Disrupt Education blog on Big Think every week, but I have contributed to a variety of blogs in education, ranging from teacher-centered websites to thought-leadership publications.
Speaking & Moderation
Being a blogger and interviewer, speaking at events & conferences, moderating and organizing events, panels and fireside chats about education or social media is a natural part of my work.
The This Week in Startups Paris Meetup that I founded in 2010 and that I organize and host as part of the ThisWeekIn.com network by Jason Calacanis has established itself as one of the most recognized startup events in the French capital.
If you are interested in hiring me as consultant for your project, writer for your publication or speaker / host of your event, feel free to get in touch via LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ or the contact form on this blog.
