Featured Topics

Future of Humanity

As an impact and journey driven strategic leader, Déborah is interested in the cutting-edge and in predicting what opportunities, risks and trends will occur in both the near-term and long-term future. Futurist Leader Déborah seeks out the cutting-edge, and armed with a broad spectrum of knowledge, she deciphers how technologies and practices can either be innovated or leveraged in intelligent ways right now, or in the future. Déborah blends research with her own knowledge and new information to predict trends, before considering strategy for the future. She has a particular ability to see most scenarios like a map, either looking down at an overall view, or as a tree branching out with different scenarios, options, risks, benefits and solutions. She then finds an optimal pathway to a goal or solution, using a blend of logic and creativity. She has the ability see patterns and make interesting connections, which helps when formulating a roadmap with creative and logical actions and ideas, but also for disaster prevention. Deborah can collaborate on an insightful brief for a keynote speech to cover specific themes and potentially set the scene for further specialist subject-matter speakers.

Take a look at Deborah's blog at halfgeekhalfhuman.net for a flavour of topics and insights.

Future of Media and Education

With a focus on ethics, opportunity, risk reduction and cultural evolution, Deborah delivers thought-provoking insights about the future of media and education enabled by new and upcoming technologies, process and leadership styles.

Deborah passed my exam, which she took for fun, in early 2016, but before joining carefully considered what the membership truly represented.

Deborah joined Mensa not only because she enjoys solving puzzles, but more importantly because "it aims to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity". She feels that this mission sits well alongside that of Digital Skills Authority which supports economic empowerment, and enables individuals to succeed in their careers, business, non-profit and charitable ventures.

Why Online Education will not Replace Classroom
Digital Skills Authority
April 20, 2020
Extract: “Education is about quality, choice, price, access and impact”, says Collier “Classroom learning
enables relationship building, one-to-one interaction, closer monitoring and nurturing of students, as
well collective workshops in a fun environment. E-Learning does not enable this kind of interactive or
consultative approach that classroom group learning does”, she adds

“Live webinars and online classrooms are a great way for trainers to engage with students, providing the length of time is not too long” says Deborah Collier

“My experience of both classroom and online training informs me, that learners can generally cope
with no more than one hour fifteen minutes at a time. Anything more, and they cease to absorb
information. The e-learning industry and corporate Learning & Development departments, know
