Over at LinkedIn colleague and associates can leave endorsements. Here are a few of my favourites.
“After spending 1000+ hours driving to work with Kristian and another 2500+ hours working alongside him at The Wellington Academy (TWA), I am delighted to be in a position to write this recommendation on his behalf. Kristian is an exceptional leader of education. He is compassionate, knowledgeable and forward thinking. In three years he has made a significant difference to the lives of pupils, their families and the staff at TWA. Much of the recent success at TWA is a direct result of his hard work, innovative (mad at times) ideas and high standards.”
Deputy Head Teacher at The Clere School
“I was lucky enough to be taught by Kristian during my time at college as well as having the privileged position of working along side him at Southampton Football Club as an assistant coach. His teaching and coaching styles were incredibly innovative and thought provoking which I always felt produced the best out of me. On a personal level Kristian was always approachable and extremely generous of his time. He took an active and sincere interest in my development which I will always be very grateful for.”
CEO @ COOLAPP
“It is very clear from the first minute you meet Kristian that he has an unrivalled passion for education. His enthusiasm is infectious; his values are sincere. Having worked with Kristian for a while now I have gained a clear insight into his leadership style. Which leads me to say what a pleasure it is to be line managed by him. He understands people as people, and understands how they will operate best. It is this balance which gains him the respect he deserves from both students and staff alike.”
