Education in a Post-COVID World

Insights from a Global Edutech CEO and Ivy League Graduate

Yes, we all agree that 2020 is a historical year that is requiring us to relearn, reevaluate, and restructure our basic life habits. While the world is reshaping, education remains a core value for progress and innovation. So while schools and universities continue, classes have shifted online and education as we know it faces a crucial turning point.

Thus, we’ve invited Jamie Beaton - a global edu-tech Founder and CEO of Crimson Education to teach you how to turn an idea into a successful venture, regardless of your age, how to unleash your true inner talents and what the future of education looks like post-COVID.

It is significant to mention that Jamie was our guest back in 2019 November. Needless to say, It’s been only 6 months since he last joined us, time flies! Since November, there have been many substantial changes in education and therefore it is important for us to understand the new playing-field from a person who’s definitely ahead of his time. Need proof?

Jamie was accepted into the top 25 US & UK universities, graduated from Harvard in 3 years with a Bachelor’s and a Master’s, was one of the youngest students ever at Stanford Graduate School of Business where he earned an MBA and a Master’s in Education and is currently a Rhodes Scholar, all while building, running and maintaining a global education start-up with the hopes of educating the global leaders of the future.

Do not miss this virtual meeting on 15th June at 5 pm (Beijing Time), to learn the following:

1. The story of 25-year-old global CEO of a multi-million dollar company, Harvard, Stanford Graduate and Rhodes scholar at Oxford

2. How students get into the world’s most elite universities

3. Pandemic Education - How Coronavirus will impact education

4. How to prepare for the professions of the future.
