In this episode, we chat with Phil Denton, CEO and founder of Evaluate-Ed - a school improvement solution that streamlines self-evaluation and school improvement planning through the software.

Phil made a career transition from being a head teacher to becoming an entrepreneur in the ed-tech start-up world. He shares insights about his journey, including how he got the taste for the ed-tech business world whilst writing a book alongside Tranmere Rovers football manager, Micky Mellon, called ‘The First 100 Days’ - which takes anecdotes from Premier League managers about being successful over your first 100 days and how we can apply this in a role and beyond.
