Chairman

Julian Dinsdale has a solid background in operating technology companies  and raised significant funds for investments in the private and public equity markets in Australia, UK, Europe and USA.

He was also a founder of the Australian Institute of Advanced Learning that has provided advanced learning techniques into schools, institutions, police, insurance industry, armed forces and company boards.

Julian, like John, wants to raise average STEM literacy across Australia - not just improve it in areas of high relative social advantage. For both Julian and John, this means concentrating on the Primary sector

Director

John Phillips is a systems engineer with extensive international telecommunications project and employee relations experience. He manages education projects for The Warren Centre, and co-founded SLAM Education in Newcastle.

John was promoting STEM well before it entered mainstream consciousness, and is now actively supporting only those projects and initiatives which are sustainable over the long term, and have the potential to raise the level of STEM literacy
