Ian Smith


As a teacher, I am inspired to connect youth with their passion and purpose, kindling an entrepreneurial mindset for lifelong learning. Vice Principal and Head of Secondary at GEMS World Academy Kochi, in the state of Kerala, South India, I am honoured to represent Sanchild as Director of Education. Currently, we are developing a project to promote an idealistic mindset for advocacy and agency around the UN SDGs. As a teachSDGs ambassador with the UN, I recently co-created the Global Entrepreneurial Leaders (GEL) Youth Summit hosted at the UN Palais des Nations in Geneva, held in November 2018 and 2019, connecting over five hundred students from across the world with social entrepreneurs. I hold an executive MBA (Education) and the Queens Award for Enterprise, a lifetime honour in recognition for the promotion of social entrepreneurship in UK schools and universities.
