Hi, I am Maren Deepwell (she/her/hers) former CEO and professional coach, working with organisations and emerging leaders in education and the not-for-profit sector.

As CEO of the Association for Learning Technology (ALT), I led the charity’s highly successful transition to becoming a virtual team in 2018, leading to the publication of my first book Leading Virtual Teams – Field Notes from a CEO. From 2012 – 2023 I championed professional recognition for digital education professionals, working with senior leaders and policy makers across sectors.

I give invited talks and keynotes on a broad range of topics to UK and international audiences, such as learning technology future vision & impact and professionalisation & accreditation and write widely about open education and the ethics of educational technology.

Alongside my work for ALT, I started to work as a consultant over 15 years ago. I work with organisations to provide external expertise for strategic, policy and change management projects, external facilitation for strategy days and group coaching for teams. Coaching teams offers me a chance to be involved in building team cultures that are effective and inclusive.

With a background in Anthropology and Fine Art and over 10 years experience in an executive position, I bring creativity and curiosity to my work as a coach with a focus on leadership and career development, managing change and creative problem solving. Coaching individuals gives me the opportunity to support career development and help emerging leaders find their path.
