Better Angels guest host Tom Fletcher speaks to founder and Country Director Great Britain and Germany of People’s Postcode Lottery, Annemiek Hoogenboom.
A political science graduate, Annemiek started her career as a university lecturer at the University of Amsterdam, before moving to Sudan to set up a new communications faculty at Ahfad University in Omdurman.
As part of Tom's special series on Learning in the Digital Age, listen to Tom speak with Annemiek about how private sector is making a real difference on the ground for the global education crisis, sometimes ahead of NGOs and government.
Annemiek discusses with Tom how her personal experiences in Sudan shaped her passion for education, a passion which now shapes the work of the People’s Postcode Lottery, one of the largest donors in the world finding solutions to the global education crisis.
This special series of Sarah Brown’s Better Angels podcast follows Tom Fletcher, diplomat and global education campaigner, as he travels from the Beqaa Valley to Silicon Valley to find out how we can learn the right things in the right way to thrive in the Digital Age. Tom asks everyone - from Prime Ministers to tech CEOs to movie stars and a classroom of 12-year olds - about the key lessons that made them who they are, what future generations need to take humanity forward, and how to unleash this opportunity?
Episode one of the series explores the overarching question: What should future generations learn in order to thrive in the Digital Age?

Prof. Fadi Daou, entrepreneur and journalist Emma Sinclair and Chief Executive of the British Library Roly Keating, Tom explores what is at the core of a good education with these entrepreneurs, politicians and thinkers.
