Glenn started his career in direct marketing and advertising, both of which have been transformed by technological advances over the last 40 years. Across graphic design, digital imagery, marketing production, film, music and video software, Glenn has embraced and then mastered each new capability.
It is important to note that all the product: the name, brand, illustration, graphic design, UI design, animation and video collateral that comprises Selfsuite® has been conceived and produced personally by Glenn. This hands-on capability, along with the contributions of the other founders has made the venture almost entirely self-sufficient since its inception.
After graduating from Cambridge with a degree in Natural Sciences, Patrick carried out the technical and commercial appraisal of large-scale oil and gas projects for BP before transitioning to an academic career. In the very earliest days of the Web he built the first online social network for teenagers studying science at school and college, winning an international award and going on to develop this work through an astronomical telescope project he devised and directed in Russia.
From his long career as an academic and family consultant, Patrick has in-depth knowledge of education systems and the data associated with them, coupled with an understanding of the multiplicity of choices facing young people as they influence their education and future life opportunities.
Ed has enjoyed the benefits of a long and successful career in the technology business. He brings both a business and technology skill-set, focused on software and software-driven products, to the Selfsuite endeavour. Having focused his attention on software technologies for five decades, he is as comfortable and capable at writing code as he is at contributing to business, financial and technology strategy.
Toby started his working life as a Technical Author at Rolls Royce.
Seeing the emergence of information technologies and the internet he retrained himself and mastered both front and back-end web construction. His skills, knowledge and experience helped him secure a Web Developer position, quickly moving into a Technical Project management role at Wiley in Oxford, one of the world’s leading online education publishers.
Over the last two years Toby has made a significant contribution to the development of Selfsuite®. His involvement with the Selfsuite® project is now concluded. Toby recently secured a new role at Ocado Technology to pursue his career in Project management, delivering large-scale software solutions.
