    ‘I am both a listener and a past interviewee on The Edtech Podcast and I can’t recommend it highly enough: it’s an excellent resource.’

    ‘Sophie has combined her years of connections with her entrepreneurial spirit to create something the sector has needed for a while – a non-partisan, well-informed, tech- and business-savvy podcast about the Edtech industry and the educational aims it is supposed to serve. Her enthusiasm and encyclopaedic knowledge of the market complement an enquiring outlook, meaning that her interviews on the podcast are always informative and perceptively targeted. I recommend her work wholeheartedly.’

    ‘In addition to being an avid supporter of the downright brilliant EdTech Podcast, which has completely over taken my playlist to become my go-to commuting soundtrack, I’ve also had the pleasure of working with Sophie Bailey on a number of projects. Sophie asks the questions I’d want to ask and her experience of the sector and the gift she has with building an instant rapport with people shines through in each episode. Listen for yourself – I dare you not to get hooked! There’s not much more to say: Sophie Bailey is the queen of EdTech, the Podcast is blooming brilliant and they both rock.’

    ‘This podcast is fantastic, covering all the latest cutting-edge thinking from around the world on EdTech. It covers EdTech from many angles and the interviews are always brilliant and insightful, with high-profile practitioners and speakers. The festival is equally amazing – went last September and it was one of the best small festivals I have attended. I really can; speak highly enough of both the podcast and the festival; they are excellent in every way.’
