I am a fully certified programme, project and change manager, passionate about both education and technology.
Over the last decade, I worked for large technology corporations and about four years ago I started my journey in the higher education sector.
I specialise in implementing large-scale organisational transformation programmes and projects as well as process improvements, helping businesses reach their full potential.

Scott Riddle

With a background in writing and publishing for children with The Five Mile Press and Roland Harvey Studios, I have a particular interest in innovative ways to engage and educate young people. Put together with my experience in building and sustaining a niche media business for over 20 years, RocketShoes aligns many of my skills with my values.

Finn Macken


Over the course of my research career, I have been in charge of projects ranging from marketing analysis to educational disruption. Along with RocketShoes, I have worked as a researcher at the coworking space Hatch Quarter and the educational technology startup FourthRev, jobs which have led me to develop a broad understanding of education and emerging tech. I am the founder of Synthesizable, a research startup specialising in data synthesis and analysis.
