"In preparation for launching a number of disruptive digital solutions later this year, we are delighted that Sally has agreed to join us and spearhead the programmes"Neville Gaunt, CEO of Mind Fit Ltd said. "Sally is a rare talent and has a personal passion and purpose aligned to my own to help young people develop the critical soft skills, such as confidence, courage, commitment, leadership and sales that will enhance their employment prospects and better prepare them for their future.
Her depth of experience in technology and extensive research into bridging the gap between education and business will be invaluable in delivering these ambitious developments. Our first digital offer is aimed at enhancing the personal development and employability skills of young people, to be followed by much needed solutions to benefit all age groups.
Sally's drive, skills and vision will accelerate our global expectations to deliver innovative digital solutions to the broadest market reach. This further aligns with our focus on addressing the global issue of poor workforce engagement from an unacceptably low level of 13%(Gallup engagement statistics)and by contrast, help organisations to cultivate strongly engaged and high-performance workplace cultures".
Newly appointed CTO, Sally Eaves said:
"Technology is integral to our everyday lives. But how often do we make do with what we are comfortable with, rather than push to exploit opportunities to improve the way we do things? Removing these blocks to optimal performance is a state of mind. Technology is and will continue to be primarily a mental challenge. It requires perseverance to understand and enhance the way we use existing technologies and creativity to recognise new possibilities and critically, make these a reality. This demands a ‘Can Do' mindset. I am therefore delighted to join the Mind Fit team which also strongly aligns with my long term commitment to support girls, women and other groups that need better representation in education and technology leadership positions."
