As we near the end of what has been a tumultuous year, we want to let you know that our plans to continue blessing our customers as we move into 2021 have seen us bring in a couple of new additions to the Emsi UK team. Ben Owen joins our Further Education team, and will help improve the service we offer to colleges, whilst James Tindale joins our Consulting team, to increase our capacity to deliver more bespoke consulting. Both are extremely well suited to deliver, as their biographies demonstrate.

More recently, he has held Senior Leadership posts at numerous outstanding colleges with strategic responsibilities for Schools Engagement, Student Recruitment, Careers, Student Support, Marketing, Business Development as well as Business Planning. Ben also spent time on several Association of Colleges’ Policy groups focusing on Mental Health, SEND and International Curriculum, and participated in the ETF/Said Business School Preparation for CEO Programme in 2019 that was created to develop future FE leaders.
