He is the former CEO of Covey Leadership Center, which, under his stewardship, became the largest leadership development company in the world.

  • Roger James Hamilton is Founder and CEO of Genius Group, a multi-million-dollar group of companies including GeniusU, Genius Institute and Genius School. GeniusU is an Edtech platform providing over 1.8 million students with personalised learning paths and is currently seeing over 1000 new students join each day. Genius School provides education courses for young people from 0 to 25 years old, and Genius Institute provides training courses from 25 to 100 years old.

He is the creator of Wealth Dynamics, Talent Dynamics and Impact Dynamics, used by over 2 million entrepreneurs to follow their flow.

All the speakers will discuss the recent education innovation boom and the need to equip children with the skills to be entrepreneurial self-starters. As we march towards a Society 5.0, the skills to create a job rather than get a job will become invaluable, and as a result education technology, remote mentoring, and personalised learning have seen an enormous uptake of investment and attention across the globe.

Despite the returning opportunity for in-person learning and working, many are choosing not to go back to their schools and offices, in favor of virtual capabilities. With this shift comes a huge opportunity for every student, every teacher, trainer, coach, consultant, educator and speaker to find out more about the pathways available for remote learning.

The Summit is being hosted digitally with 4000+ entrepreneurs and students expected to join.

Roger James Hamilton, Founder and CEO of Genius Group comments:

The global training and education market will reach $10 trillion in size by 2030. It is the biggest industry in the world ready for disruption. As we go from industrial one-size-fits-all education and training to personalised mentorship and digital learning, we will see a huge shift in mindset across the globe. Over the course of the Global Education Summit, we will explore what the future of education will look like and how everyone can get involved.

The Global Education Summit is part of a larger Education Festival organised by Genius Group, also including a 2-day Wealth Dynamics Workshop on the 15th and 16th July, and a 4-week interactive Microschool for educators and community builders from the 19th of July to the 13th of August.
