Faith and the Entrepreneur: Conversation with Henry Kaestner

Personally, I've always been driven to understand the entrepreneur as I believe most innovators in education have an entrepreneurial spirit.

Henry Kaestner is Managing Partner of Sovereign's Capital, and Co-founder and previous CEO of Bandwidth. Mr. Kaestner has been involved in a number of other ventures, and has a second podcast entitledFaith Driven Investor (www.faithdriveninvestor.org).

In this conversation, I have the opportunity to talk about the past decade of the Cardus Education Survey (https://www.cardus.ca/research/education/) with Ray Pennings as the third installment of the US data will be released in October and 11 case studies from Canada will be published. Ray and I talk about how the differing school sectors actually provide a greater and more robust education system and that through this work in Education we need to have a greater imagination when it comes to systemic change in both the United States and Canadian systems. Ray Penningsco-founded Cardus in 2000 and currently serves as Executive Vice President. Ray has a vast amount of experience in Canadian industrial relations and has been involved in public policy discussions and as a political activist at all levels of government.

Dismantle the Wall & Uncage the Soul: Conversation with John Waller

John Waller founded Uncage the Soul Productions in 2004 after sampling a career variety pack that included being an adventure guide, jumping smoke on a hotshot crew, and a year as a high school science teacher. He lives along the edge of the Impassable Wilderness in Portland, directing, producing, and editing adventure documentaries, commercial shorts, and cause-related campaigns. The mission of Uncage the Soul is to capture the wonder that is around us and compel the wonder that is within us. For more info check out www.uncagethesoul.com I met John on my Iceland trek this summer where I got to watch him at work, and I was intrigued by how the name of his company reflected who he is, the work he does, and the mission of the company. I believe you will find some great insights especially at the end when I ask him for a final piece of advice for educators.

Teacher Well-being & Australian Research: Daniel Pampuch

Daniel Pampuch is CEO of Christian Schools Australia, and one of my favorite professionals to follow on Twitter (@daniel_pampuch). Recently, he posted some research from Australia on teacher well-being that I found quite interesting especially since it has been a point of conversation in my own life as well as on this podcast. This is a longer conversation with a short interruption in the middle, but I think Daniel has loaded his comments full of information for consideration and further conversation on building a healthier profession.
