John is a certified Professional within the APMP and passionate about education. He has worked in the education technology market for over 16 years. He is the Director of Global Proposal Management at Blackboard where he continuously drives the development of his team and their ability to stay ahead of client and industry trends. John leads a great team which have all become APMP certified over the last 2 years.
Living in the UK for the last 8 years and working at the global proposal level for the past 6, John has seen the world through new eyes. The APMP community has made it seem smaller as we all connect and share with each other, while learning the unique cultures, challenges and opportunities across the globe and inside different markets has made it seem much more rich and vast.
John is excited to support other’s journeys to develop further and broaden their opportunities for growth and success. He is keen to share with businesses and educational institutions what our profession does and the value it brings. He will work towards bringing more and higher quality professional development opportunities to the APMP community.
As Chief Development Officer for APMP UK, John looks forward to supporting all the wonderful members on their own development journeys.
