A lifelong learner, Warren is passionate about education's impact in changing people’s lives while uplifting society toward higher-order consciousness. This can only be made possible through an eagerness to learn being met with well curated content, presented in innovative and engaging ways, and underpinned by robust pedagogy. Moreover, institutions need financial resources to meet the growing need for quality education…this Warren refers to as ‘the business of education’.
