Nik Bishop has over 25 years' experience in leading International Schools in Qatar, Malaysia, China, Malawi and Norway covering British curriculum, three programme IB schools and hybrid models. Nik has served on a multitude of boards including AISA, NEASC, FOBISSEA (as it was prior to FOBISIA) and the IB Heads’ council. In recognition of the common challenges of governance in international schools, Nik created a Board Essentials video series, which is aimed specifically at the boards and leaders of international schools and which provides over 40 videos covering the breadth of the board’s responsibilities and deep-dives into the more complex and sensitive issues that exist in all schools. Given the impact of COVID these "on demand" style videos provide busy board members appropriate opportunities for "flipped training" to gain insights and perspectives and then to discuss the implications during a meeting or retreat.
Nik also runs custom face to face board training, COVID restrictions permitting.
