Jane holds a PhD in education policy studies and is currently an independent education and development consultant. She has 30 years of experience and research in public and private education. She launched and managed the Education Policy Unit of the National Business Initiative, followed by 15 years heading the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa (ISASA), where she played a pivotal role in the development of the association. She marketed ISASA vigorously and established its brand while increasing ISASA’s human and physical resources. This reinforced ISASA’s attractiveness to schools as a service provider, and established its reputation as an association of first choice. Jane joined the board in January 2017.
