My name is Paul Blackmore. I am the Divisional Head for Student Employability and Academic Success at the University of Exeter, directing several award-winning teams who support the employability, placement learning and global experiences of 23,000 students via the curriculum and extracurricular activity. I have served on expert communities for several years, including the EAIE Expert Community Employability, and have assisted universities, graduate employers, professional associations and governments in reviewing related services and strategies. I have also served in a variety of diverse roles in higher education. I have delivered more than 100 keynotes and masterclasses at regional, national and international level across various education sectors and industries, chaired numerous associated conferences and assisted as a team member of numerous planning committees for conferences, training events and publications. I believe that my unique set of skills, my creativity and leadership, my commitment to working in communities of practice and my diverse work history in an internationalised context would enable me to ensure that the association operates according to the best interests of its members.
