Dr Sangeet Bhullar, Executive Director, WISE KIDS.

Sangeet is the Founder and Executive Director of WISE KIDS, a non-profit organisation providing innovative training programmes and consultancy in New Media, Internet and Mobile Technologies, Internet Proficiency, Literacy and Safety. An older Digital Native, trained as an Electrical Engineer, she believes strongly in the potential of Internet and Mobile technologies to transform learning, youth, community and business development. She also believes in the need for Internet opportunity and literacy programmes to help people better understand the Internet, assess risk and take advantage of opportunities online whilst maintaining their personal safety.

Sangeet has extensive experience developing content and delivering training programmes in these areas. Sangeet is also on a number of government and non-government groups where she promotes Digital Inclusion and New Media Literacy. These include the Welsh Assembly Government Digital Inclusion Management Board, WISP – Wales Internet Safety Partnership (where she is Chair), the UK Council for Child Internet Safety, the BBC’s Broadcasting (now Audience) Council for Wales and Ofcom Wales Media Literacy Network (where she is a committee member). She has spoken at international conferences, been an external examiner, written guidance, and provided training across Britain, Singapore and Malaysia.

She is married to a Welshman, and has three children. Prior to June 2002, Sangeet and her family lived and worked for nearly ten years in Singapore. She enjoys family life, haiku poetry, photography, reading and trekking.
