Meet the Board

The head masters who lend us their wisdom

Alexis Guillot

Chair

Alexis is an experienced not-for-profit company director and currently serves in a key leadership role in local government, responsible for coordinating a multi-million-dollar portfolio of projects encompassing infrastructure, social capital, economic development, and diversification. In his free time, Alexis has fun hanging out with his wife Sarah and their 10-month-old boy Oliver. He also enjoys reading governance and legal articles, property investment, and swing dancing. He actually met his wife swing dancing! They enjoy the energy and traditional style of lindy hop swing. When Alexis was in school his favourite subjects were science and biology. For Alexis, education is one of the few things that has proven to have a truly transformative impact on people’s lives, helping them to realise their true potential, reduce inequality, and, over time, build fair and equitable societies. Alexis’s favourite superhero is Batman because he is complex, fierce and without superpowers.

Sean Edwards

Board Director

Sean brings a wealth of business and technology experience to our board. His education culminated in a degree in Engineering which enabled him to enjoy a successful corporate career in technology, ultimately reaching his goal of Chief Information Officer for a major company. In his free time, you can find Sean swimming at the beach, competing in triathlons, travelling and spending time with his beautiful wife and their 5 teenage children. When Sean was in school his favourite subjects were Maths, Physics and Sport. Sean is passionate about education because he believes that education enables people to fulfill their desires and continually learn, improve and achieve. Sean’s favourite superhero is Batman because he has no special powers.

Zoe O’Neill

She is a keen collaborator, connector and facilitator, passionate about access to justice issues, mildly obsessed with community outreach and connectivity, a massive IP/Copyright law nerd and an occasional event producer, writer and tertiary lecturer. For Zoe, education is a way to empower people allowing them the freedom to make choices and determine their own path.

Zoe enjoys dancing and has a special love for 1960’s gogo, Brazilian Samba and lindy hop. She also enjoys writing, seeing theatre shows, DJing, hiking and traveling. You may spot Zoe in an advert, music video or feature film – her husband is a filmmaker so she has been cast as an extra many times.
