Olivia D Hinds is the creator and host of The Governors' Podcast, a co-opted governor in a selective secondary school and a member of the Joint Advisory Education and Safeguarding Group for a medium-sized MAT/Foundation in Birmingham. Though she wears several hats both inside and outside the education governance space. Since 2017, after successfully completing a corporate governance course, Olivia has been on her governance journey starting as a school governor at the age of 23. With over a decade of experience as a sought-after private tutor and student coach, she champions the younger voice in all of her endeavours.

Olivia is purpose-led and people-focused, and continues to creatively educate current and future generations on how to better understand yourself, work in collaboration with others, and move forward, further and faster. Olivia's proactivity and content delivery in the online/digital, social media and education governance spaces engages and empowers individuals and organisations to first go inward, in order to effectively reach and connect with their communities and wider stakeholder groups. As an unapologetic millennial Black woman, Olivia uses her story and lived experiences to lower barriers and raise aspirations, making your higher self more tangible.
