Olubusola (Busola) Eshiet has a PhD in Education with a focus on early years literacy development. Her drive to achieve a higher literacy rate in Nigeria, and indeed in West Africa has its root in over 30 years of experience as a teacher. In the past 10 years, she has initiated and supervised the implementation of programs leading to the attainment of an increase in teaching skills of teachers and growth in reading and writing skills of pupils.  

Busola has broad experience in pioneering and managing literacy programmes/projects. Her training and mentoring projects have benefitted thousands of Early Years teachers and over a million pupils in countries across West Africa.

 Busola has developed a strong network with literacy experts in top education policy makers, publishers, businesses, academic institutions, and charity organisations in many countries. She speaks at local and international conferences and has published articles in peer-reviewed journals.

She also has a passion for supporting for people mourning different types of losses and regularly volunteers to help bereaved people.

A lover of books, she is contributing her bit to replenish the world library of books. She has authored children’s books, textbooks, a handbook on teaching early years literacy, and books on grief support. She has more books coming.

She is the Chief Executive Officer of Optimalpath Consulting.

PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATES

Alison Bowie

Alison Bowie.jpg

Alison Bowie graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Health Sciences from the University of Aberdeen in the 1990s and was involved in Health Services research for many years, which made good use of her studies in research methodology, epidemiology and statistics. She then spent the next sixteen years in the joyful pursuit of home educating her three children who are now in further and higher education.

 

A lover of words and some would say a ‘stickler’ for accuracy, she delights in proofreading and editing academic essays, journal articles, theses and books of all shapes and sizes. She recently self-published the account of her family’s homeschooling years in a book entitled ‘Our Home education Journey: a family approach to life and learning’ under the name of A.C. Bowie (available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle).

 

She has just taken up a part-time post as a Research Assistant for the Christian Institute.
