Guided by Design Thinking, AI, and our signature SPARK Framework

Bridging the gap between technology and humanity through innovative learning solutions

Technology alone won't accelerate innovation—we have to invest in learning experiences for people.

The work I do empowers both educational leaders and students to navigate the AI landscape with confidence after developing a clear vision. My goal is to bridge the gap between technology and the human experience to create a future where both coexist with strong leadership and empathy.

Interactive Keynote: 
“Your Human Advantage in an AI-World”

In a world where technology is prevalent and time feels limited, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the inefficiencies within those hours. We’re collectively striving for more meaningful moments within those hours, and it’s leading to a growing call to rekindle our inherent human strengths. Yet, there’s a delicate balance to strike—one that harnesses the power of technology while preserving what makes us human. 

In AI as your Teammate,” we explore the possibilities for what this looks like for your organizaiton. This thought-provoking session challenges us to embrace the potential of AI and digital transformation while holding onto our core humanity. It’s not about replacing our capabilities, it’s about amplifying them. It’s about infusing the heart and soul of human connection into the cold, calculated precision of technology. 

At its core, this keynote is guided by Design Thinking, a people-centric approach that seamlessly aligns with the educational landscape. Through the lens of Design Thinking, we’ll address and reframe the challenges educators face on a daily basis. Then, we’ll craft evidence-based solutions that prioritize empathy, creativity, and human connection. This journey will bridge the gap between humanity and technology in a profound way.

Prepare to step into a future where we don’t merely adapt to technological shifts—we harness it, influence it, and let it bolster the most valuable resource we have: our humanity. 



I'm Dr. Sabba Quidwai

When I graduated school in 2007, I thought I was prepared for success. I was wrong.

The recession hit hard and like many others, I faced job loss and uncertainty. It was scary and confusing because despite doing what I was “supposed to” by achieving Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, I still found myself struggling.

Then in 2012, I read “Linchpin” by Seth Godin, and it changed how I approached my career. I began sharing my skills, my strengths, and passions through a portfolio, which allows me to create an aligned professional network.

My portfolio and speaking confidence turned my situation around. I transitioned from facing layoffs to being recruited by the University of Southern California and Apple, where I became an Education Leadership Executive. And ultimately, starting my own business.

When I graduated again in 2020 (during another world crisis), I was prepared for a changing work environment. I was leading with a new vision for what was possible and transforming my research into tangible outcomes that laid the foundation for this company.

Designing your future should not happen by accident.

Back in 2007, I lacked the knowledge to set goals that aligned with the evolving job landscape. I didn’t understand how to showcase my work online and create meaningful connections, but that all changed this time around.

 Today’s youth can’t afford to wait as the world evolves rapidly around this. This program sets them up for success by knowing how to be strategic about what’s next and creating a plan so they’re not left behind.
