About us

No-nonsense, expert-led consultancy focused on outcomes, not hot air.

A united passion for EdTech transformation

In 2018, two women sat on a rooftop patio in Madrid, sipping Rioja. Whilst the view was fantastic, their outlook, not so much. They were frustrated with the number of companies getting bad advice leading to poor decisions and disheartened users.

They knew how successful EdTech transformations should be done. But making this change would mean taking big risks and committing themselves to being honest, even if the baby is ugly. This candour could either work, or backfire spectacularly.

And at that moment, Amanda Nolen and Lori Niles-Hofmann raised their glasses and decided to go all in. And the outcome has been spectacular.

An honest approach to consultancy

At NilesNolen, we’re founded on honesty. We’re a small team with a big mindset. We’ve set out to make real, deliberate change. We want the EdTech industry to look beyond quick-fix solutions and are here to help you transform learning into a competitive advantage.
