Inspired Founder, Chairman & CEO
In 2013, Nadim M. Nsouli founded Inspired, establishing a definitive statement of excellence in private international education by re-evaluating traditional teaching methods, and creating a new model for modern education in a student-centred approach to learning whilst delivering a globally relevant curriculum. Today, 80,000 students in 24 countries thrive in 111 world-leading Inspired schools, accessing a contemporary approach to education and achieving outstanding examination results in internationally recognised programmes.
Following the Group's first acquisition of Reddam House, a leading group of premium schools in South Africa, Nadim rapidly expanded the growing community of schools by acquiring existing exceptional education providers and building state-of-the-art bespoke greenfield campuses worldwide.
A decade after conception, Nadim's innovative vision remains unchanged: Inspired provides world-class education via a holistic, progressive model to young, respectful individuals who are empowered by their learning, confident in their abilities, and well-equipped to achieve success.
