To most people, including myself, Intel is the leading chip maker that manufactures the processors in the computers that we use.

The company is also heavily involved in helping educational organisations and government bodies harness technology to reinvent teaching and learning for the younger generation.

I had the pleasure of listening to key executives in Intel Education over lunch earlier this week during the Bett Asia Leadership Summit in Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands.

John Galvin – a vice president of the Sales and Marketing Group and general manager of Intel Education at Intel Corporation – hosted the lunch and shared his experience in setting global strategy and implementation of innovative technology solutions to advance education worldwide.

Sam Al-Schamma – the Regional Education Sector Director for Intel in Asia Pacific & Japan – talked about working with the education ecosystem across Asia to deliver world class solutions that address the educational sector’s technology needs and challenges.

Eileen Lento, Ph.D – the director of Global Education Marketing and Advocacy at Intel Corporation – advocates for and delivers integrated marketing strategies and tactics to help governments and educators drive education transformation around the world.
