Hi, I'm Margaux Pelen. I am currently serving as the Chief Operating Officer at CodeControl.io, a future of work company.
I've also been an independent consultant and advisor specialized in adult Education and New Work since 2014 and started the Learning Studio, a boutique collective of freelancers-educators.
I am currently serving as the Chief Operating Officer of CodeControl.io, a Berlin-based startup crafting the future of work. Since 2014, I am also an independent consultant with an entrepreneurial and edtech expertise. I founded the Learning Studio, a European collective of freelancers-educators. We work to design, test, and implement new education offers and services for the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Embracing tomorrow's opportunities through new education offers.
Our world is evolving fast and faces serious challenges, yet some new opportunities emerge in the process. As our economy evolves, new jobs emerge and corresponding new trainings can constitute a solid bridge towards them.
By designing the necessary training programs, I want to equip individuals with the right mindset, attitude, and skillset.
INspiration & Research
From community spaces in one of Colombia's former slums to guilds organisation in the 15th century, inspiration comes from various and unexpected places. I've travelled to 10+ countries to learn from how technology and education mingle, studying the simplest yet most efficient technologies like SMS or radio.
In parallel, I also constantly look into existing models to approach short lifelong learning programs to support individual who want to upskill on latest and most-demanded skill.
I have been curating a shared database. Feel free to share more of them!
