Ed Stout, Support Services Manager at Leeds Beckett University, UK.
I have a real passion for technology and for making a positive difference with those around me. I therefore really enjoy my job in supporting the application and maintenance of technology to benefit students and staff within our educational setting at Leeds Beckett University.
I have worked in Higher Education and specifically at Leeds Beckett University for a little over 10 years in a variety of technical roles before taking up a leadership role in 2014. Prior to that, I have worked for both the NHS and been employed through a local council supporting a range of schools in the Kingston-upon-Hull area.
On a personal level, I am very keen on travelling and enjoy seeing the world a bit at a time. I love a broad range sports, not least my beloved Hull City AFC (recently relegated from the English Premier League) and wherever possible, I love to combine these along with my precious family time!
