Andrea Clarke

Cahoot Learning thought leader Andrea ClarkeAndrea Clarke likes to refer to herself as a recovering television news reporter who is obsessed with helping people accelerate their careers. As a correspondent, she covered major news events around the world for Al Jazeera English, the Pentagon Channel and Thomson Reuters before working on humanitarian aid programs to re-build Iraq and Afghanistan. Andrea then led the communication campaign for the Save Darfur advocacy movement to stop the genocide in Sudan.

She moved back to Australia in 2012, this is when she founded FutureFitCo with the purpose of helping people build confidence, communicate with authority and accelerate their careers. This was the inspiration for Andrea to write her first book – ‘Future Fit: How to Stay Relevant and Competitive in the Future of Work’. Her book ‘Future Fit’ was a finalist in the Australian Career Book Award 2019, a winner of the Australian Business Book of the Year 2019 and a finalist in the UK Business Book Awards 2020. Nothing is more rewarding for her than helping others succeed. 

How is it done?

Active learning with cohorts

Learners will generate ideas, present and deliver together with their peers to help get different perspectives, internalise learnings and identify ways to apply them in the workforce.

Deep reflections

Learners will have the opportunity to reflect and analyse what they have learnt, how far they have come, and how they can apply these learnings in the workforce.

Real-time insights

Learners get real-time insights on how far they are performing vs their cohort that helps set their pace and enjoy a healthy dose of competition at the same time.

Immersive experience

Learners get rich, snackable content that helps boost their retention. They are given tools that enable strong collaboration and deep conversations with their peers. 

“Most immersive and engaging course I have ever done. Coming into this course I had no idea what the delivery style was going to be like - to be honest I thought it would be a lot more 'death by slides'. How wrong I was... I have absolutely loved the immersive, interactive and collaborative nature of all the exercises.”
