About the speaker

Natalie Chan is an educator, engineer, film producer, adventure-seeker, entrepreneur and a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum. Chan’s curiosity in education was sparked from the realization that there is a disconnect between the focus of schools and what the real world demands. After three years in the corporate world, she decided to dedicate her life to solving the gap between schooling and employment, helping people find their life path with passion and equipping them with the 21st Century skills to succeed. After five years of research and experimentation in education, which includes teaching at a progressive school in Hong Kong and receiving a Master of Education from the Hong Kong University, Chan founded OWN Academy in 2016. OWN Academy serves as the interface to the new world, with a focus on real-world learning, connecting students to industry professionals as mentors and empowering students on a journey to self-actualization. Today, Chan’s mission is to re-engineer an innovative education ecosystem that is personalized, decentralized and democratized.
