As a global thought leader on academic reform,
public health, entrepreneurship, STEM education &
skills training, online learning, innovation
engagement, TVET, business incubators, and
development programmes, Dr. Sadiyo Siad believes
‘education and training’ is the key to improve the
lives of others.
At one point in her life, Dr. Sadiyo was out of
school and when she arrived in Denmark as a
refugee back in the 1990s, the first thing she wanted,
‘was not a winter jacket, even though it was a winter
when she first arrived in Denmark, or an apartment
to live in, or even money to live by’ but when she
could start attending school and get an education.
Despite, the many challenges, she has faced, her educational background, including a PhD in Tuberculosis and Immunology, MSc in Infectious Diseases and Immunology, MSc in Medical Diagnostics, a PGD in Medical Pathology, with Honours in Undergraduate Degree at the University of Leicester and Cranfield University, plus a Diploma in Nursing from her early work as a nurse and midwife assistant, gives her all the credentials to stand tall on a global arena.
As a serial social entrepreneur Dr. Sadiyo’s work is contributing to Somalia’s economics, peacebuilding, education and skills training, employment, social development, and human capital development mechanisms using the 3 Es (Empowerment, Education and Employment) model. Today, Dr. Sadiyo Siad is the chancellor at Hano Academy, and the executive director at eLearningX and the Somali STEM Society. She is also a researcher and a public speaker, and delivers training and consultancy in areas such as education and training, public health, community development, employment, entrepreneurship, business incubators, empowerment and gender – and many more. She has spoken at many national and international conferences and events and has also featured on numerous television and radio news programmes, including BBC Leicester Radio on several occasions, and BBC TV East Midlands, Channel 4, ITV, HBO, Universal TV (Somali TV), VOA, Integration TV, Dalsan TV and SN TV, and many more.
Throughout the many years I’ve been working in the
education sector, I’ve realised that there are millions of
people who are ‘knowledge seekers’ and there are also
many people with the natural ability and talent to train
and teach online, but these aspiring instructors need
support and a platform to do this.
Thus, I have created the right tools and network for you
to conquer this.
From assistant trainer/teacher, workshop facilitator to
university lecturer, I have done it all, online or offline
training/teaching in different settings. Now, I want to
connect with like-minded people who wish to make a
difference through their knowledge and skills by
Do you feel you have an idea that could be a life
Do you have the drive?
Can you train/teach?
Do you feel like ‘you can see the potential…, the end
result… but, the path towards it, is jumbled?
If any of your answers is a YES, then ‘let’s do this
