Dr.Benjamin Freud

Dr. Benjamin Freud was born and grew up in Paris, France. He moved to the US when he was 15 and spent eleven years there in different cities, before living in the UK, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, and now Thailand. He started his career in consulting for Internet start-ups in Silicon Valley in the late 1990s, working with people whose ambitions were no less than to change the world. This experience had a profound effect on Benjamin’s outlook on education, innovation, and entrepreneurialism. Benjamin continued to consult for larger and smaller firms in London and Tokyo in Technology, FMCGs, Financial Services, Pharmaceuticals, and Media.

Benjamin was the former Head of Upper Primary Academic Coordinator for Misk Schools, part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s Vision 2030 to make Saudi Arabia a global center for innovation. He was also VP of High School and Middle School at Harbour School, a 21st Century World School Finalist.

Benjamin is interested in creating spaces for purposeful thinking and action that contribute to the welfare of the bio-collective. This includes future-ready skills and future-saving ethics such as “practice eco-reciprocity,” “stand up for justice,” “share with solidarity,” and “act with kindness.”

In his spare time, Benjamin writes articles, has a podcast, and reads on all sorts of subjects.
