The Course Presenters

Kelvin Kemm

TLP is under the personal supervision of the Course Director Dr Kelvin Kemm.

Dr Kemm has had considerable experience in technology project management, strategic design and the development of educational systems. He is also well known for his involvement in the public awareness of technology. He regularly gives public lectures, writes popular articles and appears on radio and TV. He has also produced a number of technology TV programmes.

Since TLP is based on experiential learning, the TLP experience includes exposure to a wide variety of persons. In many instances the course leans on the mentorship concept in that high-powered speakers communicate directly with students. In this mode the natural experience, personality, advice and methodology of the speaker is exposed to the students.


In a typical TLP course, students are exposed to over 100 different persons.
