Niamh & Rob founded Hippo in early 2017. We are both designers and passionate about creating new and improved ways that students can learn to develop their own voice to succeed at higher level & beyond. This is important to us as Niamh has lived & worked in Indonesia, countries in Africa & South America and couldn’t speak the language!

Our expertise is in educational design, course creation, English language teaching, software development, user experience design, building learning communities, drinking coffee and understanding what is missing for learners so that we can fix it.
