Christine Lynne Blackaby
Regional Director, Middle East/North Africa, Beaconhouse School Group

Christine Lynne Blackaby was born and raised in the UK. Her qualifications were all gained in Britain, including Newcastle University, Leeds University, Reading University, Manchester University and Herriot Watt in Edinburgh.

In the UK, Ms. Blackaby is recognised as a transformational and innovative school manager and leader. She specialises in Managing Change and Leading Effective Schools – areas in which she has had considerable success.

Ms. Blackaby has worked extensively in education across all age groups and is passionate about teaching and learning.  She has also been an advisor to the UK inspection body OFSTED.

In addition, her international experience includes working in Pakistan, Nigeria, Australia and now Abu Dhabi for Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC).

Ms. Blackaby is the author of two books – Leading Teaching and Learning and Shaping and Sharing a Pyramid. She has spoken at national and international conferences on Managing Change and Boys’ Underachievement.

Ms. Blackaby is also a qualified Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

Travel and adventure is a passion of Ms. Blackaby’s when she is not working. She loves mountains and the sea. Some of her adventures have included climbing the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland (from the hard side not the tourist side) and trekking part of the Hindu Kush, in Pakistan, on horseback.

Ms. Blackaby’s ambition is to own a boat and live to be a hundred years old as she has still quite a lot of travelling to do.
