Jamel has stood on numerous platforms and prestigious establishments as a Keynote speaker at St Mary’s University, University of East London, and Bath University to name a few. He has also featured on CBeebies “Tiny happy people” as an early years advisor, which gives transition tips to parents and professionals alike and which has been backed by the Duchess of Cambridge.
Passionate about the early years, Jamel stresses the importance of having men in the early years sector.

Jamel is excited to bring an ‘on the ground’ perspective to the Empowering Early Years Education webinar, to bring real-time insights and suggestions for how we can raise the profile of the sector and empower those working in the early years sector.
