Hello, I’m Laura Kirsop from London. I began my career as a primary school teacher, moved on to run Code Club in the UK and now work as a Product Manager at FutureLearn where I lead the Learning Experience workstream. You can read more about my professional experience on my CV.


I used to be in an indie-pop band called Internet Forever and now I'm in a doom band called Ex People

I've written lots of things, from zines about the end of the world to articles for Wired. I regularly nerd out about comics, TV and pop culture on my Tumblr.


I like speaking at events, writing things and advising early stage start-ups so get in touch for a chat.
