Suan Yeo

Head of Google Education for Australia & New Zealand

As Google’s Head of Education in Australia and New Zealand, Suan hopes to change the world, one educator at a time. After stints in the United States, Europe and Asia, Suan moved to Australia in 2008 to head up Google’s Enterprise SMB business for Asia-Pacific. Six years ago, he took on the challenge of starting the Education business unit for the region and has been innovating and growing that sector ever since.

Suan works tirelessly with educators and administrators to enable more effective teaching and learning within technology. “It’s all about the students,” says Suan, “and everything we do in Education needs to be driving towards better learning outcomes for the next generation of users.” Despite the magnitude of this task, Suan humbly and simply describes his job as doing really cool things that matter.
