Alex Grech

3CL Foundation
I am a strategist, change consultant and educator. I bridge the gap between strategy, education and the mindful use of digital technologies. My teaching, consulting and public policy work focuses on Digital Identity, Digital Credentials, Blockchain, EdTech & Media Literacy. I am a partner in the DEL4ALL.eu project and a consultant to the European Commission on the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure project.

I have a PhD in Internet Computing from the University of Hull and I'm an F.C.C.A by profession. My academic interests are in digital cultures, social media and power. As a consultant, I work with corporates, governments, public institutions and NGOs on projects impacted by disruptive technology.

My corporate career in financial and business management provided me with a solid grounding for the eventual shift to strategy and change management. My industry expertise includes telecoms and ICT, public sector reform, Fintech, tourism, education and culture. I've worked as an advisor to Government, multinationals and start-ups. I was the founding Chairman of Heritage Malta and wrote the Malta National Lifelong Learning Strategy 2020. I coordinated the first nation-state project on Blockchain credentials and I continue to work on national strategies for Connected Learning, Digital Education and OER.
