Co-founder and director
The IC Global Partnership | Europe
Sirin Myles is the co-founder of The IC Global Partnership, bringing her decades of experience in higher education to good use. With her co-founder, she has built an international community to support global education institutions through sharing best practices, training and development.
She is known for being collaborative, friendly and inclusive. A peer said: “I have watched Charlene and Sirin build such a valuable business for the international higher education community up from nothing, and during a pandemic. I think that says it all about their determination, personalities and talent.”
During the pandemic, the IC Global Partnership proved a “life-line” to many within the sector, with their IC Cafes. These ‘Cafes’ connected like-minded people who were not able to travel or meet as usual. They have transformed the way international education professionals can network, access best practice, engage with expert speakers, remain knowledgeable about any sector changes and enhance their professional development – all delivered through a hybrid model of working.
Sirin is passionate about internationalisation of education, sustainability, inclusivity and unlocking individual and organisational potential. She is a highly experienced international leader and specialist in higher education. She has more than 20 years of international marketing and leadership experience in diplomatic and higher education organisations.
“Charlene and Sirin are true role models for others in international education,” a peer said. “They are striving to become leaders in the area of environmental sustainability and championing equality and diversity in their coaching and mentoring of educational professionals.”
