Rochelle Bennett

Founder and Director

I am 49, married and have three kids. Like most people, everything I do and how I think has been shaped by my family and my life experiences. I am grateful for all the curveballs that life has thrown at me as they have helped me to become who I am. Many who know me say that I am determined, ambitious and I get stuff done. I have worked as an IT Professional for over 20 years and I still get involved in interesting business transformation programs. My entrepreneurial spirit and desire to help people inspired me to establish Obsidian Data in the hope of using technology to educate and inspire people to be the absolute best they can be.

It is an incredible honour for me to work with a team of experts that come to work every day to make a difference. They are not just good at what they do, they are passionate about changing the education landscape with magical creations.
