Todd Holcomb is the Chief Knowledge & Experience principal consultant at Millennium, an organization focused on putting the science and development of well-being at the core of education. Todd brings a deep bench of innovation in the educational domain, having helped pioneer new curricula, pedagogy, leadership and innovation initiatives in a variety of educational settings.
Todd also has twenty-five years of experience collaborating with CEOs and their leadership teams to forge fresh futures—starting with a clear purpose, then igniting everyone around it. He is a design thinker, with a deep practice in developing original, daring ideas—harnessing the creative genius in every individual—to further meaningful change in the world. He has helped to shape and design brand experiences at IBM, Brand Jordan, Gap, and Nike, just to name a few. In the education arena, Todd has helped build innovative curriculum in Systems Thinking and Entrepreneurship at Avenues The World School, helped launched the XQ Super School initiative, led the education non-profit The Future Project, and served on the board at Marin Montessori School where he helped launch a whole-student middle school. He also served on the board of the Oberlin Dance Company, where he helped to launch the new ODC Dance Commons for greater access to all creative talent in San Francisco.
Todd whole-heartedly believes in Drew’s mission—to engage students in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact. He believes there is no more important work at a time when the world continues to be uncertain, unpredictable, and in need of passionate, innovative thinkers and doers that have a systemic understanding of their impact in the world.
Todd holds a Juris Doctor from Santa Clara University, and Masters of Science in Education from Bankstreet College, and did his undergraduate studies at New Mexico State University. His son, Miles is a sophomore at Drew. The family actively seeks out new perspectives through community participation, travel and education, and loves most anything that sits at the intersection of cultural, design and art.
