Here writes: Professor & Sir Ken Robinson

Author photo_Ken_Robinson2747Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, Sir Ken Robinson is one of the leading innovators. Born in 1950 in Liverpool, UK, Ken Robinson developed polio at the age of four. He had to give up his dream of becoming a professional footballer at an early age. As a young adult, he realized his real talent: speaking in front of an audience. Today he is one of the most sought-after speakers in the world, advising governments, corporations and NGOs in Europe, Asia and the US. In 1998 he headed a creativity, education and business commission for the UK government and later became a key figure in developing a strategy for Creative and Economic Development in the Peace Process for Ireland. He was also one of four international advisers to the Singapore government looking to become a creative hub in Southeast Asia. For 12 years he was Professor at the University of Warwick (UK). In 2011 he was included in the list of world elite thought leaders by the US business magazine “Fast Company” and in the ranking of the Thinkers50 list of the world's best business thought leaders. With over 25 million clicks, his TED speech “How Schools kill Creativity” is the most-viewed in the history of TED conferences. Ken Robinson lives with his family in Los Angeles. His last book "The Element" was a New York Times bestseller. More information at
