We are now accepting registrations for our biggest event of the year, and here’s one of the biggest reasons you shouldn’t miss out. Every year we look for the best keynote speakers who inspire the future of learning and challenge the conventional beliefs and culture of education. In keeping with this tradition, I am thrilled to announce that we have a truly visionary leader lined up to take the stage this year – Sir Ken Robinson, who’s “vision and expertise is sought by public and commercial organizations throughout the world.” – BBC Radio 4.
Here’s a quick bio:
An internationally recognized authority in creativity and innovation in education and business, Sir Ken Robinson is also one of the world’s leading speakers. Videos of his famous talks to the prestigious TED Conference are the most viewed in the history of the organization and have been seen by an estimated 300 million people in over 150 countries.
Sir Ken works with governments in Europe, Asia and the US, international agencies, Fortune 500 companies and leading cultural organizations. He led a national commission on creativity, education and the economy for the UK Government, was the central figure in developing a strategy for creative and economic development as part of the Peace Process in Northern Ireland, and was one of four international advisors to the Singapore Government for a strategy to become the creative hub of SE Asia.
