Are we educating people out of their creativity? Do we need to radically rethink our school systems? Today’s podcast guest, Sir Ken Robinson, is here to shed light on these and other critical questions. And along the way, he might just inspire you to take your creativity into your own hands…

You may know Sir Ken Robinson from his record-breaking TED Talk, Are Schools Killing Creativity? It’s the most viewed talk in the organisation’s history, and has been seen by an estimated 350 million people worldwide.

Sir Ken is an internationally recognised leader on creativity and human potential, focusing on one of the most critical issues of our time: how to transform our troubled educational systems. He’s also the author of the New York Times bestselling The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything (which has sold more than a million copies) and a slew of other books as well.

As someone whose soul thrives through creative expression, this is a topic that’s near and dear to my heart… and I know it is to many of you too. It’s SO important to the health of our planet and the happiness of our kids that we prioritise creativity, and that our schools are run in a way that fosters this essential skill in generations to come…
