“Food For Thought celebrates the intersection of creative thinking, entrepreneurialism and social responsibility, so we felt that Sir Ken Robinson was the perfect fit for our audience – and Ken did not disappoint. Ken has an uncanny ability to keep the audience laughing with his dry wit, while also imparting nuggets of wisdom that resonate with the audience. As our final speaker of the three-day conference, Sir Ken tied everything neatly together when he challenged us to apply our creative energies to very complex issues.”
