Hello

Thank you for visiting my website. If you click on the bio tab, you’ll see that I’ve been doing what I do for a fairly long time! Along the way, I’ve balanced various roles – as a writer, researcher, adviser, teacher and speaker. I’ve also been involved in many projects and initiatives around the world – with national and local education systems, and with corporate, cultural and community organizations. There’s a consistent mission in all of this and if I were to sum it up in a sentence, this is it: “to transform the culture of education and organizations with a richer conception of human creativity and intelligence.” Everything you’ll find on this website is connected to this mission. I trust you’ll find something to interest you here and that you’ll come back often.

NPR – Ted Radio Hour: How Do Schools Kill Creativity?

I really enjoyed recording this interview for the recent TED Radio Hour on NPR on creativity. I’m particularly delighted that Dame Gillian Lynn is in the piece too retelling with me the story of her discovery as a child that she wasn’t ‘sick’, she was a dancer. The full program also features interviews with Sting, Elizabeth Gilbert and Charles Limb.
