Sir Ken Robinson - Le site officiel de Sir Ken Robinson

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.
