Website and blog of New York Times best selling author of "The Element", TED speaker, education and creativity expert
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.
