What Sir Ken Robinson will be speaking about

The changing fortunes of the Fortune 500 will tell you that no company has a guaranteed place at the top. Keeping up and staying ahead of the game depends entirely on continuous and sustained innovation. We all know that’s true, but what do company leaders have to do to make it happen?

Sir Ken Robinson has worked with some of the world’s leading creative organizations—in the corporate, educational and cultural fields. In this presentation, he identifies the three myths about innovation that hold many organizations back, and the basic practices that drive the most innovative organizations ahead of the pack.

He presents a three-tier strategy to generate “systemic innovation” across the whole organization. He then identifies the three core roles of creative leaders to make this happen.

  • The three levels of systemic innovation
  • The basic roles of creative leaders
